Sanibel Captiva Community Bank has announced the acquisition of the former Suntrust Bank building, 2406 Periwinkle Way, to serve as its main office. The bank has hired Benchmark Construction to handle renovations on the building that will start in January and estimated to be completed in September.

The bank sold its main branch, 2475 Library Way, to the City of Sanibel for the new senior center, which hosts the Center 4 Life program operated by the Sanibel Recreation Department. In addition, the building will house administration offices for Community Housing and Resources, a nonprofit organization that provides affordable housing for families and individuals who work and serve the community.

“We are excited to move our main office to Periwinkle Way and offer a more convenient location for our customers,” said Craig Albert, Sanibel Captiva Community Bank president and chief executive officer. “What’s even more exciting for us is to be able to help the community by providing Sanibel seniors a larger location to gather.”
