Prominent Three-Story 16,000-square-foot Facility will also Become New Corporate HQ

Curious passers-by in the Old Mill shopping area may have noticed a new building taking shape appearing to tower over the mall’s multi-plex cinema from a prominent perch on a bluff.

It will in fact be the new corporate headquarters for Mid Oregon Credit Union and eighth full-service branch. Located at 557 SW Bluff Drive, the three-story 15,945-square-foot building is expected to be completed by early 2025.

“Mid Oregon has been serving the Central Oregon community for 66 years, and what better way to continue to do so than by building a new state-of-the-art facility,” said Kevin Cole, president and CEO of Mid Oregon.“We are excited about the positive impact our new facility will have in helping members meet their financial needs and achieve their dreams.”

Mid Oregon partnered with Steele Associates Architects and SunWest Builders for the building, which will feature a full-service branch, drive-thru teller, and ATM lanes on the ground floor. As part of the new facility, Mid Oregon’s executive leadership, wealth management, commercial services, and several back-office departments will relocate, providing much-needed space for the credit union’s growing staff of 150.

The planned design will feature mass-timber construction, with materials from Woodworks Innovation Network, honoring the timber-based history of the Old Mill District and the broader Bend community. It will provide amenities to support a modern office culture, including extensive windows for access to natural light, designated staff engagement/break areas, conference rooms, bike lockers and more. “This project would not be possible without the support of the Central Oregon community and our loyal members,” said Cole.

“We call it our world headquarters as our world is entirely in Oregon,” Kyle Frick, VP of Marketing and Community Relations, added. “As well as being a full-service branch, the building will also house the executive team, accounting, human resources, wealth management and business services. It will really be an all-in-one-stop shop!”
