Chase Bank branch coming next to Riverview's Winthrop Town Centre in January

RIVERVIEW — A construction trailer recently popped up in the vacant gas station lot at Providence Road and Bloomingdale Avenue near Winthrop Town Centre prompting the question, "What will it be?" A fast-food chain? Another gas station?

Nope, it's a bank.

Hawkins Construction of Tarpon Springs will break ground Monday on a Chase Bank, scheduled to open in January. The location, next to Winthrop Town Centre, will make banking convenient for customers living and working nearby, company spokesperson Melissa Shuffield said.

Chase recently began expanding into Riverview, Shuffield said. A branch at U.S. 301 and Big Bend Road will have its grand opening Sept. 10, and the bank plans to open six new branches in the Tampa area before the end of the year. There are currently 38 branches throughout the bay area.

"More branches translates into more jobs," Shuffield said.

Chase expects to fill 200 positions at bay area branches before 2012. Job openings are posted online at Those interested should apply before the opening of new locations, Shuffield said.

Times staff writer Sarah Whitman can be reached at (813) 661-2439.
