Bruce Lewin, the owner of 630 Hampton Road in Southampton Village, is trying to evict co-working space the Spur and rescind its lease agreement, according to 27east. The Spur is currently building what will become its 5,000-square-foot flagship location on the site, although construction has come to a standstill. Lewin, an entrepreneur, bought the property last May for $4.5 million as part of an agreement with the Spur, which immediately entered into a new lease with the landlord. But Lewin’s attorney, Peter Guirguis of Mintz & Gold, sent a letter on Feb. 13 to the Spur’s founder, Ashley John Heather, accusing him of breaking that lease by failing to pay applicable taxes (or providing proof that he did), failing to maintain a safe property and breaching a $1 million loan that Lewin gave him for construction expenses. If Heather, advised by the law firm Farrell Fritz, doesn’t agree to void the Spur’s 25-year lease, Lewin will sue, the outlet reported. Heather has previously said that despite setbacks, he remains dedicated to building out the Spur’s Southampton space. Apart from the potential legal problems, the project is also stalled because aspects of it still need to be approved by the Southampton Village Planning Board and the Zoning Board of Appeals. On Feb. 12, The Spur also announced that it also plans to open another spacecome mid-March in East Hampton at 44 Three Mile Road, a former popular dine-and-wine spot[27east]
