Hancock Bank will officially open a new financial center in the New Orleans Central Business District at 10 a.m. Friday.

The center will be located at 203 Carondelet Street and Common Street on the first floor of the historic Maritime Building.

Hancock Bank market president Don Zornman said Labarre Architects and renovation contractor Woodward Design+Build worked to preserve the architectural integrity of the Maritime Building during installation of the 6,800 square-foot branch. Hancock salvaged an original granite floor for the Carondelet Street foyer and a marble archway for the associates’ break room. Designers also considered the building’s 14-foot-plus ceilings and unusually large windows in developing the branch layout and interior aesthetics.
