Community Choice Credit Union announces new Royal Oak location

Passersby will notice a transformation on the corner of 12 Mile and Crooks in Royal Oak, as Community Choice Credit Union breaks ground on a new member center. When completed, Community Choice will move to this new location from the current one across the street.
 
The parcel of land was formerly a gas station and has been vacant since January 2016. Community Choice has actively worked together with city officials and community leaders to rezone the property and prepare the site for the new build.
 
“The city is excited to see a new, beautiful building going up to add some much needed curb appeal to this busy corner,” said Mayor of Royal Oak Jim Ellison. “With two other gas stations at this intersection, transforming this corner into a member center is an upgraded benefit for the entire community.”
 
The member center will have a unique architecture based on the shape of the parcel. The building will be triangular in shape, with sides that will face both Crooks and 12 Mile Roads.  It will add pedestrian-friendly sidewalks with a garden terrace and bench seats at the intersection.
 
On the inside, visitors will be welcomed into a café-like atmosphere without traditional teller lines. This new member center design focuses on relationship building between the credit union and members, and enhances the financial services experience. In 2015, Community Choice renovated member centers in Northville, Livonia and Milford, all featuring the new design.
 
“This fall, we’re not only breaking ground on a new member center, but also a new era in serving our Royal Oak members,” said Rob Bava, president and CEO of Community Choice Credit Union. “Community Choice Credit Union has been a part of the Royal Oak community since 1972 and we’re looking forward to adding beauty to this corner and creating a place where the entire community can get together to create healthy financial futures.”
 
The new Royal Oak Member Center is slated to open in spring of 2017. For more information on Community Choice Credit Union visitCommunityChoiceCU.com.
