Small Door Vet Joins Retail Tenants at Upper West Side’s 667 Columbus
Veterinary practice Small Door Vet signed a 2,900-square-foot retail lease at 667 Columbus Ave., a 203-unit residential property owned by Stellar Management and Vornado Realty Trust on Manhattan’s Upper West Side. Small Door Vet is joining four other retail tenants including Morningside Playcare, Peaky Barista, Cleanlab Cleaners and Orangetheory Fitness in the newly constructed, glass enclosed retail pavilion.
The CBRE retail team of David LaPierre and Kristen Crossman serve as the exclusive retail agents for the property and represented Stellar Management. CBRE’s Matt Chmielecki acted on behalf of Small Door Vet.
“We are thrilled with the success of the retail component at 667 Columbus Ave.,” said Crossman. “The newly constructed glass pavilion in the heart of one of Manhattan’s best residential neighborhoods has attracted an amazing cross section of quality service-oriented retailers. The 15,000-square-foot retail space is now nearly 80% leased.”
