Cromwell, Moses Tucker See New Life at 6th and Shall

Cromwell Architects Engineers and Moses Tucker Real Estate are working together on what the firms call a new urban renewal and redevelopment project in downtown Little Rock. It was initiated by Cromwell's purchase of five tracts at 6th and Shall streets that make up the former Stebbins and Roberts properties. The land lies east of Interstate 30 and just south of Heifer International's world headquarters. "Forty years ago, when we built our building at Markham and Spring Streets, the area was in need of a major redevelopment effort," Dan Fowler, Cromwell's director of finance and business development, said in a news release. "Our building, along with investments in the Camelot Hotel, Excelsio

East LR area sized up as River Market echo

Moses Tucker Real Estate, the firm largely responsible for redeveloping a riverfront area of downtown Little Rock that became the River Market District, and Cromwell Architects announced plans Friday to replicate that success with a sizable mixed-use development east of Interstate 30. The targeted area is primarily industrial. It's being called a River Market District with "grit." "From a feel perspective, what's important to us is that the neighborhood maintains its identity and heritage as a gritty warehouse community," said Dan Fowler, chief operating officer at Cromwell. "We want to look closely at the value of those existing buildings and the grit that they have and hopefully push to re

bfonics Growing Quickly, Wants to Help Build 'Smart Cities'

Faces of Arkansas - Kendall Sandifer of Fringe Clothing

It is a big year for fringe, the 70s throwback trim and the chic boutique that is expanding its way across Arkansas. Fringe, the trim, is on trend this fall for its ability to transition easily from edgy and rock and roll, to country and western, to bohemian and flowy. Not unlike its namesake, Fringe Clothing is not married to just one style. According to co-owner Kendall Sandifer, the growing boutique is “all over the place because I’m so open-minded when it comes to clothes.” When you walk into any of Fringe’s three stores across Arkansas, you can expect to find moto pants next to bell bottoms, crop tops next to oversize comfy sweaters and, if you’re in the Little Rock shop, vintage jewelr

Centuries of Change: The History of Downtown Little Rock & North Little Rock's Argenta

The downtown areas in North Little Rock and Little Rock have followed similar arcs of development. Both came from humble beginnings after being discovered by explorers on the Arkansas River — a border which both share — to be developed into blossoming destinations. In the 1960s, urban renewal projects on both sides of the river had negative effects that lasted for decades, but both areas are now on the rebound and once again flourishing. Opposite Little Rock In the early 1800s, the land across the Arkansas River from Little Rock was simply known as Opposite Little Rock and was generally used as a terminal for ferry travel across the river. What is now known as North Little Rock, was then a p

Living the High Life in Downtown Little Rock & Argenta

The recent surge in the popularity of condos and lofts among construction companies and commercial property owners has brought many added lifestyle options and a new look to downtown Little Rock and Argenta. At 18 and 20 floors respectively, 300 Third Tower and the River Market Tower downtown have been the most noticeable changes. Not only did they amplify the skyline, they also further injected a residential element into the downtown district, which area leaders continue to recreate as a bustling urban area. With downtown’s hordes of jobs and its large concentration of entertainment and cultural venues, the allure of downtown condo living is apparent. Located in North Little Rock’s Argenta,
