JPMorgan Chase applies to open its first Downtown Baltimore branch

The largest retail bank in the U.S. is coming to Downtown Baltimore.

JPMorgan Chase & Co. will open a branch at 100 S. Charles St. sometime next year, said Carolyn Evert, a spokesperson for the bank. The branch will be located at the corner of West Pratt Street and South Charles Street, in a spot that previously held a branch for Bank of America, before the company departed 100 S. Charles St. for new offices in Harbor East, closing the building’s branch in the process.
