Construction crews looked busy Thursday afternoon at the forthcoming Bank of America branch at 670 Avenue of the Americas.

One worker, who was wheeling in a big cart of equipment, suggested the place could be open for business by the end of April.

Bank of America has been planning to convert the modernish, funky-looking, two-level
landmarked building to a financial center since at least 2005.

The site was once home to Innovation Luggage and a cheap men’s suits store upstairs.

It will be the sixth B of A location within a 1-mile radius.

A company spokesperson informed The Real Estate via email that the so-called “Bank of Opportunity” is still looking to provide even more opportunities in the city: “We plan to continue to open new banking centers in Manhattan where we see as underbanked areas.”

UPDATE: According to the company, “the center will open in late spring, will take up 2 floors, and will be about 6,000 sq ft.”
