Cupcake lovers rejoice! Crumbs re-opening in Columbus Square

Crumbs ClosuresSweet news for New Yorkers: one of the first Crumbs Bake Shop locations to re-open under new owners will be the Columbus Square location, Side Dish has learned.

The bakery has come to an agreement with the landlord at 795 Columbus Ave. and is slated to open next month with offerings beyond cupcakes to include coffee and other drinks.

Crumbs abruptly closed down — with no notice to employees, landlords or customers — in July and filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection shortly thereafter.

CNBC TV personality Marcus Lemonis, who hosts a show that tries to turn around failing businesses, and Dippin’ Dots owner Fischer Enterprises LLC won a bankruptcy auction for the chain with a $6.5 million bid.

Crumbs, founded in 2003, had a successful run until the cupcake craze cooled. By then, overexpansion and a failure to diversify beyond giant cupcakes caused it to crumble.

Under its new owners, Crumbs plans to re-open only 28 of its 49 locations in New York, Los Angeles, Chicago and Washington.

There is no news yet on whether a Crumbs will continue to work with Melita Bakery, in the Bronx, which has been with Crumbs since 2003.

Along with Crumbs, a new hamburger joint is also coming to Columbus Square.

Bareburger, an organic, all-natural line, is launching in 1,875 square feet in four to six weeks, Side Dish learned.

It will be a welcome addition to the Columbus Square complex, whose shops include Sephora, Michael’s, Home Goods and Yogurtland.

Bareburger, which launched in Astoria in 2009, has 18 locations, from Manhattan to Ohio.

Winick Realty Group Brings Ann Taylor Loft To Columbus Square

charles-rapuano-258x3009The retail at Columbus Square will soon be home to a new location for popular women’s clothing store Ann Taylor Loft. Winick Realty Group broker Kelly Gedinsky announced the long-term lease at 795 Columbus Avenue, between 89th and 99th Streets, which completes leasing activity at the building.

“As the retail component at Columbus Square has been filling up, we are finding more female-oriented tenants expressing interest in the project,” said Gedinsky.

“This may be due in part to the schools on the property, as you see many mothers walking through, congregating at Whole Foods and frequenting stores like Sephora and the soon-to-open European Wax Center.”

Ann Taylor Loft will be the first non-big-box clothing store at Columbus Square when it opens in the third quarter of 2014. The brand will occupy 4,231 square feet of ground floor space.

Gedinsky represented ownership along with Winick Realty Group broker Charles Rapuano. Ann Taylor Loft was represented by Joanne Podell and Ian Lerner of Cushman & Wakefield.

loftA new Ann Taylor LOFT is opening this summer in Columbus Square, real estate sources said.

The national women’s clothing chain, which is more affordable and targeted to a younger audience than its sister brand Ann Taylor, will sit next to a new Bareburger and Yogurtland frozen yogurt shop, said Michelle Loeb of Winick Realty Group, which brokered the deal.

The 4,231-square-foot space sits on the ground floor of 795 Columbus Ave. at West 98th Street, across from Sephora and T.J. Maxx.

LOFT has another neighborhood location at West 69th Street and Broadway.

Representatives from Ann Taylor did not respond to a request for comment.
