The Brodsky Organization is renovating and repositioning 157 Columbus Avenue following the departure of longtime tenant Walt Disney Co., The Commercial Observer has learned.

The renovation is the first at the Upper West Side office building since it was built 30 years ago, in 1983 – the same year Walt Disney signed its lease there.

Ownership hired architecture firm Davis Brody Bond LLP to design the new lobby, elevator cabs, bathrooms, and upgraded building infrastructure, while a team from Cushman & Wakefield will resume its leasing efforts on the roughly 70,000 square feet of available space after the renovations, expected to conclude this summer, are complete.
