BankNewport, a Rhode Island-based savings bank offering mortgage and business lending services, has opened its newest location in Johnston. The bank teamed up with Paramount Partners, DiPrete Engineering, Brown Lindquist Fenuccio & Raber Architects, and Cape Architects to convert a formerly vacant site into its new 1,100 square foot bank.
Located on half an acre at the corner of Hartford and Atwood Avenue, this is the town’s first BankNewport branch to open. The new bank includes two drive-thru lanes, 18 parking spaces, and has a drive-up image-enabled Personal Teller Machine (PTM) providing extended hours for banker support, in addition to a walk-up ATM and a night depository.
“As one of the highest traffic areas in the state, the bank is very accessible to local customers,” said David Russo, Senior Project Manager at DiPrete Engineering. “It’s a convenient location with easy access for residents and commuters alike.”
DiPrete Engineering provided civil/site engineering, construction assistance, survey, landscape design, and received permits from the Rhode Island Department of Environmental Management as well as the Rhode Island Department of Transportation.
