Chase opened its flagship branch at 1950 Sixth Ave., Seattle. At 8,100 square feet, it is more than twice the size of a typical branch, and is the largest the bank has built in the state in more than 40 years.

The two-story branch was built on a small wedge-shaped parcel where a McDonald’s restaurant operated for about 40 years until it closed in January 2020.

The design of the full renovation was driven by the unique triangular building, a single point of entry, accessibility from both sidewalks, and using sustainable low-maintenance materials.

The branch has a double-height lobby with a wood and steel staircase linking the two main levels. Passersby can glimpse the interior from all sides of the building.

Owner: Chase

Architect: Ankrom Moisan
