The full-service branch will be located at 107 First Citizens Way, at the corner of Nexton Parkway and Cross Park Drive in Summerville. Along with a staffed lobby, the bank will provide drive-through and ATM services, parking and a night depository, Nexton said.
Southern Coastal Area Executive Reeves Skeen said the Nexton addition will play a key part in First Citizens’ network because it shows the bank is committed long-term to its clients and the area.
“It will give our customers even greater access to our bank at a prominent and growing location,” he said. “We are excited about continuing to deliver on our Forever First promise of quality, stability and exceptional service at this new facility for many years to come.”
First Citizens operates in 20 branches in the greater Charleston area and 130 locations across the state. The bank plans to make a monetary gift to Berkeley Citizens to help fund the installation of a sprinkler system at the nonprofit’s group home, which serves intellectually and developmentally disabled people in the area.
“We are thrilled to welcome First Citizens Bank to our Nexton family as we continue to make significant strides in thoughtfully growing the community’s business services,” Nexton’s VP of Operations Brent Gibadlo said. “Nexton’s plan encourages more efficient living by blending all of life’s essential ingredients into one sustainable community, and we are delighted to offer First Citizens’ banking services to our residents and visitors.”
Nexton also includes four residential villages, three apartment communities, 300,000 square feet of office space, schools, trails, green space and multiple commercial nodes on the 5,000-acre development.
