The Final Touches on Pioneer Plaza

First Columbia’s team and Pioneer Bank is putting the last few touches on the new headquarters near the corner of Wolf and Albany Shaker roads in Colonie, New York.

The bank has been investing heavily in the new headquarters and its branch network to give Pioneer a more regional presence. Employees are expected to move in at the end of August. The building will consist of a four-story, 60,000-square-foot office building that will feature office and retail.

The Pioneer Headquarters is a prime example of First Columbia’s vision and expertise in Development and our commitment to making sure a business’s building and location enhances in profitability.

Located on 2nd Street in downtown Troy, Pioneer was challenged to grow due to space constraints, transportation deficiencies, no visibility, and separate offices. Working with our team, we quickly
identified a strategic location at one of the area’s busiest interchanges at Wolf Road and Albany Shaker Road, perfect for a bank looking for convenience.

“We designed a striking building, incorporating digital LED messaging in the architecture to change a 150 yea old company’s image. We brought together all it’s employees under one roof, created dynamic work environment for its workforce, and delivered easy identification and access for it’s visitors and customers. The results are remarkable said First Columbia’s Kevin Bette” In just a few short months from opening, business is booming and Pioneer is on it’s way to it’s best year ever.
