Extell, developer of the Riverside South group of fancy condo buildings on the Upper West Side, has pulled the plug on its plan to add a massive Costco store: "[President of Extell] Gary Barnett has heard the concerns of the community, the community board, and elected officials as well as City Planning Commission Chair Amanda Burden and her staff and has therefore eliminated Costco and 500 parking spaces from Riverside Center,' said George Arzt, Extell’s spokesman. Whether another large national retail chain will take the place of a Costco remains to be seen." [West Side Spirit]For more stories from Curbed, go to
