ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - New Mexico’s tallest building will display the name of a credit union, breaking a pattern of banks seeking signage rights on the state’s skyscrapers.

The Albuquerque Journal reports (https://bit.ly/1jJN0ft ) that U.S. Eagle Federal Credit Union’s name will replace the Bank of Albuquerque sign on the 22-story Albuquerque Plaza building in downtown.

The building is owned by an investment group led by local businessman Jim Long. He says he’s thrilled to have U.S. Eagle FCU acquire the rights and says he’s used the credit union for nearly five decades.

U.S. Eagle President and CEO Marsha Majors said in a statement that the signage rights are a unique opportunity for New Mexico’s oldest credit union.

The Bank of Albuquerque has had its name on the building since the end of 1998.
