CONWAY, AR | SEPT 16, 2014 – Jim Wilson & Associates, LLC (JWA) continues the development process for its new project, Central Landing, in Conway, Arkansas. There, on September 9, voters approved the issuance of capital improvement bonds for various road projects, including two tied to Central Landing, JWA’s 150 acre, new multi-use development to be highlighted by a Dillard’s anchored life style shopping center.

Central Landing is a 150-acre planned development featuring, in Phase 1, the 250,000 sf lifestyle center, the Shoppes at Central Landing, anchored by Dillard’s department store and to be joined by over forty (40) specialty stores and restaurants. Following the retail phase, development also includes plans for hotels, office buildings and single family residential homes.

The two road projects tied to Central Landing secure first class accessibility to the site, and include an overpass that will cross Interstate 40, connecting Central Landing to the successful Conway Commons shopping area, and a four lane boulevard connecting Central Landing with Oak Street, a thorough fare central to the City’s overall development.

Construction of the road improvements will begin in the Spring of 2015 and is scheduled to be completed within eighteen (18) months.  Central Landing construction will be underway by year end 2015 with a scheduled opening of the lifestyle center in the fall of 2016.
