Wells Fargo Goes Full Monty on the Bowery

Posted on: February 14th, 2019 at 5:00 am by

Wells Fargo just fully revealed itself on the Bowery.

Gone is the plywood shed and construction materials from the exterior of 276 Bowery. Here now is the unobstructed view of the latest bank on the Bowery. Not Chase, but a Wells Fargo, the first of its kind for the Lower East Side environs.

Looks like it’ll be up and running sometime this week.

Wells Fargo takes the store vacated by the trendy FitHouse gym last summer (they’re now in NoHo). Build-out has been ongoing for a couple months on this branch.

Its presence here appears totally out of place, but such is Bowery 2.0.

This property is part of the Joseph Betesh portfolio acquired six years ago in a deal valued at $62 million. At least one of his other buildings on the thoroughfare also has a bank in the ground floor – Bank of America at 88 Bowery (Hester).
