On Jan. 12, the Fort Worth City Council approved the rezoning of a portion of West Seventh Street to accommodate the construction of American National Bank and Trust. The bank has plans to build a two story, 12,000 square-foot building at 1500 West Seventh St., but the exact address could change, according to Michael Winfrey, senior vice president at American National Bank and Trust.
The West Seventh location will be American National Bank and Trust’s first bank location in Fort Worth. The bank, whose main branch is in Wichita Falls, has a loan production office on West Fifth Street that will move to West Seventh once the new bank is built.
Construction begins in May, and the bank is expected to open July 2017. Komatsu Architecture is the architect for the project. Muckleroy and Falls is serving as contractor.
“Fort Worth is an absolute fit for our culture, vision and values,” Winfrey said. “We look forward to being a trusted financial partner to the Fort Worth community throughout its bright future.”
American National Bank and Trust will occupy the same street as another bank of similar name — American National Bank of Texas, located at 2720 West Seventh St.
