On a beautiful back-to-school morning, M&T Bank at 999 East Ridge Road cut the ribbon on their brand new re-located branch.
M&T Bank first acquired the former location, a free-standing building in the Depot Plaza, 26 years ago when the bank bought the Monroe Savings Bank branch. The relocation into the plaza is supported by an out-parcel drive thru that is connected to the branch by underground tube. Tubes travel under the parking lot in just 32 seconds.
Dan Burns, President of M&T Bank's Rochester Region, thanked local developer Angelo Ingrassia for working with M&T on this relocation project, adding that his wife is a teacher in Irondequoit --- and winking that Irondequoit can thank M&T for the Panera Bread location coming soon to occupy the bank's former out-parcel.
Irondequoit Town Supervisor Dave Seeley in turn thanked M&T Bank for being a good corporate citizen in Irondequoit, and thanked Ingrassia for leading the transformation of Depot Plaza.
Depot Plaza has been completely renovated to welcome a new grocery store with gas station, and a mix of retail and service tenants.
