    Uptown Fayetteville Development Area

    Thank you @laketrout Fayetteville Flyer has an article as well. Looks like it will be a 6 story building if the photo in the article is correct. Link:Hyatt Place Fayetteville

    Uptown Fayetteville Development Area

    I have not seen the plans either but just looking at other Hyatt Place Hotels online that are about the same size I assume this one will be similar. Plans should surface soon.

    Uptown Fayetteville Development Area

    A couple of updates on upcoming developments in Uptown. City planners are working on a 78,000 sq foot Hyatt Place Hotel that is planned for the lot on Van Asche just across from the Wood Stone Pizza restaurant. It will likely be a 4-6 story hotel with parking. Also the lot just north of Bassett Furniture may be the home of a strip style retail center with an adjacent office building in front. Otherwise lots continue to fill up in this area of the City.

    Restaurant Development in NW Arkansas

    Looking through the City of Fayetteville planning projects site and it looks like Fayetteville will be getting a Torchy's Tacos on MLK. This is the same location that a second Panera Bread was supposed to be located. Not sure what happened on that. I have not personally been to one but they are scattered in the mostly larger cities in Texas, Oklahoma and one in Denver. Here is a link to the website: Torchy's Tacos

    You are right Nick! I read Fitness One for some reason instead of Planet Fitness. Thanks for that.

    Fayetteville, Arkansas

    A new hotel concept may be coming to West Fayetteville soon. Avid Hotels (part of the IHG company) is looking to build a 5 story hotel just off the I-49 and Wedington exit. This will be the first in the state and possibly one of very few in the United States, as they currently only have one in Oklahoma City. They look similar to a Tru by Hilton with very modern features and open lobby. There have been rumors of a hotel in this location since Cross Church and Fitness One opened 8-9 months ago. Another area off of of Wedington and Salem just East of the Walmart Neighborhood Market is trying to make a change in zoning to allow hotels. So don't be surprised if another hotel is announced in this area in the coming months. Article from the Fayetteville Flyer.

    Restaurant Development in NW Arkansas

    The former Zaxby's restaurant on N. College will soon be the home of a new to the area breakfast/lunch chain called First Watch. Nearest locations are in Tulsa and Springfield, MO. Here is a link to the website: First Watch Also CJ's Butcher Boy will be adding a Fayetteville location at 3484 W. Wedington. This is a chain out of Russellville and they already have many locations in Central Arkansas (Dave's) and a couple in the River Valley (Patrick's). Here is the story from The Fayetteville Flyer: CJ's Butcher Boy

    NWA Growth

    Below are the new population estimates for July 1, 2017. So you can guess about where they sit as of May 2018. Fayetteville should take over as Arkansas' second largest city sometime in 2019/2020 assuming the numbers continue to be close to what they are today. 2017 Population, Growth Bentonville: 49,298 Added 2,281 (4.9%) Conway: 65,782 Added 928 (1.4%) Fayetteville: 85,257 Added 1,930 (2.3%) Fort Smith: 88,037 Added 362 (0.4%) Jonesboro: 75,866 Added 1,183 (1.6%) Little Rock: 198,606 Added 299 (0.2%) North Little Rock: 65,911 Fell 155 (-0.2%) Rogers: 66,430 Added 1,419 (2.2%) Springdale: 79,599 Added 1,180 (1.5%)

    University of Arkansas Projects

    The University has a page set up where you can watch all the current construction projects. You can also time lapse them. Here is the link to anyone that is interested: Construction Cameras
  10. Looks like the Arkansas Dept of Transportation has decided against the first two proposals for the I-49/MLK intersection. They presented a new option using a SPUI which is a single point urban interchange. Sounds like it will be a bit more complex than this one with multiple roundabouts further south. Here is an animated example of one:

    Sixth Street/MLK - Farmington Area

    According to the Fayetteville Flyer, Dunkin Donuts on MLK has closed and Slim Chickens will be moving into that building. This will be the 5th location in City for the Fayetteville based chain. Also looks like a 2nd Dairy Queen will be moving into the old Hardee's building on MLK. Construction has started on the first location on the City's east side near Mission and Crossover.

    For you Fayetteville people, like myself, the City has put together an interactive map of upcoming planning projects. It shows rezoning requests, annexations, and all of those sort of items. You can click on them and get more detail of what will be coming though the Planning Commission, Subdivision committees etc. Fayetteville Planning Projects

    Your NWA Wishlist

    Certainly not a true IMAX but I am still glad to have it. I love the idea of the UARK Theater but parking is always a hassle down there so not sure if that will work. I have not been to one of Malco's bowling lanes but I would like to see that here as well.

    Your NWA Wishlist

    Just came across one of my "Wish List" items for Fayetteville/NW Arkansas. Malco Razorback 16 Theater is appears to be sneaking in an IMAX theater with the current renovations. The IMAX is supposed to be completed for the new Star Wars movie this December. They are also updating the theater with luxury recliners, and a bar and grill area. Recently the AMC Fiesta Square 16 Theater renovated with new seating and a bar. Still waiting on the independent theater on Dickson to get moving... Here is a link to the article about the new IMAX from Malco's Facebook: IMAX

    Infill projects in downtown Fayetteville

    Yes and you can be assured that those idiots will be there to protest any taller buildings in the city. I just don't get these people. They just don't have any concept of land cost and needed density for projects to be cost effective. A 6-8 story building would work great there and the value of their property would continue to climb.
