One of Southampton’s most historic buildings located at a highly visible corner in the village is available for a new retail tenant.
Newmark Grubb Knight Frank Retail has been named exclusive leasing agent for the Victorian Gothic building at 11 Jobs Lane.
NGKF’s Jeffrey D. Roseman said it offers a prime flagship opportunity at the intersection of Southampton’s two main shopping corridors, Jobs Lane and Main Street, and sits among other upscale retailers such as C Wonder, Ralph Lauren, J. McLaughlin, Alice + Olivia, and vineyard vines.
“Many retailers realize the value of having permanent East End locations along the main shopping streets to cater to the increasing number of year-round residents,” said Roseman, who along with Andrew S. Weisz is marketing the property on behalf of ownership, the RPW Group Inc.
The building offers 7,600 s/f over two levels with additional storage space. Originally designed by architect R.H. Robertson in 1895 to house the Rogers Memorial Library, the building most recently served as an auxiliary space for the Parrish Art Museum. It is situated across the street from the historic clock tower where high-end apparel store J. McLaughlin is located and next to the Southampton Center for the Arts.
Robert Weisz, chairman and CEO of RPW Group, commented, “We are extremely proud to offer a building with such unique architectural value and the absolute best location in Southampton.”
