Rivermark Credit Union has upped its 'green cred.'
Recently BikePortland.org, which covers the Portland bike scene, shared with followers the eco-conscious choices that will be available at the $490 million credit union's new green Hawthorne branch including walk-up teller station and covered bike parking.
The new 8,700-square-foot building will be located adjacent to the existing branch in Portland, which will remain open during construction. Once the new branch opens the existing branch will be demolished and a majority of it recycled. The new building will incorporate green building practices, such as a partial green roof to save energy and reduce storm water runoff. The branch will also feature an exterior living wall that in time will be covered with vegetation.
