Arvest Bank celebrated the announcement of their new Fayetteville, Ark. branch location with a ceremonial groundbreaking on December 20, 2012. Elected officials, community leaders and Arvest Bank associates gathered that morning to welcome the start of construction for the branch bank at 2389 North College Avenue. The branch is estimated to be completed sometime in October 2013.

“We are so happy to see work begin on our new location,” said Donny Story, President of Arvest Bank in Fayetteville. “Our customers and associates will appreciate the much needed space and added convenience. We simply outgrew the old location.”

The new branch will replace the Arvest branch at 1947 North College Avenue. That building, then a McIlroy Bank, first opened on December 10, 1962, and contained the first drive-through window in Fayetteville. It was last renovated and expanded in 1994 with 3,150 square feet. Arvest Bank acquired McIlroy Bank in 1986. 

The Township branch will have approximately 6,250 square feet when completed. Designed by Wittenberg, Delony and Davidson Architects, it is being constructed to U.S. Green Building Council’s Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design standards. Among the features designed into the building are LED lighting, extensive use of recycled materials, reflective roofing materials, and drought-tolerant native landscape design.

CDI Contractors is the construction company for this project. Grey Rock, HSA Engineers and Engineering Consultants Inc. are the engineering firms.
