This week’s Arkansas Business is online. Among the highlights:
Dillard’s Inc. of Little Rock board member R. Brad Martin of Memphis is just pleased as punch to see J.C. Watts back on the board.
Developer Jim Strode wants to jump-start his new Park Avenue development in midtown so bad that he’s given prospective anchor tenant Target Corp. an 8.5-acre section of land for free.
Construction costs have fallen so low that you’d think everyone and their mother would be lining to building something. So far, only the government is biting. And that’s done little to spur the construction sector and offset its job losses.
Remember all those condos and townhouses in central Arkansas? All that’s left to do now is sell them.
