BMO Harris Bank's new Sherman Park branch opens
Seems like just yesterday we squeezed under a tent to escape the rain and celebrate the groundbreaking on a new BMO Harris Bank branch in Sherman Park to replace the old one, which had been damaged in unrest the previous summer.
That's because it practically was. Mayor Tom Barrett and Ald. Khalif Rainey joined officials from BMO Harris Bank and developer Compass Properties on May 19 to ceremonially break ground on a new "smart" bank branch in the Sherman Park neighborhood.
Now, the branch, at 3637 W. Fond du Lac Ave., is open, right across the street from its predecessor. At the earlier groundbreaking, that building was said to be slated to become a wellness incubator, spearheaded by The Juice Kitchen's JoAnne Johnson-Sabir and Fix Development's Juli Kaufmann.
