David's Burgers Delayed in River Market

When last we checked with David “Alan” Bubbus Jr., owner of the David’s Burgers chain, he was hopeful that his outpost in the River Market downtown might open this month. Well, that’s not going to happen. But Bubbus is pushing forward and provided your Whispers staff this update: David’s Burgers has a Board of Adjustment meeting on Monday. “We will get sign approvals, primarily in this Board of Adjustment meeting,” he said. And once those have been obtained, “we’ll be working on finalizing our lease and getting all that completed, and then we should start our remodel.” The restaurant is to occupy the former Boulevard Bread space in the Dickinson Hardware Co. building at the east end of Otten

Bowling Alley, Beer Hall Planned for Downtown Little Rock

A project to transform two adjacent buildings in downtown Little Rock into a bowling alley, bar and beer hall complex has cleared one approval hurdle and faces a couple more but is moving forward, developer Jamie Moses said last week. And in further evidence of a project gathering steam, the McNellie’s Group, the Tulsa hospitality group behind the bowling alley-beer hall complex, has signed a lease for one of the buildings and is close to signing the lease for the other, McNellie’s chief operating officer, Jim O’Connor, told Arkansas Business. The McNellie’s Group plans to open Fassler Hall at 307 E. Capitol Ave. in the former Paragon Printing building and the Dust Bowl Lanes & Lounge at 315

Cromwell Adds $472K 'East Village' Property to Portfolio

Cromwell Architects Engineers of Little Rock has added to its holdings along East Sixth Street, an area targeted for revitalization that its backers are calling "East Village."

New owner for River Market building that housed Clinton store

AXPM has acquired the building at 610 President Clinton Ave. in Little Rock that once housed the Clinton Museum Store. The purchase price was $2.27 million. AXPM and affiliated company Rock Dental Brands will operate from the 24,000-square-foot building, which went on the market in November. The company plans to renovate the building but "will maintain the historical integrity and significance of the building," according to a news release. AXPM and Rock Dental Brands will employ 55 people in the office. Moses Tucker Real Estate brokered the deal. AXPM was founded in 2012 as a practice management partner for orthodontics offices.

Hearing set on new 50-unit apartment complex in downtown Little Rock

Moses Tucker Real Estate appears tonight for a second time seeking a certificate of appropriateness from the Little Rock Historic District Commission for a proposed 50-unit apartment complex at 901 Scott St. A month ago the firm received push-back from the commission, largely because of the size of the Scott Street Flats project. Moses Tucker has redesigned the project, which has garnered approval from the city’s Department of Planning and Development staff for a second time. Projects in the historic district are evaluated on 11 criteria, including mass and scale, building materials, architectural style and general design. Concern expressed to the city’s Planning Department and during the Ma

First Look: Juice Leaf To Open This Week Downtown

Juice bars have soared in popularity over the past year, with several different franchises opening up in the Central Arkansas area recently. Now a new local business is expanding on the juice bar idea in the downtown area. Juice Leaf will open this week, offering fresh-pressed juice, smoothies and some unique items for both breakfast and lunch. We stopped in ahead of Juice Leaf’s grand opening to see what the new place has in store. Juice Leaf is situated on Louisiana Street next to Subway in the space that once held U.S. Pizza express and The Pizza Hole. The space is clean and simply adorned with space for 30­–40 diners. The menu, however, is anything but simple, with more than a dozen juic
