Wells Fargo opening up a Silver Lake branch next to new Whole Foods store

Storefront ReportSILVER LAKE — Wells Fargo Bank is planning to open a branch later this year in the same Glendale Boulevard shopping center where Whole Foods its preparing to open the first of its lower-cost markets.

“We will be opening a new Wells Fargo store this year at the location” in Silver Lake, said company spokeswoman Fabiola Brenes-Gonzalez in an email.  She had no further details at this time.

Wells Fargo operates branches in Atwater Village, Los Feliz and Downtown L.A. but not in Silver Lake or Echo Park, where a free-standing branch on Sunset Boulevard closed during the 1990s.

The new Wells Fargo branch will  become part of a banker’s row on this stretch of Glendale Boulevard, where Bank of America, Citibank and East West Bank already operate offices in the 2400 and 2500 blocks of Glendale.

Wells Fargo will be one of the new tenants to move into the shopping center where Whole Foods plans to open a new store,  known as 365 by Whole Foods,  this fall in the space once occupied by a Ralphs market.

What other new tenants will move into the shopping center, where a CVS Pharmacy, Starbucks and a few other shops currently operate? One rumored new tenant is a Chipotle Mexican Grill. The Eastsider has contacted Chipotle several times to find out if that’s the case but the chain restaurant has not responded.

  1. In the meantime, I’ve seen dozens and dozens of Silver Lake residents move away from a bank into a credit union. I invite one of the banks that destroyed our economy in 2008 to do their worst. I’ll still be shopping at the 365, but certainly not with their ill-gotten money.

  2. It’s strange to read of new bank locations as their physical roles has become decreasingly significant… I can’t remember the last time I went to a bank, and like Ashley many of my friends have moved on to CUs, smaller banks or even exclusive online banks… Capital One has started to convert their banks into Cafes.

    • Right?!?! Im pretty sure they want to open a branch here in Silver Lake because of the housing market being on an upswing. Or at the tail ed of one anyway. They want to get the last remaining mortgage loans in the area.

  3. Chipotle sounds good to me! More awesome new amenities in this location please!
