LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) -- The Park Avenue Development area, near I-630 and University Avenue, continues to boom with more building.
"It gives the shopper another reason to come to the area," said Jay Chesshir with Little Rock Regional Chamber of Commerce.
According to the developer's website (bit.ly/NH4eF1), Panera Bread, a Mexican restaurant called Dos Margaritas and a Jared jewelry store are all coming this summer and fall. Also under construction, a 200-unit apartment complex.
"Living right here in a mix-use development is something attractive to a lot of people," said Chesshir.
Chesshir said the new development will help existing businesses.
"They're constantly looking to better themselves," said Chesshir.
Chesshir said the development is also good for Little Rock.
"It will significantly impact the bottom line of the city allowing for additional services," said Chesshir.
