State Street Capital Realty, an independent brokerage of CASTO, announced today its recent listing for the retail portion of The View on Fifth, located at Holly and Fifth Avenue in the Grandview area of Columbus.   The developer of the project is JSDI Celmark, Ltd., whose principals are Jerry Solove and Mike Balakrishnan.  Agents for State Street Capital Realty are leasing associates Chad Hamrick and Sydney Federer.  

The View on Fifth is being developed as a mixed-use six-story project which will include 25,000 square feet of retail shops and restaurants, a free standing 6-story parking garage, and  285 luxury, 1, 2, 3 and 4 bedroom apartment residences.  Retailers will be provided with exceptional visibility and access.  The retail will have dedicated, structured parking, and easy access within what is a very walkable community, in a trade area that has been proven to provide among the highest of sales per square foot within the SMSA in dining and personal services.

Residential amenities, for primarily empty nesters and millennials, will be plentiful,  including cutting edge community spaces,  a 24/7 fitness facility, comfortable meeting rooms and gathering areas, and an all-weather outdoor amenity deck with a swimming pool and hot tub, fire pits, grills, seating and dining areas.

State Street Capital Realty (CASTO) was easily our preferred 3rd party brokerage to lease the retail portion of The View on Fifth, because of their strong retail relationships, and their depth of expertise in the Columbus market area as well as with national and regional retailers and restaurants, said Jerry Solove.

Our brokerage had always been very selective regarding our listing arrangements.  We feel strongly that that the combination of the developer and the location will make this a great development for the Grandview market, commented Chad Hamrick, listing agent for the project.

Construction is underway for The View on Fifth.  The retail shops will be available for occupancy in time for opening to the public in July 2015.  For a quick look at the project, visit www.theViewonFifth.com.
