Amarillo-based City Federal Credit Union is celebrating the opening of its Soncy branch (8100 South Soncy), which will act as the gateway to Western Amarillo in the subdivision of Heritage Hills.
The 45-foot-tall building was designed with a full stone façade, cathedral lobby, seven private offices, and a community room for up to 42 people, which includes a peaked roof lined with skylights. The location is accented by a standalone marquee digital display sign—a 14-foot-wide, superbright, two-sided LED display that is finished in stone and sits 36 feet tall.
The new facility relies heavily on the latest interactive teller machine technology. The drive-thru is completely self-serve. An additional feature of the ITM technology allows a member to request a teller to assist or perform transactions remotely.
“We are excited about implementing the state-of-the-art, contactless technology,” said Frank A. Frazzitta, CEO. “Today’s announcement is another reminder that City FCU stands ready to serve all of Amarillo. Our western location supports the development of Heritage Hills, and our eastern location continues to serve the downtown members from the City of Amarillo and is our hub to serving the underserved.
Branch Vice President Lynnette Padilla and a team of four employees are ready to serve existing and future members at the new branch. City FCU also offers online, mobile, and home banking services to provide members with 24/7 account access.
A ribbon cutting was held on Aug. 21, followed by the grand opening on Aug. 28. More than 200 persons visited the facility, which received a warm response from the public, its membership, and the Heritage Hill community.
