A Northern Virginia bank officially has another fox den in Richmond.
Middleburg Bank, whose mascot is a fox named Mosby, last month opened its second branch in the Richmond market in the heart of the Libbie and Grove retail area.
The bank had eyed the location, a former Wachovia/Wells Fargo branch, since last summer.
It is leasing the 3,000-square-foot property at 315 Libbie Ave. from Neville-Berkeley Properties LLC. Austin Joy of commercial real estate firm Spotts & Carneal manages the property. Wells Fargo vacated the space in December 2011.
Middleburg’s first local branch opened downtown in November 2011 at 821 E. Main St., in the former Tredegar Trust building. Middleburg has owned that building for some time, as it has been home to its Middleburg Trust subsidiary.
Middleburg Bank is based in Middleburg, Va., just west of Washington. The bank was founded in 1924. Its holding company was created in 1993 and has about $1 billion in assets.
The bank has 13 branches, mostly in the northern part of the state and one in Williamsburg, in addition to its two Richmond locations.
