The Brodsky Organization has nabbed four new tenants at 157 Columbus Avenue since completing a hefty renovation and opening up 40,000 square feet of space for new leases on the Upper West Side.

Fusion Learning, CrossFit, Quinlan Development and, as previously reported, Citi Habitats have grabbed space in the 40,000-square-foot section that the Walt Disney Co. had occupied since 1983. After the long-term tenant departed the spot on the northeast corner of 67th Street, the building updated the lobby, elevator cabs, bathrooms and building infrastructure.

Fusion Learning inked a deal for 14,319 square feet on the building’s third floor, represented by Jones Lang LaSalle’s Paul Ferraro, James Malone and Brian Niehaus. CrossFit grabbed 11,116 square feet on the building’s lower level, represented by Mitchell Kunikoff of Lee & Associates, while Quinlan Development leased 5,984 square feet on the second floor. Cushman & Wakefield represented the tenant.

Citi Habitats, as The Real Deal reported in July, picked up 8,335 square feet on the second floor and was represented by Eric Zemachson of Newmark Grubb Knight Frank.

Josh Kuriloff, Jodi Roberts and Drew Braver of Cushman & Wakefield represented the Brodsky Organization in all of the transactions. — Julie Strickland
