CCU NC Regional HQ Rendering
Corning Credit Union is scheduled to break ground this spring on a 43,000 square foot regional headquarters building in Wilmington.

Corning Credit Union (CCU) is pleased to announce plans to build a regional headquarters on 17th Street Extension in Wilmington.

The 43,000 square foot building will replace the existing CCU branch in Fulton Station and will house a full array of member service departments on the first floor including deposit accounts, wealth management, and consumer, business, and mortgage lending. Support offices will be located on the second and third floors. Construction is scheduled to begin this spring and is expected to take approximately one year to complete.

"We are dedicated to continued growth in southeastern North Carolina and this regional headquarters will allow us to better serve our more than 20,000 members who live and work in the Cape Fear region," said Gary Grinnell, President and CEO. "We are excited to make this significant investment in the community where more than 40 of our employees live and work."

While the building is designed to meet current needs, it is also a key component of the Credit Union's growth plans. Over the next 5 years, CCU anticipates adding 50-100 jobs in the area; most of which will be professional roles needed to support CCU's more than 107,000 members throughout the country.

Becker Morgan Group is the architect and McKinley Building Corporation has been selected as the general contractor for the project.

CCU currently operates four branches in the greater Wilmington area. In addition to the existing 17th Street Extension branch, locations include branches on Racine Drive in Wilmington, Market Street in Porters Neck, and Olde Regent Way in Leland.

Membership at CCU is open to anyone who lives, works, worships, or attends school in the City of Wilmington, the Brunswick County area, and a portion of Pender County. Learn more here.
