Bank’s Administrative Office Building Remains in South Windsor
William (Bill) H. W. Crawford, IV, President and Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Rockville Bank and Rockville Financial, Inc. (NASDAQ Global Select Market "RCKB") today announced that Rockville Bank plans to lease 22,000 square feet of office space at 45 Glastonbury Blvd. in Glastonbury, Conn. The new space will complement the Bank’s 30,000-square-feet at its Administrative Offices at 1645 Ellington Road in South Windsor, Conn.
“Rockville Bank is continuing to expand,” explains Crawford. “As a result, we have fully utilized all 30,000 square feet of our administrative offices in South Windsor and we simply need more space. This additional Glastonbury space was our most cost-effective and expedient option to accommodate our increasing need for space. We plan to occupy this space in the second quarter of 2012.”
“Rockville Bank’s Administrative Office building opened in 2001 in South Windsor, and will continue to be located there,” notes Crawford. Rockville Bank already operates two branches in Glastonbury at 1009 Hebron Avenue - The Shops at Addison Village, and at 902 Main Street in South Glastonbury. The Bank operates three branches in South Windsor, including a full-service office on the first floor of the Administrative Building. “South Windsor and Glastonbury are two great markets for us. We remain focused on our mission of being “Connecticut's Best Community Bank" in every town and community in which we operate,” Crawford states.
