News Release –

ITHACA, NY (December 6, 2023) – The official ribbon was cut and Tompkins Community Bank welcomed customers, alongside Syracuse Mayor Ben Walsh, to its newest City Center branch at 400 S. Salina Street, Syracuse, New York. The space, Tompkins’ second location in Syracuse, aims to provide clients with comprehensive services for all their banking and financial needs.  

In addition to traditional branch services, the new 6,000-square-foot financial center will support the community through commercial banking, cash management, residential mortgage lending, wealth management and trust services, commercial and personal lines insurance, employee benefits, and more.  

“Investing in our communities and keeping them vibrant, while providing our customers with top-of-the-line services in the places where they work and live, has always been at the heart of our business,” said Johanna Anderson, president, Tompkins’ Central New York market. “After seeing our Central New York clients’ needs grow, it was important for us to expand here in downtown Syracuse. We’re proud to be part of the revitalization happening in City Center and to celebrate the many businesses who, like us, believe in the future of Syracuse.” 

Formerly Sibley Department Store, the downtown-Syracuse property remained vacant for many years before being transformed into an office complex. Demonstrating a true commitment to community growth, Tompkins Community Bank helped finance the redevelopment of the entire building, working alongside Jeremy and Gary Thurston, owners of Haynor Hoyt Company. Neighboring tenants include II (formerly Huntington Ingalls Industries), Hayner Hoyt and CXtech.
