Owners Want To Level Old Hampton Bays Bar


The days are numbered for the Hampton Bays building that most recently housed Porky’s and, before that, the Foggy Goggle bar.

The Southampton Town Planning Board could soon sign off on plans to demolish the East Montauk Highway building and replace it with a two-story, 9,800-square foot office building.

No one from the public voiced concerns about the project, which would sit on the 1.27-acre property, during last week’s public hearing.

The application was filed by the Falcon Development Corporation of HB, which owns the property, according to town records. Company officials could not be reached for comment this week.

Town Planner Anthony Trezza said this week that there is no set time frame for the work, which still requires final approval from the Planning Board. The proposal could be approved by the end of the summer.

A change in the parking plan was presented during last Thursday’s meeting. The property actually shares a parking lot with two adjoining properties. Mr. Trezza noted that town officials want to restrict the flow of traffic to the nearby King Kullen, which sits just to the west of the property, so that there would be only one-way access from the supermarket lot to the office building lot. Currently, there is two-way access.
