Compass’ Polsinelli Closes Deal for Upper West Side Retail Condo

Vice chairman Adelaide Polsinelli of Compass has sold an approximately 11,000-square-foot retail condominium with 100’ of wraparound frontage, at 380 Columbus Ave., also known as 101 W. 78th Str., on Manhattan’s Upper West Side.  

The property consists of approximately 10,000+/- square feet, which includes the ground floor and lower level. The space is vented for possible food and beverage use. Ceiling heights range as high as 12’6”, with 9’ 6” in the lower level. 

“This exceptional real estate presents an ideal situation for individual tenanted use as well as any combination of retail, medical, educational and office uses,” said Polsinelli. 

380 Columbus Ave. is a Neo-Renaissance building, constructed in 1886 by architects Simon Schwartz and Arthur Gross and was designed by Emile Gruwe. It was recently converted to luxury residential condos. The retail condo features oversized arched windows and a restored red brick façade with decorative limestone and terra cotta.
