Site plans for the West Bay Drive bank are awaiting city approval before construction can begin, possibly sometime in May.
Construction could soon begin on a Chase Bank at the corner of West Bay Drive and Clearwater-Largo Road, pending city leader approval of the site plans, according to officials.

Fast food chains often open in proximity to each other. Gas stations typically oppose one another on corners. For a while, pharmacies did, too. So it seems to be the case for banks as well. Largo city leaders on Tuesday cleared the way for a proposed Chase Bank to be built near the intersection of West Bay Drive and Clearwater-Largo Road, adjacent to an existing Wells Fargo bank and a parking lot.
