In the U-Med District, a new 19,500 sq. ft. building was completed in December of 2014. First National Bank Alaska and Imaging Associates will occupy the 2-story building, located on the southwest corner of Providence Drive and Piper Street. Site amenities include heated sidewalks and convenient access through pedestrian and bike paths.  Expansive windows allow for natural light and views of the surrounding landscape.  The new building is designed to integrate into the existing environment and the surrounding U-Med District.

The 31st branch of First National Bank Alaska is a demonstration of the bank’s interest in providing convenient service to customers in the growing health care industry and the Alaskans these health professionals serve. First National is also hoping to include among the bank’s new customers more of Alaska’s best and brightest; students at the University of Alaska Anchorage. The new branch will offer three drive-up lanes, including a drive-up ATM and night drop, as well as a full-function customer kiosk and private offices for lending activities.

First National Bank Alaska is slated to opened in January 2015 and Imaging Associates plans to open in the spring of 2015.
