Chase Bank to close White Center branch next year

(King County Assessor’s Office photo)

The Chase Bank branch at 1616 SW 100th is closing in February. That’s what the bank announced in a letter to customers, including Marcus, who tipped us about it. The letter says the banking giant will be “permanently closing” the branch as of February 10, 2022. The letter suggests customers use ATMs or the Westwood Village branch in West Seattle once this branch closes. Property records show Chase owns the building; we’ll be asking them after the holiday what their plans are for the site. Chase closed a branch in West Seattle almost a year ago, in a Morgan Junction supermarket, but still has three freestanding branches there, as well as a branch in Burien, at 222 SW 150th. Meantime, White Center’s bank options are shriveling – you’ll recall the Bank of America branch on 17th SW closed not that long ago.

  1. It would be great to see that unusual building repurposed for another business.

  2. Hi, BlairJ, We couldn’t agree more. It is a unique building in WC and would be great for another business in that very visible spot.

  3. It’s probably going to become a weed store like the old US bank in Georgetown.

  4. The vault would come in handy for a weed store.
