The Mullenix Land Co. (that would be Ted Mullenix, the lobbyist and former legislator) plans to build a four-story building at 204 S. Bishop Street, just off Third Street. It would have mixed uses, including a top floor penthouse with fireplace and balcony to look across the way at the State Capitol. It will be a fine place to entertain legislators, since Mullenix will surely find a way to get around the supposed constitutional prohibition against wining and dining legislators. BYO OK, I guess. A top-secret floor plan that outlines uses of the various rooms in the new building came in through the transom at the door to the art director's office. Above, is what we know so far.
The Little Rock Parks and Recreation Department recently cut 33 hackberry trees along West Markham Street, from the War Memorial Golf Course clubhouse to Monroe Street, trees they plan to replace with 60 non-native Chinese pistaches.
