HSA Commercial Real Estate and Horicon Bank today jointly announce that the bank will be building a new branch at The Mayfair Collection in Wauwatosa, Wis. Horicon Bank plans to construct a two-story flagship branch building that will house retail banking operations, business lending offices, as well as conference and private offices for the firm’s executives. The new bank location, which will offer drive-thru services, will be situated on an undeveloped parcel just south of the former Osgood’s restaurant building. The existing Osgood’s building will be renovated to create two new retail storefronts, one of which has been leased to Sleep Number.
Scheduled to open in early 2022 pending regulatory approval, the new branch office at The Mayfair Collection is part of a broader strategic initiative by Horicon Bank to increase its presence in the Milwaukee market. That expansion effort will also include a new branch this summer at the corner of Cleveland and Moorland in New Berlin, as well. While The Mayfair Collection location will serve as a focal point of the Milwaukee market for Horicon Bank, its home office will remain in Horicon, in the same classical building that the firm has occupied since 1915.
Horicon Bank President, Fred F. Schwertfeger said the bank looks forward to bringing a community banking option to Milwaukee. “We have been looking for an opportunity to be The Natural Choice in community banking to Milwaukee, and The Mayfair Collection is a superb site to fly our goose.”
“Horicon Bank is a company that is rich in history and tradition in Wisconsin,” said Brenton Schrader, vice president of leasing and marketing at HSA Commercial Real Estate. “Their values and dedication to relationship-building in customer service are a real inspiration to us as entrepreneurs and stakeholders in the community, and we look forward to having them as part of The Mayfair Collection.”
For more than 125 years, Horicon Bank has built a foundation of beneficial relationships with their customers. With twenty locations in total, Horicon Bank has grown steadily in recent years with new locations in Fond du Lac, Oshkosh, and Waupun.
Developed by HSA Commercial Real Estate, the 69-acre mixed-use Mayfair Collection project at U.S. Highway 45 and Burleigh Street includes more than 400,000 square feet of retail anchored by Whole Foods Market and Nordstrom Rack, numerous local restaurants, coworking and corporate office space, a 146-room Hilton Homewood Suites, and Synergy, a community of 269 luxury apartments. Additional apartments, senior housing units and corporate office buildings are planned for future phases of the high-density, walkable development.
