New corporate headquarters celebrates Mississippi River, Bettendorf community
A 40,200-square-foot facility consolidates Ascentra Credit Union’s administrative functions, previously spread out over several dated buildings. It features a branch bank on the first floor, open offices on the second and third, and executive suites on the fourth.
The building, one of the tallest in Bettendorf, optimizes views toward the Mississippi River. The design also announces the organization to those approaching from the new I-74 Bridge (connects Illinois and Iowa). The high-profile corporate facility was designed to set the tone for further redevelopment in downtown Bettendorf.
The new headquarters launches a long-range plan to revitalize downtown Bettendorf. The facility’s location on a major corner of the new Bettendorf Town Square mixed-use development encourages additional growth and sets an aesthetic tone for future facilities.
