Wells Fargo ATM Finally Open at Georgia Avenue Metro

Its been a long time coming, but the Wells Fargo ATM above the Georgia Avenue-Petworth Metro Station (west side) appears to finally be operational. Back in 2011 I noted just how underserved the community was with banking services — especially compared to other areas around Metro stations such as U Street or Columbia Heights. While it isn’t a full banking facility, just having the ATM is a significant service improvement for the area.

    that entire storefront is just for an ATM? Its not even a full bank. I think is a terrible waste of space. we need more retail.

      Seriously! We already have ATM’s around the neighborhood.
      It’s beyond me why our ANC reps and City Council member don’t put some pressure on the Park Place owners to lease their space.

      Wow, they used that entire storefront for an ATM! As it is an improvement from an empty storefront of 5+ years it amazes me that this is the best they could do directly above the Metro.

    Park Place is a DISASTER. Crime, vacant store fronts etc. Why this prime retail space is vacant is beyond me. I hope the owner is being taxed the vacant property tax rate.

      I believe the original sweetheart deal allowed them tax-exempt status for a significant period of time which could explain the lack of motivation.

    Like any sane person would ever use an ATM near this metro stop.
