A range of blocks along Columbus Avenue has reached 100 percent retail occupancy, the New York Post reported. Three new leases have brought the 188 storefronts between 67th and 82nd streets to full occupancy, the Post said.

According to another article in the Post, there will be a new, 7,000-square-foot Italian restaurant at 446 Columbus Avenue between 81st and 82nd streets in the former Calle Ocho site, where asking rents were $77 per square foot. Meanwhile, the Paper Source will occupy 5,900 square feet over three levels at 309 Columbus Avenue between 74th and 75th streets. Finally, Café Talullah is now under construction at 240 Columbus Avenue at 71st Street, according to the Post.

This news comes as the Upper West Side’s community board is proposing a significant rezoning. The plan aims to limit the size of new ground-floor storefronts to 40 feet  and banks along Amsterdam and Columbus avenues, as well as Broadway, to 25 feet. In addition, the plan would rezone the retail zones of Columbus Avenue between 72nd and 87th streets and Amsterdam Avenue and Broadway between 72nd and 110th streets. [Post] and [Post sidebar]
