Enterprise Bank & Trust is the latest company to take up residence in the Crossroads Arts District. Now open at 1737 Main Street, the 4,269-square-foot branch is the bank's first Crossroads location, located steps away from the streetcar line.

It seems like an unlikely fit for a financial institution to locate in a creative hub, but the move complements the bank's intention to attract entrepreneurs and the wealth of private businesses concentrated in the area.

In fact, step inside the bank and you'll an environment similar to a retail store. It's an entirely new concept for Enterprise, with a wide open floor plan and modern, high-top work tables. Interactive learning stations let customers take to iPads to learn how various products can add value to their businesses.

The branch features an exterior sculpture by Kansas City artist James Woodfill, and an interior art gallery with rotating work from local artists through ArtsKC. Currently on display is a number of layered abstract collages and patterns on wood, metal and fabric by local artist Katrina Revenaugh.

Botwin Commercial Development owns the building, while Clockwork Architecture + Design served as architect and Centric Projects as general contractor.
