Acxiom looking to sell its downtown office tower

Arkansas Business reports
that Acxiom is looking for a buyer for its 12-story downtown office building. Reason: It needs only a fraction of the space, maybe a floor worth.

Potential buyers unknown.

Too bad this wasn't known when the city embarked on spending more than $20 million in taxpayer money for just the start of building buying, demolition and remodeling — with far more grandiose ideas in the offing — for the vaunted Little Rock Tech Park.

Isn't Acxiom a tech company? Don't you reckon it's wired for data transmission?

An Acxiom spokesman said this about a need for less space:

“associates have become more mobile, for example, we need fewer ‘dedicated’ workspaces and more ‘as-needed’ workspaces, conference rooms, and collaboration zones.”
Another reason why I have a hard time understanding why the tech park geniuses in Little Rock have been more concerned with real estate than ideas and venture capital.

    Great piece in Washington Post on the budget crisis in Louisiana. Big tax cuts and corporate welfare will do that to a state, particularly to a state whose previous governor, Republican Bobby Jindal, refused to join the Obamacare-funded Medicaid expansion. There's a lesson there for Arkansas.
