  • ON HOLD: Jacob Chi talks about delayed Aloft hotel project.

Channel 11 spoke with Jacob Chi, leader of Chi Developers, who confirms the project to put an Aloft hotel in the old Boyle Building at Capitol and Main is on indefinite hold, as we've indicated several times previously.

Chi puts the blame on the loss of tax credits another developer had expected for the neighboring M.M. Cohn building, which supposedly has stymied that project. Chi says the Cohn investment helps assure the success of a hotel project.

The Cohn Building project is one of several delayed by developer Scott Reed, one — a condo project — years in the incomplete stage. Arkansas Business detailed them recently.

  • Trump immigration protest at LR: Quick and fierce

    It was not even 24 hours ago that Sophia Said, director of the Interfaith Center; City Director Kathy Webb and others decided to organize a protest today of Donald Trump's executive order that has left people from Muslim countries languishing in airports or unable to come to the US at all — people with visas, green cards,a  post-doc graduate student en route to Harvard, Google employees abroad, families. I got the message today before noon; others didn't find out until it was going on. But however folks found out, they turned out in huge numbers, more than thousand men, women and children, on the grounds of the state Capitol to listen to speakers from all faiths and many countries.
