Gate City Bank Fergus Falls, MN

A contaminated site becomes a downtown landmark.

Fulfilling an emerging market need, this 4,100 SF branch bank has a commercial edge and residential feel welcoming new customers.

Dedication to community improvement, the rehabilitation of this brownfield site included EPA-approved extraction and disposal of underground gasoline and oil storage tanks. The use of specially engineered helical piers and fill resolve the river bed soils issues to ensure bearing capacity.

Building upon an established language of materials and brand identity, this facility uses a stone accent wall which serves as a contrasting yet complementary backdrop for building signage. The stone texture is amplified by the accent lighting.

  • Creative building orientation and placement capitalize on exposure to main city circulation route.
  • Large windows maximize views and daylight with sunshades to diminish glare.
  • Clearstory windows provide for deep penetration of natural light.
  • Lighting accents building walls and the large windows advertise the bank’s warm and inviting interior at night.
