The groundbreaking of Kearny Bank’s new Ridge Road location was covered by NJ Business.
Kearny Bank recently broke ground on an entirely new building that will eventually replace its current North Arlington branch office.
The new structure will be built in what is now a parking lot and upon completion, the older building will be razed to make way for parking.
Kearny Bank has been conducting business in North Arlington for about 130 years and opened its first borough office in the late 1880s.
The new Kearny Bank facility will provide about 4,000 square feet of public space, including a 17-foot ceiling specially designed to flood the lobby with natural light.
The groundbreaking – complete with ceremonial shovels, hardhats, and the symbolic first turning of soil on the site – was attended by North Arlington Mayor Joseph Bianchi, several council members, and Kearny Bank executives and staff.
