We’ve reported on the proliferation of financial institutions along Capitol Hill’s main commercial drag on Broadway. The commercial boulevard takes a jog at First Hill where Friday morning a new bank is celebrating its opening in the neighborhood.
Along with cutting the opening ribbon, Chase officials will be handing over a $75,000 donation to nonprofit developer Capitol Hill Housing. Perhaps CHH will use the newfangled new Chase ATM documented in the announcement below to receive their payment in coins.
Chase joins a recently opened Top Pot and a sandwich shop in the Coppins Well development that opened in fall 2012. In addition to the thousands of health and medical workers who populate the area, these new merchants also serve a growing residential population — with more on the way. Last summer, we reported on the opening of a new grocery store to serve First Hill’s workers — and residents.
