We are excited to share Centra has closed on a property at 501 Washington Street in downtown Columbus! This location will give Centra space to continue growing and offer a convenient location for our teams who work directly with our individual and business Members.
We have been searching for the right space to better serve Members who live or work in the downtown area and this building is a great opportunity. Centra President & CEO Rick Silvers says Centra is proud to expand its presence in Columbus.
“Centra has always called Columbus home, and we’re excited to be a part of the Downtown Columbus community. The new building is in the heart of Columbus and within walking distance of many of our Members and Business Members working or based downtown. This gives Centra the opportunity to better and more conveniently meet their needs for investing, borrowing, saving, mortgage and title services, and business lending and deposit needs,” Silvers said.
Centra has been headquartered in Columbus since it was founded in 1940, and the new downtown facility will be a great way to celebrate our 80th anniversary of serving the community.
We are currently reviewing any renovations or improvements needed to the property and are planning for an opening in fourth quarter 2020. At that time, Members will have access to a full range of banking services downtown, including Interactive Teller Machines (ITMs), which allow Members to access a live video teller for extended banking hours.
In addition to our new Centra Corporate Headquarters (CCHQ) currently under construction, this new location will give Centra extra space to continue growing while offering a convenient location for Members to meet with financial advisors, mortgage loan specialists, and Business Services representatives.
