The new Community First Building will be three-story, featuring a modern layout, 15,000 square feet of floor space, and will include a drive-thru teller station. The building will replace the current Hagåtña Member Service Center location and will serve as the headquarters for Community First administration, human resources, risk, compliance, call center, and internal audit departments.

The Community First Building was designed by Architects Laguana LLC and will be constructed by Canton Construction Corporation. The expected completion date is January 2023.

“Today, with the turning of the earth, our new facility will bridge our almost 60 years of tradition and community service history with the technology-driven future of the company,” said Gerry Cruz, President & CEO of Community First.

“This project reflects our continued commitment to providing financial solutions to our island and community,” said Perry Taitano, Community First chairman of the board. “We take pride in the quality of service provided to our members and look forward to welcoming them to our new home in 2023.”
