There’s a new bank in town and it’s certainly one of the prettiest you’ll find anywhere.
It’s Allegiance Bank, which moved into what formerly was the Bank of America at the corner of St. John’s Drive and NASA Parkway in Nassau Bay and hosted its grand opening May 1, after a grand remodeling.
Allegiance Bank Chairman Steve Retzloff and CEO George Martinez joined President Frank Law in welcoming the crowd and showing everyone around the elegant new offices, designed by Karen Burgos of Design Resources International, with a little help from Law.
Nassau Bay Mayor Mark Denman and Mayor Pro-tem David Braun headed up a crowd of community leaders that included Bay Area Houston Economic Partnership President Bob Mitchell and Clear Lake Area Chamber President Cindy Harreld – all ready to welcome the new bank to the Bay Area Houston community, one of Allegiance’s 11 Houston area banking facilities.
Old timers in the area remember when the landmark bank was called Nassau Bay National Bank. All are no doubt pleased to see it is living to see another day and not turned into a service station.
