Brockport to welcome Canandaigua National Bank in 2020

Following the authorization of a commercial building permit back in May 2018, the construction of Canandaigua National Bank and Trust’s (CNB) newest branch location in the Village of Brockport is currently underway. With plans of a grand opening in the early months of Spring 2020, Brockport will be the home of the company’s 25th community branch office, located at the intersection of Routes 19 and 31 in the Wegmans plaza. 

The plans behind the Brockport opening stem from the local banking group’s sights on expanding its customer base while being more accessible to those in need of a closer outlet. Once open to the public next year, the Brockport location will be able to connect those who live in the outskirts of Rochester, NY, such as Hamlin, Clarkson and Spencerport residents, thus allowing for the company’s service to be more flexible and efficient. 

Beginning construction stages of the new bank site officially began in June of 2018 and was led by Bloomfield, NY-based company Frank J. Marianacci Inc. The construction company has partnered with the Masina architect group in order to fulfill the project plans. 

Both groups have been responsible for a handful of CNB branch buildings in the past and also operate as the company’s main entity for any necessary maintenance. 

“We would not be here if it wasn’t for CNB,” Frank J. Marianacci Inc. veteran employee Darrell Rector said. “We are very happy to be working with them [CNB] again, the team is great.” 

While the new Brockport branch of the banking group will add to its network of customer service locations, the chosen area for the grounds expands on the vast amount of banking company options that residents of Brockport already have. Planning, Building and Zoning Coordinator Phyllis Brudz at the Sweden Town Hall believes there are many positives from the inclusion of CNB in Brockport’s large volume of banks. 

“I believe they [CNB] will be a very good addition,” Brudz said. “I think they [CNB] will bring competition which is always a good thing. We all welcome them and cannot wait for the opening.”

According to Brudz, who played a role in the issuing of the commercial building permit which was granted on May 1, 2018, securing the specific permit is occasionally an extensive process for all parties involved. CNB representatives who are working on the project have reacted promptly. 

“They [CNB] have been great to work with,” Brudz said. “Those affiliated in the plans have been very responsive and quick to help, which is a good thing for everyone.” 

Despite several months to go until the projected date of completion, those who visit the new Brockport location can expect CNB’s signature sit-down teller service along with a complete service office. The current blueprint of the construction plans also features complimentary parking and a drive-thru window service for customers to use. 

As CNB customers await for Brockport’s location to open its doors, the banking group forecasts a greater flow of consumer traffic and an increase in its service accessibility upon additions of future branches.
