Kaufman likes what’s in store uptown

Retail specialist Joshua Kaufman prides himself in marrying the right tenants with the right space and not just a retailer that is willing to pay the asking price.

“I think that goes to the qualitative aspect of why these landlords hire us,” said Gorman, who noted that one of the firm’s newest clients is Columbia University.

“Columbia is interested in improving the neighborhood and providing amenities for residents and really gentrifying these neighborhoods. They hired us not to just go out to the market and find every Tom, Dick and Harry that is interested in opening up a shop there,but to really drill down and find the right tenant mix. It’s not just hanging a sign out,” he said.
