Large Jonesboro building has new name and new owners

JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) – One of the biggest buildings in Jonesboro now has a new name and is under new ownership.

What was once the MBC Plaza on Highland Drive is now the 2400 Building and is owned by Haag Brown Commercial Real Estate & Development and Colliers International in Little Rock.

Joshua Brown of Haag Brown stated in a news release:

"Our partnership and ongoing relationship with Colliers International in Little Rock led to our direct involvement in the purchase and re-branding of this building. We have big plans for this multi-story development and are looking forward to watching our vision become reality. We have always had a good relationship with Kevin Huchingson and Isaac Smith from Colliers. Their firm manages over 14,000,000 SF of commercial real estate. Our immediate plans are to start the largest, most efficient, and innovative commercial property management company in the Northeast Arkansas Trade area."

The building was sold to the new owners after being foreclosed in August.

Current businesses and offices staying in the building include Region's Bank, the FBI, Congressman Rick Crawford and Raymond James.

According to Haag Brown, there will be over 15,000 square feet available for lease.
