The first full-service bank to open in Wynwood in more than 20 years is designed to fit in with the burgeoning Miami neighborhood’s art and nightlife scenes.

C1 Bank’s new branch in the area is adorned with artwork from Andy Warhol and Keith Haring and designed with modular conference pods and LED-lit seating areas, the Miami Herald reported. When the business day ends, the 3,700-square-foot building can be used as an entertainment space, as the bank installed a stainless steel catering kitchen and designed a streetfront glass wall that opens to the sidewalk. The bank paid $2.9 million for the two-property site and spent another $1 million on the branch’s interiors.

The Wynwood branch is part of a South Florida growth strategy for C1, which previously had a temporary office for loan production in the Brickell area. The bank has acquired buildings in Coral Gables and Doral with plans to open those branches this summer. [Miami Herald]Eric Kalis
