Three real estate companies seek Tech Park job

Posted By on Thu, Dec 5, 2013 at 3:27 PM

Three real estate companies have responded to the Little  Rock  Technology Park Authority's RFQ for "site investigation and negotiation services" on properties downtown, where the park board voted last month by a squeaky 4-3 to locate. 

Moses Tucker Real Estate Jeff Yates with Ark Commercial and Investment Real Estate   and  Flake and Kelley Commercial   have submitted proposals  in  response  to the Authority board's request for qualifications.  (The  Flake of Flake and Kelley is not board member Dickson  Flake, but John Flake, Dickson Flake's brother. The proposal by the firm says the  work will  be  managed  by Hank Kelley, Jim Dailey and Bill Pendergrist.)

The company chosen  will work with  Charles  Dilks, the board's consultant. Dilks does not favor downtown, so it may be a contentious partnership.

The board also released  a congratulating it on its decision to locate downtown. Included are emails from John Bacon, principal  at eStem schools, saying the location will benefit students; Doug and Sheree Meyer, owners of Bennett's Military Supplies at Third and Main streets, calling the decision "courageous"; Jimmy Moses of Moses Tucker, congratulating chair Mary Good on the board's "foresight" in its selection (which Good opposed), and others.

The board will discuss the proposals at its meeting at 4 p.m. Wednesday, Dec. 11, which will be held on the mezzanine of the Capital Hotel. Valet parking will be  free. Casual dress acceptable.
