As of June 15, FineMark Bank started offering on-site banking services to residents, employees, and the public at Shell Point Retirement Community.

The $300,000 renovation included upgrading the interior décor and enlarging the lobby area so that it would be more inviting and spacious for banking clients. The interior designer, Connie Davidson from Robb & Stucky, created an “old Florida” feel by commissioning artist Christine Adele Moore to paint a mural depicting a Florida wetlands area as a focal point on one wall. This theme was also incorporated in the furnishings and finishes used throughout the bank’s new interior to create a resort-like atmosphere which utilized medium wood tones, combined with rattan and bamboo accents, and offset by cool contemporary furnishings and accessories.
