Truist opens branch on North Ave.

Truist Financial Corp. opened a BB&T-branded branch on North Ave. near Coppin State University. While the branch is currently branded as BB&T, it will eventually be named Truist after the integration process of the BB&T and SunTrust merger is complete. The process is expected to take anywhere from 18-24 months.

The opening of the branch is being viewed by community and business officials as part of the revitalization effort for the Coppin Heights neighborhood. The branch is a part of a $20 million redevelopment project for the area, bringing assets such as retail, office and housing space to the community.
