Hyperion Bank is the first community bank to locate in an urban section of Philadelphia in more than 20 years, opening its doors in November of 2006 in the Northern Liberties area, about a mile and a half north of the Liberty Bell. The Bank chose this area because of its extensive residential redevelopment, expanding small businesses and deep-rooted neighborhood residents.

In addition to bringing a new urban banking center to the neighborhood, Hyperion Bank has also brought urban revitalization. Housed in a stunning red brick building that over a century ago was Philadelphia's Eighth National Bank, our initial branch and corporate headquarters, located at the northeast corner of Second Street and Girard Avenue, was a vacant warehouse for the last couple of decades. Now, the 135 year old bank building has been restored to its original 1871 grandeur, has received an award from the Preservation Alliance for Greater Philadelphia and is a signature footprint in the area's urban revitalization.

Hyperion Bank is dedicated to being an integral part of the fabric of the community by providing the best possible service and a broad range of products to both consumers and businesses. The Bank works closely with several local non-profit organizations, all working hard to continue improving the city's neighborhoods.
