Wells Fargo opens Cooper Center branch
Wells Fargo has officially opened its Cooper Center branch after relocating there from a building nearly diagonal across Richmond Highway.
According to Wells Fargo spokesperson Kenrick Thomas, the bank moved to the 2,127 square-foot space at Cooper Center after the Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) exercised eminent domain rights and bought the Colonial Revival-style building at 8770 Richmond Highway where the bank previously was located. Part of that building’s surrounding property will be impacted by VDOT’s Richmond Highway widening project.
The new Cooper Center branch of Wells Fargo is designed and built to the U.S. Green Building Council’s Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design standards, said Thomas, incorporating energy-saving lighting, low-flow water fixtures, low toxicity paints and materials, and strict indoor air quality management. The branch also has the latest technologies, including tablets, complimentary customer Wi-Fi, charging stations in the customer lounge, a touch-enabled media screen of Wells Fargo products and services, and two assisted-service ATMs in the lobby.
The address of the new bank branch location is 8723-A Cooper Road.
