  1. Hey, I was trying to find the plans for the Hyatt Place but can't. Is it too early for planning documents on this one? Im glad that there will be a pretty good cluster of hotels in that area.
  2. I think the zoning change near the Walmart Neighborhood Market is for the Avid Hotel. According to the Flyer article the Avid Hotel is going in behind Planet Fitness.
  3. Del Frisco's Double Eagle Steakhouse is actually the flagship concept and Del Frisco's Grille is the faster, cheaper concept (relatively speaking). I have seen both concepts in many major markets (NYC, Chicago, Boston, DC, Nashville, Denver, Houston) so its a shame we couldn't support a location in Central Arkansas but if the rumors are true I bet Ruth's Chris will do great. The location in Rogers has always been busy when I've been so hopefully that bodes well for a Little Rock location.
  4. I saw a news article about a new craft beer pub chain that is expanding across the US. I went to the website and sure enough there is a location planned for NWA, Bentonville more specifically. Looks like it will be the 11th location in the nation. https://growlerusa.com/craft-beer-pubs/
  5. ftp://ftp.accessfayetteville.org/published/Development Review/West Avenue Lot/Draft Resolution.pdf Here's the link to the plans.
  6. oh my! comreguy, share what you know!
  7. I will guess Aloft, LA fitness and Chuys
  8. Looks like a 2nd raising canes is coming to MLK in Fayetteville ftp://ftp.accessfayetteville.org/published/Development%20Review/01_Technical%20Plat%20Review/Plans/16-5302%20C11%20Utility%20Plan%20(LSD-Raising%20Cane's).pdf
  9. Looks like Fayetteville will be the new home of the NWA Volkswagen dealership. It will be next to Crain Hyundai
  10. Exactly! All the Planning and City Council members say they want density/smart growth and then vote against it in every way possible. How about some ordinances that encourage taller buildings, less surface lots, more parking garages, smaller roads, better sidewalks, more bike lanes and trails, and better parks. But after all, complaining on here isn't going to do anything and we will still end up with what I can only hope will be a Bass Pro Shops and Outlet center on the Van Asche extension. Welcome to Fatevull /s
  11. Fayetteville DOES NOT need an area like Pinnacle hills, which is the epitome of sprawl. We need mixed use, tight-knit, dense neighborhoods. I think once the new apartments are built in this area the city should try to differentiate the Steele/Van Asche intersection area from the rest of the Joyce/Mall area. Make an area desirable to renters and the developers will follow with more apartments and retail. I wish something slightly similar to Frisco Square, in Frisco, Texas, could be build somewhere in the Uptown area, maybe on the Van Asche extension. http://www.friscosquare.com/index.htm Anot
  12. The easiest way for NWA to move forward with transit would be Bus Rapid Transit. If done right, BRT can have the same comfort and speed as a Light rail system while costing far less to implement. I think NWA transit needs could be covered with four BRT lines, Downtown Fayetteville to Downtown Rogers via 71, Downtown Rogers to Downtown Bentonville via Walnut/Walton, Prairie Grove to Downtown Fayetteville via 62, Downtown Bentonville to XNA to Downtown Springdale. There could also be a few future lines like Centerton to Downtown Bentonville and Wedington, Gregg, and MLK in Fayetteville could als
  13. Its because Dave and Busters gives away things like game consoles and other prizes over(?) $500 dollars and the previous law didn't allow that
  14. I think the idea behind this bill is it sets up the possibility for a casino in Pulaski county. Of course it doesn't legalize casino gambling, but the part of the bill that mentions "navigable river" screams riverboat casino to me. With this bill in place all they would have to do is legalize casino gambling.
  15. I think its been mentioned here before, the old USA Drug will be the first franchise location of Tacos 4 Life based out of Conway. Should be a nice addition to Midtown
