Sunrise breaks ground on Wabash Ave.
On June 6, Sunrise Banks broke ground for the Sunrise Banks Holding Co. building at 2515 Wabash Ave., which is part of the newly labeled Innovation District in St. Paul. The projected opening of the building, located just east of Highway 280 and north of I-94, is January 2017. The 57,000-square-foot building will house the 100 Holding Co. employees and have room for 100 more. Sunrise has four bank branches in St. Paul—including 2171 University Ave. and 2300 Como Ave.—and two in Minneapolis.
