The Plan: 2758 Broadway

When Meridiana, a fixture on the Upper West Side, shuttered after nearly two decades, Massey Knakal broker David Chkheidze exposed the Broadway storefront to what rapidly grew into a formidable crowd of more than a hundred would-be retail tenants, despite what he candidly described as a space in disrepair. After tours from both local and national restaurants, not to mention the owner of a Soho art gallery and one health club, Mr. Chkheidze selected Amsterdam Tavern owner Mark Harford, who intends to open an upscale bar and restaurant—named either Five Lamps or Lager House—early this spring. Mr. Chkheidze reviewed the floor plan with The Commercial Observer and discussed what, exactly, drew Mr. Harford and his investment group to the 106th Street location.
