“I am a fifth generation Titusville resident, and I know my great-grandmother who lived in Woodland Park for decades would be smiling down on us knowing that we were able to get another bank over here in District Six,” exclaimed Birmingham City Councilor Crystal Smitherman in an interview with Bham Now.
The Heritage Town Center branch is located at 873 Dennison Avenue S.W., Suite 101, Birmingham, Alabama 35211.
The full-service branch provides residential and commercial loans as well as retail and business banking services.
The Cadence Bank site offers a diverse portfolio of services that include:
- Cadence Bank’s Affordable Home Loan Program,
- Quick Decision Small Business Loan
- Cadence eChecking
- And, a drive-thru Cadence LIVE Teller interactive teller machine, a first for this historic community. The LIVE Teller allows customers to speak remotely with a teller to conduct nearly all the transactions they could complete inside the branch, yet faster and more efficiently.
Cadence Community Room
More than a bank, the Cadence Heritage Town Center branch features a Community Room where complementary financial education classes and workshops on first-time homeownership, credit, budgeting, investments and more will be held.
Classes and workshops for small business owners will further support economic development in the area. Additionally, the technology-equipped Community Room, which can seat approximately 18 people, will serve as a gathering place for community and neighborhood engagement activities.
“I’m very thankful Cadence Bank has confidence in a black community,” added Smitherman.
She noted the new branch will enhance financial literacy within the community and promote economic development.
Eula Jackson, Cadence’s Senior Vice President and Community Development Officer concluded, “Our new branch will support the needs of the underserved in two historically significant communities, giving them access to financial services that can play a critical role in inspiring financial empowerment, breaking the cycle of poverty and building stronger communities.”
