Bank of Georgetown Branch Coming to U Street

Well, it’s not the most exciting development but I also like to note when storefronts get a new tenant. The former sales offices in the Ellington Building that has been papered over for a while (on U St, NW between 13th and 14th) is going to become a Bank of Georgetown branch. The space is located between a Bank of America and U Scream Ice Cream and Crepes.

    This is significant, since it’s the first real bank (aside from that credit union in the Reeves Center) to open on U St. That Bank of America only does loans and doesn’t even have an ATM. Hurray for not having to use shady ATMs when I’m in that area!

      Um, Industrial Bank is there. They’re real.

    Shady ATMs? There is a BB&T branch right across the street from this with an indoor ATM and a Suntrust down the street. The 7/11 on U Street has a Citibank ATM in the back.

      You’re right. I’d never seen that BB&T before, despite walking by it countless times. I stand corrected!

    Would be great if it was a BOA ATM/bank there instead of Bank of georgetown, IMO.

    Ellie: Industrial Bank, a REAL bank since 1934, much older than Bank of Georgetown which was founded in 2005
