Horizon Bank Strengthens Commitment to Kalamazoo with New Professional Office in Historic Downtown Building

Kalamazoo, Michigan – Horizon Bank is proud to announce the establishment of a new professional office in the heart of downtown Kalamazoo, located at 151 East Michigan Avenue. This new location underscores Horizon Bank’s unwavering commitment to the Kalamazoo community, offering prime access to the city's bustling core and facilitating enhanced engagement and growth.

Situated along the primary thoroughfare of East Michigan Avenue, this office resides in the historic bank building originally constructed in 1905 for Kalamazoo-City Savings Bank, the first chartered bank in the State of Michigan. The 13,000-square-foot building not only holds significant historical value but also provides a strategic location at the corner of E. Michigan Avenue and Portage Street, near the entrance to the new Haymarket District.

Horizon Bank will occupy nearly 4,000 square feet at street level in this historic bank building. Unlike traditional branch operations, this office will focus on delivering comprehensive commercial and personal banking services. The planned remodel aims to refresh the space with modern design elements and enhanced customer amenities. Dedicated spaces for private consultations and financial planning will be added to ensure customers receive personalized attention in a confidential setting. Every aspect of the renovation has been meticulously planned to create a welcoming and efficient environment, making banking more convenient and enjoyable for all customers.

“This new office is strategically positioned for further growth and will showcase our dedication to the Kalamazoo community, going beyond traditional banking services to meet the evolving needs of our customers,” stated John Crandle, Market President. “Our investment in this historic building and its renovation reflects our long-term commitment to fostering strong relationships and supporting the economic vitality of Kalamazoo.”
