Covenant Cops Back on the Beat

A year ago I wrote a column in The Business Monthly about the lack of covenant enforcement in some of Columbia’s commercial properties. I singled out two properties on Dobbin Road as examples of blatant  violations of Columbia's once rigorously enforced covenants; the chain link fence surrounding an auto repair storage lot and a taped up storefront window at Hanmi, Inc.

The window had been taped up for over three years.

What a difference a year makes. The window at Hanmi has been replaced and last week the chain link fence was taken down and a new, less noticeable, fence has been erected in its place.

These covenant corrections indicate that the Howard Hughes Corporation is still committed to protecting the Columbia brand, even in areas outside of Town Center
