Nicolet Bank's former downtown Sturgeon Bay location is now up for sale. That means 36,000 square feet of space is available for re-utilization. Nicolet recently completed a move to 236 North 4th Avenue near Jefferson Street from 217 North 4th Avenue near Kentucky Street, which had served as Baylake Bank's headquarters prior to the 2016 merger of both banks. Nicolet Bank's Senior Vice President for Commercial Banking Jamie Alberts says technological changes created more space than needed in the old downtown building.
Alberts says Nicolet Bank was approached by two parties before the former downtown site was vacated, although no offers were made. He says the building, which opened in 1982, is generating some ideas for reuse.
All Door County locations, including the now vacated downtown Sturgeon Bay building, were kept open after Nicolet and Baylake merged while two Green Bay area branches were closed.
