Crestar Bank was a regional bank headquartered in Richmond, Virginia with branches throughout Virginia and in Maryland. The bank was originally chartered as State Planters Bank Of Commerce And Trusts on December 8, 1865 in Richmond.
It was renamed United Virginia Bank/State Planters on February 15, 1969, and became United Virginia Bankshares, Inc. on December 15, 1971. With plans for expansion outside of the Commonwealth of Virginia, the Bank changed its name to Crestar Financial Corporation on September 1, 1987 and moved into a modern office tower it had just completed at 919 East Main Street in Richmond.
Now known as the SunTrust Center, Crestar's former headquarters, a 24 story office tower, located a block from the Virginia State Capitol in the heart of downtown Richmond is one of Richmond's premiere class "A" office buildings.
