BROOKFIELD — Landmark Credit Union is looking to relocate its company headquarters from New Berlin to a 19.5-acre site on Executive Drive in Brookfield, although it will maintain a strong presence in New Berlin.

The plans will be discussed at Monday’s Brookfield Plan Commission meeting. They call for the construction of a 150,000-squarefoot to 160,000-square-foot office building at 555 S. Executive Drive that would include the company’s home office, as well as training facilities. The site, which contains a building that would be torn down, also offers the possibility for future expansion, according to Friday’s announcement.

“This new headquarters is a direct reflection of our great Landmark Credit Union team and our wonderful growing membership base,” said Jay Magulski, president and chief executive officer, in a statement. “For 85 years we have consistently helped our members meet their everyday financial needs and achieve their long-term financial goals. As we look to the future, we know we need a home for our dedicated associates that can grow with us.”

Landmark Credit Union is working with Eppstein Uhen Architects to explore possible designs for the site that maximize the location’s potential, which can be seen from the Interstate 94 corridor.

“We look forward to working with Landmark Credit Union on this project and ultimately to welcoming them to the city of Brookfield,” said Mayor Steven Ponto in a statement. “Landmark’s commitment not only to serving their members, but to creating strong, healthy communities makes them a neighbor Brookfield can be proud to have as part of our city.”

According to the announcement, the development of the new facility would focus on providing a modern workplace that promotes collaboration and would be expandable to meet the credit union’s future needs.

The initial plans for the new headquarters anticipated more than 300 employees will relocate to it from the existing administrative office location in the Westridge Business Park in New Berlin and other local facilities.

Landmark will also continue to maintain a strong presence in the New Berlin community from its three-story, 35,000-square-foot office building near the corner of South Moorland Road and West Cleveland Avenue. This location includes a full-service branch with multiple drive-up lanes, Landmark’s Business Lending team, Landmark Investment Center team members, and a full complement of mortgage professionals who can assist members with all their mortgage needs.
