The Savings Bank of Danbury wants to build a "signature" branch near the south end of New Milford.

The bank is proposing to build a 4,600-square-foot branch with drive through capability at 314 Danbury Road (Route 7 South) and 60 Sullivan Court.

New Milford's Zoning Commission is studying the plan.

The variegated, brick-facade structure with limestone frieze would be sited along Sullivan Road on property where McNally's restaurant once was, just south of the Osborne property.

Iconic-style columns would stand to a seven-foot wide overhang from the two-story lobby, explained architect George J. Perham, a principal in Antinozzi Associates.

"The bank wants a prominent building at this signature site at the southern entrance to the town," Mr. Perham said.

Landscaping of the plaza area at the proposed bank is being designed by Didona Associates of Danbury.

The Savings Bank of Danbury has had a presence in New Milford for 20 years with a branch in the Big Y plaza at 1 Kent Road (Route 7 North).

Nicholas J. Gazetos, executive vice president of the Savings Bank of Danbury, is the chairman of New Milford's Economic Development Corporation.
