Washington Business Bank, which currently operates its main office on Martin Way in Olympia, has applied to state and federal regulators to move that office downtown, according to a legal notice published in Thursday's Olympian.

The new destination is 223 Fifth Ave. S.E., according to the notice, the former location of a First Citizens Bank branch.

First Citizens vacated that building over the summer.

If the move is approved, it will be the second bank in recent months to announce plans to move downtown.

Thurston First Bank also has plans to move downtown, eventually occupying a portion of the former state Department of Personnel building at Franklin Street and Legion Way.

The former personnel building will be renamed the Thurston First Bank Building.

Washington Business Bank currently is at 2607 Martin Way E., Olympia.

For the third quarter, the privately held business bank reported net income of about $78,000, nearly double that from the year-ago period.
