GreenChoice  Bank  Opens the Midwest's First

LEED Platinum Community  Bank  Location on Aug. 29

Flagship Address at Chicago's  Green  Exchange Building

CHICAGO (Aug. 2, 2011) --  GreenChoice  Bank 's executive management team will open its flagship location in Chicago at the Green  Exchange building, 2545 W. Diversey Ave., on Monday, Aug. 29. The  bank  is anticipated to be the first LEED Platinum community  bank  location in the Midwest, and one of only a few in the country.

The newly constructed location will meet Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Platinum standards for Commercial Interiors. The  bank 's management team -- half are LEED Accredited Professionals -- has considerable experience when it comes to building sustainable structures and interiors.

In addition to making loans to qualified businesses that build sustainably, the team retrofitted GreenChoice  Bank 's two, century-old branch locations to environmentally-sound standards for LEED - for Existing Buildings: Operations & Maintenance (LEED-EB: O&M) certification. Those were dedicated earlier this year, launching the GreenChoice  Bank  brand in Cicero and Lockport, Ill.

GreenChoice  Bank  is one of the first tenants to move into Green  Exchange. The four-story, 272,000-square-foot converted historic building marked by its iconic signature tower along Chicago's Kennedy Expressway -- will be the epicenter of businesses offering trade and consumer services to sustainably-minded clientele. GreenChoice  Bank 's entrance is along Diversey Avenue, just west of Maplewood.
