The Baylake Bank Sister Bay Financial Center is preparing to move to a new location at 2477 S. Bay Shore Drive and reopen as Nicolet National Bank on May 2. Hoffman Planning, Design & Construction, Inc. is completing a full interior renovation of an existing facility at the new location.
The merger of Baylake Bank and Nicolet National Bank is final on April 29. “The timing was perfect to move, install new systems and reopen as Nicolet,” said Larry Gajda, Baylake Bank Sister Bay Financial Center manager. “The plan came together seamlessly.”
Hoffman is remodeling the 9,695-square-foot facility to include new offices, gathering spaces, conference rooms, and five teller stations, as well as adding an easy-to-access drive-thru ATM. Annika Schuller-Rash, Hoffman project manager, says the project provided some unique architectural challenges. “Despite the modern updates, it was important to Baylake Bank that the design preserved the stonework fireplace and the rest of the Door County charm and character of this wonderful building,” Schuller-Rash said.
Baylake Bank purchased its new facility from Sister Bay Trading Company, which will continue to share space in the building.
The Sister Bay office will be closed April 29-30, to complete the move, and will reopen on May 2, as Nicolet National Bank.
