Seattle Credit Union continues expansion across the region | Tacoma’s Hilltop Branch

SEATTLE, WA (October 31, 2023) — Seattle Credit Union, a nearly century-old organization committed to community development and economic empowerment, announced the opening of its newest branch in Tacoma’s Hilltop neighborhood. 

Located at the base of an apartment complex on the corner of MLK Jr. Way and 9th,  Seattle Credit Union’s newest location features a financial branch as well as a financial suite.

Hilltop Branch

At the Hilltop branch, members and consumers can engage with branch experts to learn about the various products and services the credit union offers. 

Hilltop Suite 

The Hilltop financial suite offers broader lending services, and business teams can meet with clients.

Upon entry to Seattle Credit Union at Hilltop, members and guests are guided to the community-centric lounge in the middle of the space. 

 The setting was designed in the inviting style of a cozy hotel lobby or fireside café, featuring warm wood finishes, jewel-toned fabrics, and plush seating. There is a coffee bar with a large media screen and smaller cube spaces for privacy and sensitive conversations.

 Seattle Credit Union actively engaged with the Hilltop community members, local non-profits, and civic leaders to incorporate their insights and aspirations throughout the development.

 The signage and messaging throughout Hilltop pays homage to the neighborhood’s history. Imagery of people and places around the area and the broader community have been sourced from the Tacoma library and curated collections. 

 “We have always been an inclusive, inventive, and invested financial institution,” said Romero. “This close community collaboration, coupled with strategic investment from Pacific Premier Bank, has shaped Seattle Credit Union at Hilltop to serve as a cornerstone for community growth and a robust economic resource.”
