People’s Bank built a new mixed-use building in Klamath Falls with a Branch and Workforce Housing
I sat down with Steve Erb, Chief Strategy Officer of People’s Bank to talk about the new mixed-use bank building he just oversaw the construction of in Klamath Falls. It’s the first mixed-use building the bank has built and might become a blueprint for future branches.
The bank occupies the entire first floor of the beautiful new building and the second story is made up of 2 one bedroom and 1 two bedroom apartments.
I toured the building while it was nearing completion and the design reminds me of a modern/urban loft you would find in the pearl district.
The ceilings are very high and the floor to ceiling windows offer wonderful views of the new area that is being developed near downtown. You can see the lake from two apartments for now.
The building also features the banks first solar installation which will offset the energy used by the bank itself.
There is also an e-charging station in the parking lot for the next generation of vehicles.
The energy efficient building also offers tankless water heaters and very efficient appliances including a washer and dryer in each apartment.
They will offer two of the units furnished and Steve believes that the location and design will appeal to OIT Professionals, traveling nurses and air national guard leaders that are stationed for up to a year, each needing temporary housing.
Construction on the 90,000 SQFT DHS building has started across the road from the new bank.
A Grand Opening Event will be held at the building at the end of April. The branch is open now.
