San Antonio-based Broadway National Bank is continuing its Austin expansion with a Congress Avenue branch scheduled to open next month

The branch is under construction at 506 Congress Avenue, between Fifth and Sixth streets. A bank spokeswoman said Friday it is expected to open for operation in mid-May. The bank’s Austin president, Harvey Hartenstine, couldn’t immediately be reached for comment

In 2012, Broadway National Bank officials disclosed plans to enter the Austin market by building a regional headquarters coupled with up to six local branches by 2017

The bank, which operates 39 locations, has been creeping north up the I-35 corridor during the last nine years. Starting in 2005, the bank opened branches in San Marcos, Kyle, Buda and Wimberley. In 2009, it opened them in Dripping Springs and Bee Cave

Broadway National, which reports assets of $2.6 billion, opened its regional headquarters in Midtown Medical Towers at 38th Street and Lamar Boulevard in May 2013
