ESL Federal Credit Union to Build New Branch in City of Rochester’s Edgerton Neighborhood

The new branch will be the first of three ESL plans to build in the City of Rochester. The other two locations are still being determined.

Rochester, NY — ESL Federal Credit Union announces it will soon break ground on its first new branch to be built within the City of Rochester since 2010. The new branch will be located at 250 Lake Avenue and will serve as a relocation of its current office at 379 State Street. The new Lake Ave. branch will employ a staff of seven and serve as a more accessible option for both pedestrians and vehicles.

The new branch will be the first of three ESL plans to build in the City of Rochester. The other two locations are still being determined.

“We have long served City of Rochester residents with our State Street Office, and relocating the branch to a new site, less than a mile north, will allow us to deliver a better, more accessible experience for our customers,” says Marcelina Nobrega Courtney, Senior Vice President/Director, Retail Banking. “We know access to financial products and services is a key tenant to building financial wellness and wealth. With this new branch, we reaffirm our commitment to assisting City of Rochester residents and businesses with their banking needs.”

The full-service facility will be approximately 5,600 square feet offering personal, business banking, and wealth management services. The office will also include such amenities as ATMs, teller drive-up lanes, bike rack, accessibility to the bus line, and a connecting pedestrian walkway to Lake Avenue.

ESL is scheduled to begin its groundbreaking this summer, with an expected opening in Fall 2021.
