Simmons Bank buys Acxiom building in downtown Little Rock

Arkansas Business reports that Simmons First National Bank
of Pine Bluff has acquired the Acxiom headquarters building in the River Market neighborhood.

Acxiom was only occupying a small portion of the building and those employees will move to Conway, where the company originally had headquarters. The purchase — price undisclosed — will consolidate some 200 Simmons employees at other locations in Little Rock.

The sale is a boon to local governments, particularly city schools. The city floated a tax-free bond issue for building construction and the deal included a total tax abatement as an incentive for the development downtown. With the sale back to a private party, the property should return to the tax rolls.
