    Wells Fargo West Hollywood is Getting a Major Facelift in Between Business Hours

    West Hollywood Wells Fargo, located in the Ramada Plaza, at 8571 Santa Monica Boulevard, is getting a major overhaul inside the bank’s lobby area. According to workers, the construction will take place at night during off businesses hours. The redesign is projected to be completed next month on October 20th.

    There have been rumors that the bank may be closing after furnishings were seen being removed from the building, however the bank is actually getting a brand-new redesign. A source tells WEHO TIMES that everything will be revamped in the lobby area and that the major construction work will happen at night.

    Construction crew workers were busy painting walls and ripping out old tile flooring on Tuesday night/Wednesday morning. Customers will be stepping on concrete floors when they do their banking on Wednesday morning.

    Sadly, the Wells Fargo’s LGBT Mural at the WeHo location was painted over as part of branch’s latest redesign.

    the mural was part of Wells Fargo’s West Hollywood Mural Project which celebrated the unique history and diversity of the local LGBT community. Historical images of West Hollywood include personal photos of pioneering activists who were on the front lines during the early struggle for LGBT rights.

    The mural was unveiled on June 5, 2014 as part of Pride Month. Stuart Milk, nephew of Harvey and founder of the Milk Foundation, joined community leaders like Lesbian activist Ivy Bottini and Rev. Troy Perry of the Metropolitan Community Church for a Ribbon cutting ceremony. The 102-foot mural celebrated the accomplishments of the LGBT rights movement. Bottini and Rev Perry were both featured on the mural, which also included marches, bars, the nearby Chateau Marmont hotel, and the railway system that once ran through West Hollywood. The mural was installed on the eve of Los Angeles Pride.

    Wells Fargo has installed similar gay history murals in LGBT neighborhoods in San Francisco, New York, Washington, D.C., and Wilton Manors, Fla.

    Great to see them invest in the city and stay open. Wish Bank of America had kept more branches open. Too bad the mural could not have been saved though.

    I’m surprised they are still in business. They’ve gone down hill at warped speed in recent years and although they had been very generous with financially sponsoring community events over the years, it’s sad to see someone thought it wise to paint over history.
