Theres nothing at all for Arkansas anywhere on here, and Im pretty sure that Im the only person on the forum that lives in the state, but Im going to make a thread anywaya. Theres a lot going on in various cities around the state. Ill try and update it on a regular basis. It will be mostly stuff from Little Rock, Conway, Russellville, Ft. Smith, and northwest Arkansas.
Heres one of the best developments happening in the state. The Village at Hendrix, its a very dense 1920s styled community adjoining Hendrix College, one of the nations finest liberal arts colleges located in Conway. The project has been under construction for many years now and just recently theyve finished the two roundabouts and have finished small sections of the residential areas on the property. Also, the Southwestern Energy headquarters building is basically done now, and theyre just adding the final touches and the company will be moving in soon.
The Village at Hendrix - a new, walkable community - is under construction in Conway, Arkansas, right next door to the Hendrix College campus. Our New Urbanist community was planned by world-renowned town planners and architects Andres Duany and Elizabeth Plater-Zyberk, who developed Seaside, Fla. The Village is a traditional neighborhood with a firm commitment to green building principles. People of all ages and backgrounds can enjoy being part of a community where the streetscapes become our outdoor living room
Heres some pictures of the development from a few months ago, I have more recent pics but my computer blew up and I have no way to get them off my camera.
This building is number 3 above the 2 on the above map. The entire project is huge and very well detailed.
About a month ago, a Panera Bread opened up in this building and is doing very well. The upper floors of both these buildings are used as apartments for students attending Hendrix.
