GRAFTON — Cornerstone Community Bank’s outdoor concourse will undergo major changes this summer as part of a project that started on June 23 and is expected to continue for six to eight weeks.

The construction will improve parking and traffic flow for customers and employees of the bank, which is located at 2090 Wisconsin Ave.

“While a short-term inconvenience, the final result will allow us to serve our customers better,” said Paul Foy, president of Cornerstone Community Bank. “The bank will remain open during construction.”

The project is the second phase of a larger project, which was launched with the purchase of the property north of the bank building last year. Cornerstone’s growth in commercial and residential lending required a need for more office space and parking for its support staff. That building was renovated this past fall and houses administrative employees. The second phase will beautify the property and bridge the campus together, Foy said.

Highlights of the project include:

■ Demolition of the 2072 Wisconsin Ave. building

■ Installation of new sewer lines to the new office building

■ Expanded and improved bank parking

■ New curbs and asphalt

■ New landscaping

■ Construction of the Cornerstone pavilion “We are really excited about the construction of the pavilion,” Foy said. “It will be the centerpiece of our campus, built in the shape of the Cornerstone logo. We are hoping nonprofit groups will take advantage of this location to host brat fry fundraisers, wreath sales, etc.”

Cornerstone Community bank is an independent family-owned and operated bank.

Cornerstone has full-service offices in Grafton, Fox Point and Menomonee Falls.
