Chase Bank may fill Greenwich Avenue site left empty by departure of a branch of TD Bank  Middletown Press

GREENWICH — A prominent vacancy on Greenwich Avenue is due to be filled.

A TD Bank at 235 Greenwich Ave. off East Elm Street closed recently, and plans are in the works for a Chase bank branch to open there in its place. Both financial institutions have other locations in central Greenwich.

JP Morgan Chase recently submitted an application with the town Planning & Zoning Commission to reuse the two floors of the building as a bank branch.

According to the application, filed by a planning consultant, Coral Silsbe, the interior work would involve new partitions, furniture and fixtures. On the outside, new lighting, cameras and doors would be installed. The work would not impact the residential section on top of the building.

The structure, which dates to 1900, is owned by JRCL Greenwich LLC, associated with Lisa Vitiello.

TD Bank closed numerous bank branches in 2021, over 80 across the country, as bank customers continue to handle more financial transactions online.

The development proposal for the bank has yet to be scheduled at the Planning & Zoning Commission.

The intersection is one of the busiest and most visible along the Greenwich Avenue corridor. A pedestrian-safety and beautification project was completed there in 2021.

Lengthy debate erupted over a proposal to cut down a stately old pin oak that stands in front of the building as part of the so-called “bump-outs” on the Avenue, and the tree was given a reprieve.
