Former Saks Still Needs a Tenant [Empty in Southampton]

What business would you like to see move into 1 Hampton Road?

The Saks Fifth Avenue store in Southampton Village closed in October 2010 citing sluggish sales, and the building has remained vacant since.

But before it was Saks, 1 Hampton Road was Southampton Town Hall. The words "Southampton Town Hall" can still be read across the top of the two-story pillared building, and the remnants of "Saks Fifth Avenue" are visible as well.

Corrected: relocated to the former Southampton Intermediate School at 116 Hampton Road, which was Southampton High School before that.

On the northeast corner of Main Street and Hampton Road, the former Saks is listed with CBRE, a Los Angeles-based real estate firm said to be the biggest in the world. It is available for lease for retail uses; it is not for sale.

According to a Hamptons.com report, the building is 15,000 square feet.

What store or stores would you like to see at 1 Hampton Road? Leave your suggestions in a comment below.

I think that the building would make a really cool lounge/restaurant/bar. I am sure there are plenty of people who think that is an awful idea but Southampton needs a little life in it, it is dead on even weekend nights. If done right and angled towards an older more mature crowd it could be great.

Actually the East End has an Apple Specialist store in Sag Harbor-GeekHampton is an Authorized Apple Reseller and Apple Authorized Service Provider. Skip the trip to Smithaven Mall, GeekHampton is soooo much closer-34 Bay St.

Town Hall moved into the Intermediate School not the Elementary. The Elementary was and still is on Pine Street. The Intermediate School moved to Leland Lane ant the High School moved to it's new building on Narrow lane. This happened in early 1974. Kevin Guidera

Thanks, Kevin. I actually received an email this morning saying the same thing. I am writing a correction now.

This could be a very classy head shop/tatoo parlor.

What is the rent on the place? What moves in will be dictated by that, zoning, and how profitable the business will be. any thought of breaking it up into smaller shops?

I like to see it becoming a mini mall, it would give the opportunities to small businesses.
