  1. So everyone is wondering what's going on in the McCain area. At McCain Mall, they are currently replacing sewage lines and pipes. Nothing really major. It is all a apart of their mall renovation plans. As far as the hotel next to Comfort Inn and Suites, it is to become a Holiday Inn full service facility. I was told a Holiday Inn Select. Not sure about it being a Select, but that would be nice. Not sure if it would be the best location for one. Why they would put a Church's in Lakewood... beats me. Popeye's and Church's should switch places or they should have moved Frostop to that location. Which Wich is coming fast. Can't wait for it to get here. Not to be counted as part of NLR, but On the Border is coming to Warden Rd in Sherwood next to Academy. I wish they had chose to put it next to Buffalo Wild Wings. See, NLR is growing too!!!
  2. Well, there's already one on McCain at Lakewood Village. But yes, downtown would have been a magnificent location. One of the empty shops there could have been renovated. Question? Would this new location be located across from the burger place at Kanis & Shackleford?
  3. Lakewood Village Shopping Center is adding Kirkland's to its line up of stores. It will be right next to the Jo Ann's. I'm guessing they wanted more space. These stores will be located in the old Goody's store. It looks really nice from the outside.
  4. Hello from Arkansas. My understanding is we had a trolley system in the early 1900's. With that being said, they wanted to give you the feel of historic Little Rock by using the old style of the streetcar when bringing the light rail system back. The trolleys are new and up to date, though they look old. I hope that answers your question.
  5. Thanks for the info. You learn something new everyday.
  6. Not McCain Mall news, but very close by. Lakewood Village will get a different type of restaurant addition to the metro. Taste of India Restaurant. It will be between Shoe Carnival and Avenue. The closest thing I can think of is the Genhis Mongolian Grill. Finally something different.
  7. I have some awesome news! I actually spoke to someone from Moses/Tucker and he told there is a planned hotel, multi-purpose multi-story building and about three other projects downtown in the very near future. He didn't go into detail, but stated he was very happy about all the new things coming in to downtown. I stated downtown is growing up. He stated more will come soon as in skyscrapers.
  8. Finally! I font know how many times I've seen wrecks and almost wrecks because of the unsafe set up of the road, lights and no turn lane. I'm sure this would ease traffic congrestion dramatically in the area, lower the accidents and increase pedestrian safety as well. But 2013? Hopefully early 2013.
  9. I would love to see an addition to the skyline. Hopefully the rumor I heard is actually a fact. I know 25 stories doesn't seem like much, but looking at Little Rock's size and at the 300 3rd and River Market towers, they added something to the skyline. We have a low level skyline, but it looks nicer than most cities its size.
  10. Has anyone has anyone heard of any rumors of a new skycraper coming to Downtown Little Rock? Someone told me construction in 3rd Street will be a high rise of 25 stories or more. Not sure if I can believe that because of the limited amount of space and plus it's close to a school.
  11. I really hope that it survives. Maybe after the other stores open and traffic picks up it would get better as far as customers.
  12. Now that's some extreme wishful thinking. All the work their putting into 630, that wouldn't be a thought of option. How would cars get from Downtown to WLR other than Markham, Cantrell, etc?
  13. This is kind of off subject... But has anyone notice the Shoppes at Col. Glenn being built across from The Rave. It's kind of close to Shackleford Crossing. Not sure if it's going to be a big or mid sized center. I saw it today and thought it was interesting.
  14. Wow, that's crazy. At least bathrooms should have been clean. That's a part of having a nice store. And the staff has had some poor training. I did notice that too. I believe the Sherwood, NLR, and WLR (Cantrell) locations are much better as in selection and even size. Shackleford Walmart doesn't even have an automotive section for oil changes and tires. I will say I like the setup of the bakery section wih all the breads and cakes together. To me, the new Walmart should be the best, but has fallen short of it's hype.
