This mixed-use project is located in the City of North Little Rock, Arkansas. Uniquely positioned northeast of downtown Little Rock along the northern shore of the Arkansas River, the site is adjacent to the landfall of the former Rock Island Railroad Bridge and the William Jefferson Clinton Presidential Center and Park. The proposed development consists of two parcels. The western parcel contains an 11-story tower with structured parking for general office, residential, and retail uses, while the eastern parcel contains a 7-story hotel building with structured parking lined by conference room spaces and a restaurant. The proposed development also contains a centrally-located linear urban plaza for public use and access to the Arkansas River, as well as a future city riverfront park.
Working with the general program and the client, the design creates a stronger connection to the river and takes advantage of the site’s special relationship to the Clinton Library and adjacent pedestrian bridge.
