Known as the ONE FNB building, the ground breaking event marks the beginning of construction after FNB funded phase one of the Second Avenue Development project. The new 7710m² headquarters will house all FNB and WesBank business units in Bloemfontein, adding a striking feature to the city's skyline.

"We are delighted to start the development of our new regional offices which will enable us to better position FNB for future growth. Bloemfontein plays a significant role for FNB and the Bank is equally committed to being one of the economic catalysts in the city and the province, by enabling economic growth as well as job creation," said Wayne Kriel, FNB Business Regional Head: Free State.

FNB's commitment to the city was lauded by the Executive Mayor of the Mangaung Metro Municipality, Honourable, Thabo Manyoni. "We have committed to partnering with the private sector in order to fast track infrastructure development and also to contribute towards social upliftment. Mangaung is one of the key economic hubs in South Africa and this investment further attests to the potential and opportunity presented by the city."

Designed by Bomax Architects the ONE FNB building will further entrench the brand's distinct identity in the Free State Province. The building will be equipped with contemporary design elements and 'green' eco-friendly features that maximise natural light.

"The partnership which made this project possible symbolises the value that FNB places in partnering with our clients. We are excited to be at the forefront of efforts to stimulate economic growth in Bloemfontein and the Free State Province at large," concluded Kriel.
