What happened to the Shoppes at North Hills Project

5 posts in this topic

Does anyone know what happened to the Shoppes at North Hills/ Bass Pro project in North Little Rock at the 1-30/I-40 split? It was supposed to be bulit back in 2005. Are there still plans to get the project rolling?

I believe officially, it's still being pursued. Honestly though, the market is already over saturated with available retail space/developments.

The Shoppes would do nothing but put the final nail in the coffin for McCain Mall which would in turn cause that entire area to decline. Bass Pro would be a good fit for the old MM Cohn location at McCain Mall and may bring a much needed revival to the struggling mall.

McCain Mall is suffering almost exclusively due to Simon's neglect...otherwise, with proper marketing and upgrades (facelift), it should be thriving.

I'll second this. There's nothing wrong with McCain that a light remodel wouldn't fix. The mall is dated and poorly maintained and it ruins the atmosphere. Most of the fixes would be easy and probably wouldn't run more than a couple million to give that mall a refreshed atmosphere. Look at Park Plaza for how to really turn things around, or the remodel of the NWA Mall back when that was given a light remodel for an example of using a little bit of money to significantly improve the aesthetics and atmosphere. The McCain location is prime but it will continue to suffer from negative perception until they put some money back into that place. The last thing LR needs is a repeat of University Mall.
