NLR West of Argenta Along the Riverfront


Recommended Posts

At this time there are three major projects for the area with one under development and the other two in the design stages. 

Smarthouse Way just west of the Broadway Bridge will be made up of a hotel, office space and 200 apartment units.

Arkopolis is the name of a 40 acre development planned by the Monde Group west of Rockwater Village.

Rockwater Village continues to develop. It contains the 264 unit Riverside at Rockwater apartment complex, the soon to be expanded Residences at Rockwater single home development(39 lots), the under construction Porches at Rockwarter single home development(15 lots) and  another single family unnamed development across the street from the Residences(80 lots). Also the development contains the Rockwater Marina and at the corner of Rockwater and Pike will be a 50 unit apartment  with plans to open in 2019.

Looking forward to 2019 when the city of NLR  begins a project to redevelop Pike Avenue from this point north to Pershing by adding landscaping and making it more pedestrian friendly.

Phase I(92 units) of the Esplanade District is now open and leasing. Last week Phase 2 plans were released for 5.5 acres of the district. It will consist of 4 four-story apartment buildings containing 167 units. One of the buildings will also be the home of a rooftop bar. Construction is scheduled to start next year.

Also, next year could see some commercial development of property located between Rockwater and Pike Ave. by the developers of Rockwater. Just north of the Porches at Rockwater a Rogers developer is constructing 11 townhouses on 4th Street.

Top Golf doesn't franchise.  They pick their own projects.  You can want a Top Golf at some place, talk to them, entice them, but if they aren't interested, than there's nothing else you can do.  Maybe Top Golf was talked with in regards to this location and they passed, so the developers went on to other options.

I have been told by more than one person that Top Golf was/is interested in Little Rock, and backed off last summer because of the politics about the proposed site (War Memorial).  Candidly, this site is arguably better.  It's certainly just as visible while also being less controversial.
