  • So the Chase bank next to Waterworks is finally hitting the dust. Never did hear who bought the block or what they plan on doing with it….

  • For the W 19th Chase bank, they are tearing down the drive-thrus. They will be building the new bank there, then demolishing the existing building. Chase owned most of the block except the two small businesses.

  • Ownership records indicate that roughly the SE quarter of the block (from the corner of Nicholson up to and including the eastern-most of the two small buildings) remain in the hands of Chase. The other roughly 3/4 of the block, including the westernmost of the two small buildings at 529 W 19th, the current bank building and all of the 20th street frontage, has been transferred to another LLC.
    That same LLC also appears to own the 1-story brick building catty-corner to the site, at the NW corner of Lawrence and 20th.

  • Correction: it’s the parking lot at the SW corner of 20th and Lawrence.
