Working with La Macchia Group for over five years on their Wisconsin market strategy, Town Bank/Wintrust wanted to identify a new market that would both respond to their corporate culture and fall in line with their business model. La Macchia Group recommended Elm Grove as a suitable new market, and an existing gas station in the heart of the Village’s downtown as the right site for the project. La Macchia Group approached the acquisition expeditiously and with extreme confidentiality in order to smooth the bank’s entrance into the Village. La Macchia Group further streamlined the difficult process of rezoning a residential property to a commercial designation by working with local community and government leaders.
As this complicated job needed to meet the high expectations of both the owner and the community, La Macchia Group designed, built, and delivered a building reflective of the area’s distinguished Old World architecture. The result is a bank that serves a distinct market of wealth management clients, young professionals and business owners. The structure, which sits at an entry point to the community, embodies Town Bank’s brand as well as its sense of strength, stability, and readiness to be a pillar of the community.
Our new Elm Grove office posed several challenges before construction could begin – site acquisition, rezoning and environmental clean-up of the site. La Macchia Group assisted us in all these areas and designed and built a bank office that reflects the Old World architecture of the Elm Grove community. What was an abandoned gas station is now an attractive and functional bank building that enhances the downtown area. We were very pleased with their efforts on our behalf.
