    Interesting. I wouldn't rule them out of the market, and that's a high-profile site, but I would question that immediate location as not being in one of the more active hot-spots. I would think the Cantrell/Pleasant Ridge, Chenal Promenade or even Outlets of Little Rock site might be more appealing.

    Aren't they making a single-point urban interchange at Rodney Parham (not to be confused with what's happening at Cantrell and I-430)? I may have the name wrong, but the stated a few years ago that the overpass was going to be modified to some new interchange type that was unique to the state.

    Do you really know if it's worse? I'm not arguing...I'm asking a legitimate question. Unless you have comparative data, it's impossible to say.

    The point of the article is that there are more openings than closings this year. Either way, restaurants close EVERY year. Is 2018 statistically different from a typical year? I’m not sure we can categorically say it is “declining.” Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    I know you're just reporting the facts of this effort, so this isn't directed at you - but pardon me while I roll my eyes at the prospect of this GIANT SUBURBAN area being given some sort of urban identity. I mean, I'm all for improving that area of town, but it seems a bit cheeky to pretend it's something that it is not. The physical area is much too large and the density much too low for this to ever gel into some sort of district.

    Tia's....hadn't thought about that place in a while!
  7. I’m not following your math; they look equivalent to me. Little Rock MSA is close to 750,000 and Tulsa is close to 1,000,000, or 33% larger. When I look at July 2018, total passengers for LIT is 207,000 and TUL is about 290,000, or about 30%, pretty close. Either way, I think both airports tend to punch above their weight (especially TUL with OKC so close). To your point about how many more destinations TUL has, that’s simply a product of the market being ±30% larger, right? Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  8. Traffic jumped 10.5 percent last month compared with August 2017. It's the biggest percentage increase so far in 2018. There were 188,153 passengers this August compared with 170,192 in the same month in last year. The previous largest monthly percentage increase the month before, when passenger traffic increased 8.65 percent. The latest increase has pushed traffic 4.31 percent higher in the first eight months of 2018 compared to the same period last year, for a total of 1,411,470 passengers (compared to 1,353,137 in the first eight months of 2017).
  9. I could see them adding was anticipated as a corporate route for Entergy. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. This is great news! More destinations are always welcomed, and of course, will result in increased traffic/boardings overall. p.s. I remember when Delta had direct LIT-MCO flights in the mid-2000's (before the financial crisis) fact, Delta had also announced direct LIT-MSY (New Orleans), but it never happened because Katrina hit before the service started.
  11. Cool info, but the areas are separated by 200 miles and share virtually no common market. I don’t get the logic in a zero-sum game (i.e. only one or the other). Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. People always compare these two markets like it’s a one-way street, but need I remind everyone that there are a LOT of restaurants and retailers in LR that are NOT in NWA - that they wish they had...also a product of demographics and sheer numbers (larger population).

  13. ...that being said, I just read an article a few weeks ago (WSJ?) about the massive INCREASE in consumer spending at restaurants across the country. It is up TWENTY FIVE PERCENT this year. Gotta factor that in, somehow....

    A much more important population metric is the total MSA (rather than city population proper) - in that regard, Chattanooga is the exact same size as NWA (±528,000), and 200,000 less than LR-NLR-Conway MSA.

    No, the Aloft is going on the north end of Chenal Promenade, across Rahling Road next door to the (current) Bank OZK headquarters. If I understand your description, this development is going in farther east next to the Chenal Kroger, correct?
