Little Rock Projects List

Recommended Posts


Development update.

The Enclave at the Riverfront has announced they will add eight condos to their project. Also, the cookie factory is gone and now construction can began.

The City of NLR will hold a public meeting Thursday night on the ballpark design. It now has the look of a train station. The design that was in the Times of NLR was sort of dull. They should look at the train station in LR for pointers.

More pics, thanks Skirby. It certainly looks like it will be a nice development and also in an interesting area. I'm curious to what that part of town will look like 10 years from now.

I must say, even amidst the dark clouds, that Little Rock skyline looks great. Ok, so I'm biased...

The Residences at Building 5 has been announced as a new condo project for LR. The project calls for 12 condos for Building 5 which is located next to the Doubletree Hotel. Five floors will be added to the building. The price for condos will top out at close to $2 million. This project is across the river from the new ballpark. Also, developers are going before the Planning Commission with the $42 million Lighthouse Point project. The project will include 220 apartments and a 206-slip Marina at Lighthouse Point. The development will be East of the Clintion Library on the river.

I thought you might want to see the Residences at Building 5 before the redevelopment. This is from the NRL side. It is the red building to the left of the white hotel across the river.

Any ideas on what might be done with the Rye building?

As stated before the Rye building has been purchased by a group which includes John Gaudin. Mr. Gaudin is also behind Argenta Place. The Rhy building is located on the next block to the southwest of the Argenta Place project in NLR. It is also only a block away from the new ballpark. It will be interesting to see what happens.

Is Joey Lauren Adams doing something with that cool old Spanish-style building on Main in Argenta? I've heard rumors about that for a while.

I think the Spanish-style building on Main has been redone. I think it contains offices and a apartment. Further north where there is a police substation a condo project has been announced. It will contain 16 condos and two apartments and office space, to be constructed in two phases. There will be a small private park on either end.

The following is a reproduction of a billboard put up to advertise Argenta Place. This shows a different rendering than before.

Goodness, that is awful.

I hope they don't build that horrible looking structure and the original design is indeed what it will look like.

The final design plans for the ballpark should be available tomorrow.

The ballpark should start construction with design and contractors being approved. There has been some changes. The ballpark will take up most if not all of the property with nothing being left for other developments by Stephens. It looks like a deal was made between the city and Stephens for this to happen. Stephens will now have a part in the development of the seven acres across Broadway. The developers of Marinas North will have 180 days to develop their plans for the five acres on the river.

I'm sure everyone's already up on this, but the RiverRail trolly line will have phase 2 completed by November '06. This will extend the route east to the Clinton Library and Hiefer International Headquarters.

Over 180,000 passengers boarded the trolleys during their first full year of operation (40,000 more than projected). Since the trolleys began operation, over $100 million in development has been announced along the track.

Any photo updates would be appreciated... (I guess that means you skirby :shades: )

Yeah you guys might be waiting for quite a while if you're wanting pics of Little Rock from me. :D But hey you guys also have GSCullum. But back to the topic, after they extend to route eastward where would you like to see the line go?

I'll get some pictures up when things get going. If an when they build a Phase III it will be in NLR. Mayor Hayes has stated that the route will depend on development. A loop on down Broadway West of the new ballpark to Riverfront then East of Alltel Arena and back to Broadway. For LR I would like to see it extended West down Markham to the Train Station and branch out from there. One branch to Hillcrest and the other to Riverdale. They could do like some other cities and build parking decks along the line and offer free rides for those who use the decks.

That sounds like a good idea, in fact I wish other areas in Arkansas would do something similar to that also.
