Downtown Hampton Mixed-Use Building Taking Shape

HAMPTON—The sound of pile drivers has subsided as piers are in place and the new mixed-use building in Downtown Hampton is starting to take shape. After a slow start due to some underground utility line complications that changed the original plans slightly, the framework is going up and operations are moving forward.

The construction is happening in two phases, which are being done concurrently. The first floor of the building will be used for commercial use and operational facilities for the approximately 159 apartments upstairs. There is a concept for a new restaurant to occupy part of the ground floor level, but to date, nothing has been leased yet.

The apartments are expected to be high-end, catering to those who want to be part of the Downtown Hampton culture. One portion of the building will front Queens Way and Wine streets, the other portion will face Settlers Landing and King streets. Some apartments will have a view of the marina next to Carousel Park.

The living spaces upstairs will most likely be available for tenancy sometime in the second quarter of next year. No price points have been established yet.  “This is a first step in constructing additional housing options in Downtown Hampton, which will drive the need for more service-related businesses, and additional new residential construction,” said Stephen Mallon, Executive Director of the Downtown Hampton Development Partnership, Inc.
