  1. Restaurant Development in Little Rock Metro area

    Hmmm, sounds like my kind of establishment! Definitely won't be taking my wife there, but it's going to be a cool spot to hang out with my friends during ball games.
  2. Park Avenue

    It shouldn't hurt Park Plaza's and Park Avenue's feelings if this area is marketed as "Midtowne Shopping District". Even for a shopper that is coming to the area for the first time specifically for Midtowne Center, they will not be able to avoid Park Plaza and Park Avenue. That is just good business for all three centers.
  3. Chenal Parkway / Highway 10

    There's also a TCBY at the Lakewood Village Shopping Center in North Little Rock near the McCain Mall. Those are the only two TCBYs that I know of in the LR Metro.
  4. Main Street, Downtown Little Rock.

    It's amazing that after the huge success of the Rivermarket District, that there hasn't been a push for development along Main Street. A mistake would be to try to make Main Street like the Rivermarket District... I think that Main Street projects should focus more on family-oriented businesses which would cover that niche and bring that completely different audience downtown for entertainment. The Rivermarket pretty much focuses on nightlife and tend to draw people wanting have good adult fun. Main Street could have a nice movie theater and family-oriented restaurants and retail which would cater to families. Both of these downtown areas should grow together to ensure that there will be mixed foottraffic between both the Rivermarket District and Main Street. Just my opinion... I think a lot.
  5. Maumelle

    Get you a Kroger card and do your grocery shopping at Kroger and avoid those ridiculously long lines that Wal-Mart stores tend to have. I'm usually a penny pincher myself, but sometimes I'm willing to pay an extra 20 cents for a gallon of milk just to avoid those long lines at the checkouts at Wal-Mart and Wal-Mart's Neighborhood Market.
  6. Riverdale area

    That's a very nice part of town! The people telling you that it is unsafe out there are just ill-informed. If I didn't have school aged children, I would likely be living in that area.
  7. Maumelle

    So is that new Wal-Mart Supercenter being built on Maumelle Blvd. on the North Little Rock side or the Maumelle side? Just curious.
  8. Maumelle

    For some reason it does not surprise me that KATV made ignorant remarks such as that. Little Rock/North Little Rock is the economic and social hub of the metro area and all surrounding communities are suburbs. I guarantee you that atleast 3/4 of Maumelle residents work in Little Rock/North Little Rock.
  9. Who will reach 100,000 first?

    Wow, it amazes me how all of you guys are overlooking Jonesboro. Jonesboro is home to the second largest university system in the state, so it is also a "college town". Although the 2000 census population was only 55,500 and the 2006 estimate was 60,400, with Jonesboro being the "only show in town" when it comes to the Delta region and with many residents of the small Delta towns moving to Jonesboro recently, I think that Jonesboro has the best chance of being the next city to reach the 100,000 milestone (though not anytime soon). I think that Jonesboro's biggest problem these days is the fact that it is not connected to Little Rock via four-lane highway, which explains why Jonesboro has more connections with Memphis than with the state's capital. It's wrong that you have to travel on narrow two-laned roads to travel between Little Rock and Jonesboro.
  10. River Market Tower/Place

    Cities do not get the opportunity to host NCAA tournaments often. Little Rock/North Little Rock better really get involved and do this thing right, or the NCAAs won't be coming back to the area anytime soon.
  11. I-630 / I-430 Interchange

    Anyone with a bit of sense knows that this is what would be best for Pulaski County, but you know how Arkansas is
  12. Little Rock Population Estimates

    NLR's population actually did get down to around 58k around 2003, but it should be back to 60k by next year and like was mentioned earlier, it will likely be 61k or 62k in the 2010 census. It appears that NLR found a couple of "holes" to grow through and the city is growing both east and northwest along I-40.
  13. The River Market

    I'm telling you guys if someone was to put a full-sized movie theater downtown (preferably in the River Market District), that alone would bring tons of foot traffic in the district every evening and night. All types of businesses that cater to the 20-40 year old crowd would try to set up shop in the area, including retailers. Has noone thought of putting like a 6-8 screen movie theater in the River Market District area yet?
  14. I-630 / I-430 Interchange

    I know that I-440 is suppose to eventually be extended through the Sherwood/Jacksonville area and connect with I-430/I-40, but when are they going to start on this thing? With all of the growth to the north (especially Cabot) driving to work in West Little Rock has become a nightmare! Just completing that project alone should significantly reduce traffic at the I30/I40 split.
