I haven't covered this story much, but a branch of Industrial Bank is about to open in the Anacostia Gateway building at the corner of MLK and Good Hope. It is the first retailer to open in the building, which is still waiting for one more ground floor tenant.
the sign is now above the ATMs in the front room
the interior is very yellow, but pretty sleek
a few historical images of other Industrial Banks are printed on glass as room dividers
another view of the lobby, facing Good Hope Road
ever wanted to see the guts of an ATM?
Although there are many things besides a bank that we hope to see open in downtown Anacostia, this is a great first step. Having good-looking and established retailers set up shop here shows others that it's an okay place to be.
