Naperville Bank and Trust brought a rather timely addition to its downtown construction project. A four-sided clock now sits at the corner of their upcoming bank and post office facility at Washington and Benton.
The clock is a replica of the kind that was popular back in the 1800’s, which designers say couldn’t be more fitting for Naperville, as the town was founded in 1831.
“We envision it as another landmark in the downtown area, almost as a meeting place before you come downtown,” said Joshua Seago, Vice President for Naperville Bank and Trust.
“With the colors, with the name of the City, with the name of the bank [and] at such a prominent intersection, we just felt it was a great spot to do it,” said Jeff Lietz, Vice President of Commercial Architecture for Charles Vincent George Architecture, Inc.
Once power is added, the clock will be ticking as crews finish the construction before the building officially opens in April.
