Builder Announces $65 Million High-Rise Condo Project for Little Rock

LITTLE ROCK, AR - A developer has announced the launch of a $65 million luxury high-rise condominium project for the Riverdale area of Little Rock.

The Ashford is planned for a site on Riverfront Drive about one-and-a-half miles northwest of the city's downtown, close to Alltel Corp.'s headquarters.  Notably, the site is away from the downtown River Market District where numerous other projects have taken shape.

Developer Jim Hathaway of The Hathaway Group said the 14-story tower will include 44 residences that will have views of the Arkansas River and the downtown skyline, as well as parks and other natural features.  Construction is to begin in late summer or early fall, with completion expected in late fall 2009.  Others involved in the project are Humphreys and Partners Architects, civil engineer White-Dalters, and general contractor CDI.
