    Rogers, Arkansas

    Ricks Bakery coming to Rogers! Such great news as Benton County definitely has a gap in bakeries in the area. https://talkbusiness.net/2017/10/fayetteville-landmark-ricks-bakery-is-expanding-to-rogers/

    Yes, some of Rogers is pedestrian friendly (downtown, the mall) but Pleasant Grove and Pinnacle area really are not. We need more 4-5 story buildings with retail on the ground floor. Pinnacle has the potential to be another downtown this area for Rogers if they do it right.

    Finally, Rogers is going more pedestrian friendly. Pinnacle area has potential to be more than chain restaurants and strip centers. It looks to be a mixed use development in Pinnacle right in front of the pinnacle country club. I hope to see some new stores to the market. Looks like an upscale hotel is coming in the development along with multi family housing. Maybe finally a Westin, Full Service Marriott, or Full Service Hilton? article: http://talkbusiness.net/2017/09/100-million-new-urban-project-coming-to-pinnacle-hills/

    Pinnacle Hills Promenade

    I saw this hotel is coming. This is great news. However, why are developers repeating the same type of hotels in the area. We still don't have a full service Marriott, Hilton, Westin, Hyatt, etc. I believe we need another full service hotel on the scale of Embassy Suites in the area.

    Northwest Arkansas Regional Airport (XNA)

    I have heard that AA is has been taking over space intentionally at XNA to block a potential discount airliner from coming in. I don't understand why the board at XNA just pushes back. XNA is losing so many travelers to Tulsa. I'm surprised Walmart hasn't put their foot down and said they demand one for lower prices on Biz travel. All in all, there is no reason our air ticket prices should be as high as they are. And we need a discount airliner pronto!

    Restaurant Development in NW Arkansas

    I am somewhat encouraged that the Promenade Mall is an outdoor mall so there is much more flexibility in the types of retailers at the mall. With that being said, there aren't that many retailers that are just super exciting. If the center had an Apple Store, J.Crew, Anthropologie, H&M, Nordstrom Rack, Dave & Busters, etc, it would add to the appeal and get people excited. The Banana Republic store is so small and isn't really appealing. I do think they could do so much more to help the mall. If JC Penneys goes out of business, it would be a great spot for H&M to come into. H&M is opening in Little Rock. My take is that if PF Changs can make it here, then Cheesecake Factory should be fine.

    Your NWA Wishlist

    I keep thinking I could see it centrally located near Springdale near Arvest Ballpark. They could create an entertainment complex around the ballpark. Arvest Ballpark Top Golf Dave & Busters Bass ProShop Outlet Mall Something like that could create a destination that includes entertainment/shopping/dining for the area.

    Great news. TopGolf looking at NWA to expand. This is very needed from a recreational standpoint. http://www.prnewswire.com/news-releases/topgolf-targeting-more-markets-for-expansion-300237063.html

    Pinnacle Hills West

    Totally agree Comreguy. We are missing retailers that would be a huge asset like Apple Store, J.Crew, Anthropologie, Crate & Barrel, Nordstrom Rack, Trader Joes, H&M, Dave & Busters (Little Rock is getting one). I hope to see some of these show up soon.

    Pinnacle Hills West

    The District at Pinnacle Hills is starting next to the Walmart Neighborhood Market in Pinnacle area. I am hoping for a full service hotel like a Westin, Marriott, or Hilton. Also, would be good to get new restaurants/retail to the area we don't already have in this area instead of repeat retailers. I am also still in hopes for a Promenade #2 with additional retailers. I still can't believe we don't have an Apple Store in the area, especially with the UofA so close. http://www.nwabusinessjournal.com/14842/whisinvests-district-at-pinnacle-hills-takes-off

    Fayetteville, Arkansas

    I am annoyed by that as well. A gas station is very needed right there. I would love to see a gas station and small strip center attached. And of course the city of Fayetteville would screw that up. They have no business sense and no sense running the local government. Boot them out!

    Does anyone know what is going on the corner of Mt. Comfort and Shiloh near the Porter Road exit? I know at one time they were planning a gas station, but I thought that fell through. If anyone knows, I would love to know. Thanks!

    Uptown Fayetteville Development Area

    Nick, I love the Gulch in Nashville. That is definitely what I would love to see in Fayetteville. It would be very cool to have another type of Dickson Street area in Uptown for young professionals who are not interested in the college scene. However, I am afraid it will be more sprawl and strip centers. Pinnacle could be so much better if they planned for a Gulch type development.

    Uptown Fayetteville Development Area

    Fayetteville won't attract any major campuses or companies until they decide to actually focus on it. Stupid ordinances and dividing the city over social issues are not helping the city in any way positive. They are getting smoked by other cities such as Springdale, Rogers, and Bentonville. They can build all they want, but they have to have businesses that want to be there. Rogers Pinnacle area is just booming. If Fayetteville ever got its act together, I would love to see more mixed use type of things like you see in Nashville or Dallas. Highrises with condos above and retail below. I would like to see more of a planned development rather than a bunch of strip centers and car lots.
