Banks eye Boylston Street for new branches

Even as lenders close branches, new ones open in prime neighborhoods

If you take a stroll down Boylston Street in the Back Bay, you will see new bank branches blossoming like spring flowers.

Admirals Bank is planning to open its first Boston banking center on the street in two weeks. Capital One Bank is taking over the prominent storefront once used by Anthropologie, the women’s clothing store, as part of its plans to expand to Massachusetts. And Bank of America, which already has three locations on Boylston, is in negotiations to fill the space now occupied by jeweler Shreve, Crump & Low.
