First Florida Integrity Bank executives, along with representatives from the Marco Island city government and Chamber of Commerce participated in the ground breaking for the new 3,000 square foot single-story building located between Paradise Seafood and Walker’s Marine on Bald Eagle Drive.
“For years, First Florida Integrity Bank has had a storefront here on the island. We are very excited to have them breaking ground for a new building which will serve as a full-service branch,” remarks Dianna Dohm, Executive Director of the Marco Island Chamber of Commerce.
“The plans for the 3,000 square foot building include a small conference room the community can use. We kept storms and hurricanes in mind with our design. Instead of putting a traditional generator on this building, we made this a hurricane stable facility by putting an entire solar array on the roof of the building. We have a Tesla battery system within the building. The entire building will be fully operational with hours of a storm event. With a half a day of sun, we will be able to run the building all day long,” explains Mark McLean, MHK Architecture & Planning.
The completion date is set for April 2019.
