The Little Rock Tech Park Authority Board is still looking at three potential tech park sites as relatively equal rivals following their meeting Wednesday afternoon.
The Tech Park Authority Board’s meeting yielded no clear favorites from three sites in its afternoon meeting. Board Chair Mary Good attributed part of the indecision to an engineer’s report that didn’t find any site particularly stronger than the others.
Arkansas economic development officials say what was once the vacant Target Distribution Center in Maumelle is now bustling with activity for another retailer.
Dillard’s Incorporated is using the facility in Maumelle to ship merchandise from online orders all over the country. The department store chain completely renovated the 850,000 square foot center and it has space for extra growth. Julie Bull with Dillard’s says the company wanted to honor its Arkansas roots and Maumelle proved to be the perfect site for what has been dubbed the “Internet Fulfillment Center.”
