The original building built in 1962 has been rebuilt into a three-story, mixed-use business center and bank branch.
Conroe, Texas (February 23, 2022) – Woodforest National Bank® (“Woodforest”) is excited to announce its newly-constructed, mixed-use business center and bank branch located in historic downtown Conroe at 400 West Davis officially opened to the public on Monday, February 14.
Woodforest occupies 3,993 square feet of the 32,800-square-foot building located in a designated Opportunity Zone. The bank’s full-service retail branch anchors the first floor, and the second floor, still under construction, will house its Commercial Banking Team. Woodforest is eager to host a community celebration in May 2022 once construction is complete in April.
“I am so thankful Woodforest had the vision to see what downtown Conroe had to offer and invested in our downtown roots and future,” said Conroe Mayor Jody Czajkoski. “This beautiful, mixed-used development in Downtown Conroe is truly a blessing and great addition that fits right in with our downtown plan. We appreciate Woodforest’s commitment to Conroe and for bringing this brand new Class A office and retail space to downtown. We are extremely thankful that they call Conroe home.”
Woodforest National Bank President and CEO Jay Dreibelbis added, “As a longtime Conroe resident, I am proud of this beautiful new facility. At Woodforest, we are excited about what the future holds for Conroe and remain committed to providing the same great in-person service our customers expect from us. Our business center will also support emerging commerce, which helps revitalize our downtown area.”
This location has a rich history in Conroe. Built in 1962, the old Woodforest building became home to Woodforest’s first branch in Conroe. Last December, a ground-breaking ceremony with community leaders took place to celebrate the new complex’s construction and renovation.
The new Woodforest complex is conveniently located within walking distance from the Montgomery County Courthouse, Conroe’s City Hall, the Conroe/Lake Conroe Chamber, and all of the businesses on the downtown Conroe square.
Leasing interest remains strong as the building offers the only Class A office/retail space in downtown Conroe, and the bank is currently working with multiple interested parties. For those who are interested in leasing space in this amazing complex, please contact Jeff Beard of SVN | J. Beard Real Estate – Greater Houston for details and to schedule a tour at (281) 367-2220 x102.

About Our Involvement with this Project
The Conroe Industrial Development Corporation (CIDC) approved a grant assisting demolition of the existing Woodforest National Bank building in downtown. By demolishing the older building, Woodforest was able to build a modern mixed-use building on the existing property. This development is part of the City's and Conroe Economic Development Council's (CEDC) goal to make downtown Conroe a more active, urban setting. Creative projects like this one will help Conroe achieve the goal!
