Lakeside Bank

Lakeside Bank Holds Groundbreaking Ceremony!

On Monday, April 8, Lakeside Bank executives, board members, clients, employees and guests attended the groundbreaking ceremonies in Bridgeport on Chicago’s south side for the bank’s eighth Chicago area bank.

“All of our branches are special, but this one is particularly meaningful to Lakeside and to me, personally,” said Phil Cacciatore, Lakeside’s Chairman and CEO. “First of all, it’s April 8 and this is our eighth branch. Plus, we’re in the top 8% of all banks in the country. The symmetry is perfect.” Cacciatore went on to note, “We’re also returning to our roots. Lakeside started on the south side 53 years ago. And … my dad was born in Bridgeport. He’d be very proud of us today.”

Architectural firm Pappageorge Haymes designed the bank. International Contractors, ICI, will build it. Construction is underway.

We plan to hold a Grand Opening Party for our new Bridgeport branch in early December!
