The Charleston Tech Center branch is conveniently located on the downtown Charleston peninsula at the intersection of Interstate 26 and Highway 17 Crosstown with easy access for intown and surrounding customers to utilize United’s services and personalized banking solutions. This is United’s fifth location in the Charleston metro area.
“We are thrilled to expand our ability to serve customers in downtown Charleston at one of the most accessible office buildings in the area,” said Dixon Woodward, South Carolina State President for United Community Bank. “Our team has done a tremendous job growing our operations in the area and we look forward to continuing to grow our presence throughout the Lowcountry.”
The new Charleston Tech branch will not feature a drive-thru but instead will house an ITM that offers customers enhanced technology with a personalized touch by providing access to speak with a live banker. Customers can make many of the same transactions as they would inside a branch including deposits, withdrawals, and transfers. The ITM extends branch hours until 6 p.m. on weekdays and until noon on Saturdays, providing flexibility beyond normal banking hours.
The branch will be the first downtown location for United. The bank also has locations in Summerville, West Ashley, and Mount Pleasant.
