Scott Credit Union marks the opening of new Ballpark Village location with ribbon cutting

EDWARDSVILLE, IL (October 1, 2020) — Scott Credit Union officially celebrated the opening of its new branch in Ballpark Village with a ceremonial ribbon cutting on Monday.

Located at the base of The PwC Pennant Building at the corner of Eighth Street and Cardinal Way, Scott Credit Union is the first retail tenant to join the new office building which opened in Q4 of 2019 as part of the second phase expansion of Ballpark Village.

“We are pleased to officially mark the opening of our first branch in downtown St. Louis,” Scott Credit Union President & CEO Frank Padak said during the ceremony. “We are even more excited to be part of Ballpark Village and to expand our partnership with the St. Louis Cardinals.”

The 1,200-square-foot location places Scott Credit Union in the heart of one of the most unique developments in professional sports. The Scott Credit Union Ballpark Village location is a full-service branch and is equipped with a walk-up ATM that is available from outside the branch during off hours. The location also features office space to allow staff to meet with members when they need consultation about home loans or investments.

“We’re incredibly excited to announce Scott Credit Union’s opening and welcome them to Ballpark Village,” said Mike LaMartina, Chief Revenue Officer for Ballpark Village. “Scott Credit Union will be a great new amenity for our office workers, residents and visitors to Ballpark Village.”

The branch’s design and visibility will go a long way to creating brand awareness for Scott Credit Union in the Missouri market. The Ballpark Village location is a high-tech marketing showcase with a digital display wall, Interactive Teller Machines and conversation spaces. The location features friendly and energetic Member Engagement Specialists to assist members with their banking needs.

“We are proud to be part of this neighborhood and all of the action it will bring to downtown St. Louis,” Padak added. “We are looking forward to serving the people who live and work here, as well as those visiting for an event in the future.”

The neighborhood’s Phase Two expansion includes the One Cardinal Way residential tower which opened Aug. 1. The expansion of Ballpark Village has added more than 700,000 square feet of dining, entertainment, hotel, office, residential, retail and lifestyle amenities to downtown St. Louis.
