First National Bank of Omaha is building its second Council Bluffs office on the south side of Broadway at 25th Street, in a block anchored by a Hy-Vee supermarket.
The new branch, due to open in late October just east of Thomas Jefferson High School, will have the same design as First National offices opened in recent years at 50th Street and Ames Avenue and at 158th Street and Giles Road, the Omaha bank said.
Hy-Vee also owns property just south of the bank site. Pat Hensley, assistant vice president of operations for Hy-Vee, said the land is being used for employee parking and no decision has been made on other possible uses.
The new bank office will be First National's 93rd location and the 37th in Omaha, Lincoln, Council Bluffs and Glenwood, Iowa. — Steve Jordon
