Crews break ground on Legacy Bank HQ

Posted online

Construction crews last week broke ground on Legacy Bank & Trust Co.'s new headquarters.

A June 16 groundbreaking ceremony marked the official start of the 40,000-square-foot project at 3250 E. Sunshine St., according to a news release posted on the website of BRP Architects, the project's design firm. Base Construction & Management LLC is serving as general contractor for the construction that's slated to wrap up in summer 2021.

“The classic and functional design of this facility will have a positive impact on the lives of our talented team while providing high-end amenities to better serve the bank’s premier small-business and individual customers in the region,” said Brandon Taylor, chief financial officer and chief operations officer for Legacy Bank, in the release. “We have selected a top-notch team to design and construct this project, and we are excited to see our vision take life.”

The four-story building is designed with 1,600 square feet of retail banking space with a drive-thru on the ground floor. The second and fourth floors will be used for commercial and administrative banking operations, according to the release. Legacy Bank President and CEO John Everett previously told Springfield Business Journal the third floor would be leased out.

George Mandrik, project architect with BRP, said demolition of a former Meek’s Lumber Co. property was conducted prior to the groundbreaking ceremony last week. He said footings have been poured for the project, situated between Starbucks and State Bank of Southwest Missouri on East Sunshine Street.

A city building permit lists a declared valuation of $5 million for the Legacy Bank construction.

Legacy Bank last year bought the 2.4-acre property after it had been listed on the market for $2.6 million, according to past SBJ reporting. Everett previously said the company would sell its roughly 4,000-square-foot administrative office at 1525 E. Republic Road, Ste. B-135.
