594 Columbia Rd, DorchesterPayless Shoe to become a Food Court

 The first floor of what is commonly referred to at the Dorchester Bay building is slated to be turned into a food court, at least so says LoopNet , an online service which claims to be "the most comprehensive resource for commercial real estate online."

594 Columbia Rd is the location of Payless Shoes and has been for many years.  Apparently, they are giving up their lease effective August 2012.

Sales History

As of April 2011, ABG Realty was marketing the property at a lease rate of $2500 per month. 

As of August 2012, the price has dropped to $1600 per month.

LoopNet provides the following description:

The current Payless Shoe site at the intersection of Columbia & Dudley is being converted to the New Upham' s Corner Food Court. 186 Seats, all glass fronts and great signage! As any of you who know the neighborhood, this is a four star location: across from CVS with public parking behind the property, several bus stops at the corner, very heavy foot and vehicle traffic, amazing visibility, and sorely needed! We are specically seeking established operators of: coffee shop and local coffee roaster, a deli, and a bakery. The area has none of the above!

Uphams Corner is a section of Dorchester, the largest neighborhood of Boston, Massachusetts. The intersection of Dudley Street and Columbia Road is the heart of Uphams Corner, and one of Dorchester's main business districts.
