WAUKESHA ó Nine months after receiving final site plan
approval from the Plan Commission, Summit Credit Union
has confirmed that it still plans to construct a
3,900-square-foot branch at the site of the
long-shuttered Sonic drive-thru at Moreland Boulevard
and Springdale Road.
Jeremy Eppler, vice president of risk management and
facilities for the credit union, said this week that
construction of the new branch would likely start
sometime in the late spring or early summer.
The branch will be Summitís second in Waukesha. Its
other branch is at 1103 Spring City Lane, near The
Shoppes at Fox River.
Under the plan approved by commissioners in April, the
existing Sonic drive-thru would be demolished, replaced
by a new building. The structure would have a
drive-thru, three covered aisles for teller service and
The proposed architecture for the building is slated to
be similar in style to other Summit Credit Unions in the
area, using angled roof lines, lots of glass, dark gray
brick, and metal panels.
Sonic closed in August 2016.
The property around the building has recently been used
for vehicle storage by Infiniti Milwaukee, which is
located down the road from the defunct eatery.
