 Overview
 Description
Large 2 story complex (3 stories if you count the parking garage) that consisted of two buildings connected underground by a large parking garage. I dubbed the whole complex under one name, the Blood Bank, because one building dealt with money and was a bank and the other dealt with blood and was a medical center and clinic amongst other things. The bank was a 2 story Bank of the West...the other building was a two story office and medical center with chiropractor offices, urologists, dentists, clinic, a drive through pharmacy, and even other offices like a limo company

     History
    Both buildings were apart of the same complex connected underground by a sub-level parking garage. Not sure when either of these buildings were built or closed but wasn't long ago or for very long from what I could tell. One was once a small time bank called Bank of the West which is still around as a company but possibly just changed locations and the other housed several offices including a limousine business office to a urologists, medical clinic, dentist, ophthalmologist, pharmacy, and many other medical and personal care offices some of which have changed locations and office buildings. So more then likely the building was not shut down due to these companies and offices going out of business, as for the real reason I'm not sure and looking into it.
     Media Coverage
    none that i could find other then some out of date business or office websites and old business reviews
     Future Plans
    Being demolished as of January 2011. Lot was flattened and fenced off last time i drove by one night and more then likely looks like they will be re-building on the site. Not sure if the parking garage is still there but it might be.
