Hamlet (4/14)



  1. We have them here in Wichita and people seem to like them (and they're always busy) despite strong local pizza offerings nearby as well. It was explained to me as being "to pizza what 5 Guys is to burgers".
  2. I'm impressed by how well those buildings turned out... Totally changes the look and feel of that corner, which is really an entrance to a revitalized Main Street, for the better. I look forward to checking them out the next time I'm in LR.
  3. If I remember right a $1 million + unit on one of the high (possibly top?) floors sold very recently.
  4. That's great, in my opinion. That building is pretty.. unfortunate... looking and 4 stories will add a nice bit of density to that corner and help enhance the feel of the "entrance" to that part of Main Street.
  5. There's one in Fayetteville and one in Rogers, so if they're looking into entering the LR market that center might be a good opportunity for them. Though I'm surprised if they were looking for a while that they didn't throw one in Shackleford Crossings, McCain area, or somewhere out west.
  6. We have one in the mall nearest my house in Wichita (Dillard's is another anchor) and it seems quite nice. It reminds me a lot of Macy's with a more "traditional" upscale flair. The Dillard's in the mall is also pretty nice, as I imagine it has to be to compete somewhat, but Von Maur still felt higher end. My take: They're not Nordstrom, but it's nicer than a standard Dillard's or Macy's.
  7. Nike Factory Store is basically the outlet store of Nike. Most of their stores are "factory stores" and many of those are in outlet malls. There are only a few actual Nike Stores and they're in major cities.
  8. I'm so excited by what Main Street is going to look like in a few years. I'm a little sad that I'm leaving Little Rock before all this really gets wrapped up, but it'll definitely give me something to look forward to when I visit.
  9. I'm very pleased by the selection/location since I think it will help build momentum on the part of Main Street most likely to eventually tie into the actual River Market core. Although we've known through rumblings that this was likely to be Aloft for a while now, it's very nice to see it confirmed and for there to be a pretty strong time-line on renovation. The coffee shop and restaurant space are great news too. I think Main Street is going to be pretty cool in about 5 years.
  10. The eventual dental school will most likely be based in Little Rock.
  11. The Pei Wei at Midtowne (in Little Rock) is dangerously close to my house. I don't want to know exactly how much I spent there since moving here. At any rate, I think one would do extremely well in Fayetteville. The one in Midtowne is always busy and they've been working on plans to build two more here for quite some time, surprised they haven't jumped into NWA yet.
  12. That is a big building for an Aloft in Little Rock (considerably larger than what was hoped to be built originally I believe), but if that is true that would be very nice. Nothing against Marriott but we're running out of their brands to locate downtown and Aloft would be a different atmosphere than anything else down there now.
  13. Exciting news. Main street is going to be very nice in a few years the way things are shaping up.
  14. I'd rather have both. Dillard's does not treat the Arkansas market very well because they know they have the segment locked down and there's no real competition to force them to up their game. If you visit Dillard's in Little Rock (or NW Arkansas) and compare it to one in a mall in St. Louis or Dallas where they have both Macy's and Dillard's, you'll notice the stores are more updated and have a wider range of product offerings. It makes sense- there's no point in remodeling stores, keeping your product lines trendy, and being price-competitive when there's no immediate competition to force you to do so and it's profitable not to. But comreguy is right, the deck is just so stacked against a major competitor entering the mall market in Arkansas we're pretty much stuck with them.
  15. I've thought that property would be a perfect development spot. Especially if that damn RV park would ever sell and be turned into something more appealing.
