Bank of Hawaii Reopens Renovated Main Branch in Downtown Honolulu
Wednesday, August 30, 2017
HONOLULU, HAWAII –
The grand opening of Bank of Hawaii’s Main Branch marks the bank’s fourth “Branch of Tomorrow.” The 5,307 square-foot flagship branch moves back to its location on the corner of Bishop and King streets in downtown Honolulu after 5 months of construction.
The “Branch of Tomorrow” offers a 21st-century banking experience, including easy deposit ATMs, Wi-Fi, tablets and digital screens, which pairs greater customer convenience with personal interactions. For more information, please visit www.boh.com/tomorrowbranch.
The renovation of Main Branch presents a unique design, drawn from themes of the Hawaiian voyaging canoe. Some of the special features include: a 7 ft. x 33 ft. digital wall, a Welcome Wall with a map of Honolulu, a handcrafted canoe model, bronze relief artwork; and a canoe paddle. These display features symbolize the values of the voyaging, including teamwork and navigating toward a common goal.
Bank of Hawaii’s canoe, Ulu o ka lā, unveiled in January 2016, will be on display outside of Main Branch for the public to view during the grand opening. Ulu o ka lā means “growing sun” and refers to the first light of the sun on the horizon. The canoe represents for the bank the possibilities that lie ahead as we rise to meet the opportunities of tomorrow.
Main Branch keeps it regular Monday through Friday operations:
|Address:||111 S. King Street, Honolulu HI 96813|
Monday - Thursday: 7:30 a.m. to 3 p.m.
All 22 bank employees will be transferred to the new location. Pearl City was the first branch to incorporate the new Branch of Tomorrow concept, followed by Hawaii Kai Branch in March, and Kihei Branch in June. Bank of Hawaii’s Manoa Branch is set to open in December and Pearlridge Branch in January. Bank of Hawaii has 64 branches in Hawaii. The architect for Main Branch is Ferraro Choi and Associates Ltd. and the contractor is Gateside Inc.
