Back in 2015, we were pouring cement, meeting our new neighbors and learning where to get the best sandwich — all in anticipation of the opening of our first Richmond branch, located on Patterson Avenue in the City of Richmond’s Westhampton neighborhood.
Entering the Richmond market has been a part of Chesapeake Bank’s long-term strategy, but we weren’t willing to compromise or cut corners. For the Bank’s first branch in Richmond, a perfect-fit scenario was imperative. That’s when Chesapeake Bank discovered Westhampton. From its rich history to its promising future, the Westhampton neighborhood offers a small-town feeling and connected sense of community that is a huge part of what defines Chesapeake Bank.
Before the bank is open for business, Chesapeake Bank leaders are meeting with business and community leaders to learn more about the area and to identify where Chesapeake Bank can get involved and make a positive impact.
The 7,500 square-foot, custom built location is home to athe majority of our Richmond area associates, from loan production to banking.
