Umpqua Bank plans a flagship branch in downtown San Jose through a lease of space on Santa Clara Street near Almaden Boulevard.
The new location will provide community banking, home lending and commercial banking services.
Umpqua leased 6,900 square feet on two floors at 225 W. Santa Clara St. The build-out of the space should be complete during the January-March period of 2013.
The bank's new location in San Jose will include Umpqua's store design on the ground floor, including an interactive Discover Wall showcasing information about financial tools, products and community events; a computer cafe and free Wi-Fi; and a phone with a direct line to the bank's CEO.
