Bremer Bank Two-Story Buildling

White bank building with glass windows surrounding by a parking lot and green space



In an effort to modernize their banking, Bremer Bank has proposed a new, two-story bank branch on the northern parcel of their existing bank site. The 7,500 sq. ft. office /bank building will offer a modern, clean space that is better suited to today's banking style. Upon the competition of the 2-story building, the existing 4-story office building will likely be redeveloped into a new use.
