Unitus Community Credit Union to open Unitus Business Center-Tigard

New distributed administrative network center to open on April 29, 2024, with ribbon cutting ceremony

TIGARD, OR (April 24, 2024)Unitus Community Credit Union will open its new Distributed Administrative  Network Center on April 29, 2024. The Unitus Business Center (UBC)-Tigard is located at 7632 SW Durham  Road, Tigard, Oregon 97224. The credit union is vacating its current leased location at 1300 SW 6th Avenue in  Downtown Portland and transitioning operations to multiple locations, including UBC-Tigard. Unitus will  welcome employees into the new facility with a ribbon cutting ceremony beginning at 9:00 a.m. 

“After more than two years of planning and programming the new facility, we are thrilled to welcome  employees to the new Unitus Business Center-Tigard,” explained Steven Stapp, President and CEO of Unitus  Community Credit Union. “We are grateful for the excellent partners who helped build out our new location,  taking our ideas and making them a reality. Every aspect of UBC-Tigard was engineered with sustainability in  mind.” 

Momentum, Inc., which specializes in design-build for credit unions, led the strategy, design, and construction  of the new UBC-Tigard. The company partnered with Unitus leaders to efficiently program the space to include  collaboration and focus areas, activity-based spaces, and meeting rooms, all while the building remained open  for current tenants. 

UBC-Tigard is strategically located to reduce commute and environmental impacts for Unitus staff. The facility  is home to five acres of dedicated wetlands to help offset the credit union’s footprint. The building features  operational systems that are environmentally friendly and controlled onsite, which will enhance business  continuity efforts. UBC-Tigard will better serve Unitus’ operational needs and support remote, hybrid, and in office work. Staff will also have access to a dedicated outdoor recreation area that will feature pickleball and  bocce ball courts. 

Unitus will no longer occupy Unitus Plaza in downtown Portland, effective May 1, 2024. The branch and ATM at  that location will close permanently at the close of business on April 30, 2024. A new Downtown Portland  Unitus branch will open at a later date. 

“This move addresses the changing needs of our organization and creates long-term value for our  membership by reducing overall operating costs,” said Mr. Stapp. “We are looking forward to connecting with  our new neighbors and community partners as we work out of UBC-Tigard.” 

Members of the media interested in attending the UBC-Tigard ribbon cutting ceremony must register with  Autumn Foster, Marketing Communications Specialist. Unitus plans to host a grand opening event at UBC Tigard later this year.
