  1. I saw that in the Democrat Gazette review of restaurant openings and closings for 2018.

    The River Market

    What did the outgoing mayor do about panhandling? It has gotten worse under his watch.
  3. It will be interesting to see if someone will pay the price and actually develop the property into a hotel.
  4. The restaurant closure phenomenon is not just happening in a Little Rock. I was reading in the Louisville Business Journal that 72 restaurants closed there in 2018. People’s eating habits change so restaurants will go and come. It’s just the nature of the beast.
  5. Bank OZK has the naming rights to the arena in Hot Springs that’s attached to the convention center.
  6. Simmons Bank has purchased the naming rights to Verizon Arena for $10.5 million for 15 years. The new name will become official sometime in 2019.

    The Promenade At Chenal

    According to the Democrat-Gazette restaurant transitions article on Thursday Lost 40 will not be taking over the Tavern spot. But also according to the article active lease negotiations are on going.
  8. That location has been sold. Don’t know what’s going in there yet. I’m not surprised. Went there a couple of weeks ago for lunch and there were very few people in there.

    East Village

    I wonder what going to happen to Rock Dental’s current HQ on Clinton Ave.?
  10. Clinton National is getting its first hotel in 30 years. A Fairfield Inn will be built by 2019 near the Comfort Inn.

    Little Rock Midtown Area

    Maybe an Aloft or Hyatt Place at best with those number of rooms.

    The River Market

    Simmons employees are starting to move into the former Acxiom building.
  13. In their latest annual report the LRCVB says that the Statehouse Convention Center will have to be looked at in 5 or so years for expansion if the center wants to attract larger conventions or multiple meetings at the same time. Where will the expansion occur? Will another convention center hotel be needed? I would think so and how many rooms? Is an expansion even needed?
  14. AC Hotel is brand that started in Europe and Marriott brought to the US a few years ago.
  15. I know since the lifting of the Wright Amendment Little Rock is not as important to SWA hence the loss of direct flights to Chicago, Houston and Baltimore/Washington. Every time I’ve flown to Phoenix on Southwest the flight has been full so I didn’t understand why they would eliminate that flight.
