Mayo Credit Union to head south
Here's some my column in today's holiday paper about the Mayo Employees Credit Union pulling the trigger on the plan they announced more than years ago to build a new branch in Rochester 2.0, Shoppes On Maine.
More than four years after the plans were announced, the Mayo Employees Credit Union is gearing up to build a new branch in southeast Rochester.
The plan is to deposit a 6,000-square-foot branch between the south Super Target complex and the Rochester Toyota dealership.
That's in the Shoppes on Maine development on the far south side of the Med City.
While it will be a similar design, this branch will be slightly larger than Mayo Credit Union's branch at 41st Street Northwest and West Circle Drive.
This is a project that was first proposed in 2007 when the Target store was still under construction and Shoppes on Maine was still new.
The Mayo Employees Credit Union bought the land to build the branch for $1.45 million on March 20, 2007.
Now four years later, Bryan Anderson of Mayo Clinic says it is expected that the branch will be completed and open by the spring of 2012.
