Tompkins Financial Corporation’s new seven-story Ithaca headquarters is one of largest new commercial buildings in downtown Ithaca. Designed by HOLT Architects, the 110,000 sf landmark building justly represents Tompkins’ strong brand and seamlessly integrates with Ithaca’s established downtown environment.
“One of the greatest challenges in designing this building was to capture the essence of 180 years of banking tradition in a state-of-the-art banking facility” states Design Principal, Steve Hugo.
“The new Tompkins Financial building looks like it has been part of our urban landscape for some time. This is the ultimate compliment for a new design and highlights the commitment of Tompkins Financial and their architect – HOLT Architects – to honoring and respecting the community and downtown.” – Gary Ferguson, Executive Director, Downtown Ithaca Alliance
The facility houses a ground floor retail bank, as well as offices, conference rooms, training rooms, and employee lounge spaces for its 300 employees. Tompkins Financial’s official grand opening was held on June 20th of this year, with news coverage from the Ithaca Voice.
