New Chase Bank to Open in McLean by End of Year

The squat brick building at 1300 Chain Bridge Road is about to become a bank once again.

Renovations are underway to turn the brick building into a JP Morgan Chase Bank.

The location had previously been a drive-through Wachovia, then a Wells Fargo, but has sat empty for at least a year.

The bank is aiming for an opening sometime in the fall but has no more specific date ready yet.

Construction crews are still at work at the project — which has a largely gutted interior — and permits in the window say work will involve installing new air devices and ductworks.

It will be the only Chase bank in McLean but far from the only bank. There are roughly 17 banks currently scattered around downtown McLean, possibly because studies say McLean residents tend to be very wealthy and frugal.
