1st Financial Credit Union was looking to expand their reach within their community. Their original facility did not provide that high visibility location or curb appeal to immerse their business into a broader market. After La Macchia Group completed a thorough market analysis, it was clear the best re-location for their new branch would be in St. Charles, Missouri.

La Macchia group collectively worked together with 1st Financial to assist in this transition. Everything from market analysis and real estate procurement to architecture and construction management helped bring this new location to fruition. La Macchia Group worked diligently with 1st Financial on its acquisition of a newly created site which was subdivided from a local church. La Macchia took on all aspects of site development from legal subdivision through planning and zoning.

One important goal for this branch was to have high visibility from the road. The La Macchia design team included a tower at the entrance that was easily viewed by those passing by.
