Pet resort coming to College Avenue

Staff photo

The old Big 8 Tire building on College Avenue will soon have some new tenants.

According to Talk Business and Politics, the building (more recently occupied by Daisy Exchange resale shop) at 2407 N. College Ave. will be home to the second location of Hound’s Lounge Pet Resort & Spa. The company purchased the 8,868-square-foot building for $550,000 last fall.

The business, operated by Mandy Marshall and Justin Harris, operates a location in Little Rock, and according to their website, offers dog boarding services in a “luxury pet hotel” offering “an exciting vacation for dogs.”

Rates range from $19/day for day care, and $39.99/night for overnight stays.

Mountain bike skills park coming to The Jones Center campus

A pump track, a track that uses an up and down “pumping” motion to propel the bicycle forward instead of pedaling, will be part of the design for the new Mountain bike skills park coming to The Jones Center campus

Progressive Bike Ramps

A new place to test out your sweet mountain biking skills is coming to Northwest Arkansas soon.

The Jones Trust this week announced plans to construct a new 2.75 acre Mountain Bike Skills Park on the campus of The Jones Center in Springdale, thanks to a $1.1 million grant awarded from the Walton Family Foundation. The new park will be located across Emma Avenue from the Springdale Municipal Airport, and will (appropriately) called “The Runway.”

“With the growing interest in mountain biking and cycling in NWA, “The Runway” will become the premier place for families to learn the skills required to enjoy the beautiful trails in the NWA Wilderness,” said Ed Clifford, Jones Trust CEO. “The venue will be world-class and become another addition to the recreation amenities already offered at The Jones Center.”

The park, to be designed by Ozark Off Road Cyclists and Crafton Tull & Associates with feedback from several area cycling groups, will include three skill development lines, a pump track, a kids bicycle playground, and a pavilion.

No ground-breaking date on the project has been announced to date, but we’ll keep you posted.

Star Wars Pub Crawl set for Jan. 27 on Dickson Street

Star Wars fans, get ready to take over Dickson Street.

Some local folks are planning a Star Wars Pub Crawl for the evening of Jan. 27.

According to the Facebook page for the event, would-be crawlers are encouraged to put on a Storm Trooper costume, Yoda mask, or some other sweet Star Wars Costume, and get ready to get weird.

The evening will include lightsaber battles, a costume contest, and prizes for folks who complete the crawl. So far, it looks like there are six locations to visit on Dickson Street and the square, but it sounds like more will be added.

Participation is $10 for an arm band, or $20 for VIPs.

For a bit more info, check out the Facebook event.

Waxahatchee coming to Smoke & Barrel Tavern

Waxahatchee / Courtesy photo

Alabama band and Merge records artist Waxahatchee is coming to Fayetteville this winter.

The band is coming to Smoke & Barrel Tavern for a show on Thursday, Feb. 22.

Waxahatchee was created by songwriter Katie Crutchfield, and if the name sounds familiar, it’s probably because their fourth album Out in the Storm was on just about everyone’s best albums of the year list in 2017.

The record has been called Crutchfield’s “most autobiographical and honest album to date,” as a “self-reflective anchor in the story of both her songwriting and her life.”

It was named the No. 1 album for 2017 on Uproxx, No. 9 on Stereogum, No. 10 on The A.V. Club, No. 13 on Pitchfork, and No. 14 on Rolling Stone’s year end albums of the year lists.

Crutchfield will play the Fayetteville show as a solo artist. Tickets are $12 in advance, and $15 the day of the show.

To purchase, visit the Eventbrite ticket page.

Deluxe Burger closed their Dickson Street location last month.

The restaurant, created by Theo’s and East Side Grille owner Scott Bowman, closed after nearly four years at 550 W. Dickson Street.

According to a sign posted on the door of the building, the owners are looking to relocate the business.

From the sign:

After a long run and successful run, we have decided to close this location of Deluxe & relocate to a different space soon.

We can not thank you enough for your continued support of Deluxe & this location. However, it is time for us to move on.

In the meantime, the restaurant still operates a location next to Whole Foods at 3391 N College Ave.

Fayetteville building awarded LEED Platinum certification

Courtesy photo

A building located in downtown Fayetteville was awarded the only LEED Platinum certification in the state of Arkansas for 2017.

15 North Center, home to local architecture studio Modus Studio, Specialized Real Estate Group, and Crown Barbershop, earned the distinction late last year.

“This project sets a strong example of leadership in action,” said Linda K. Smith, USGBC Director for Arkansas and Oklahoma in a press release issued last week. “This LEED Platinum certification is an opportunity to highlight the highest level of building performance in Northwest Arkansas and clearly demonstrates the owner’s commitment to sustainable practices.”

The building was built in 1955, and served as a warehouse for Ozarks Electric Cooperative, and later, a television studio. Modus Studio and Specialized Real Estate Group purchased the building, and fully renovated it in 2013. In addition to serving as office spaces for the two companies and as home to the barbershop, it also includes a second story apartment with rooftop deck.

Modus Studio designed the project, which includes several distinctive features. The black rainscreen on the building was finished by an ancient Japanese technique called “shou sugi ban,” where local cypress wood was charred with a custom forge built by Modus Studios. The burnt finish requires no maintenance, is resistant to insects, fire, and moisture, and is projected to last for 80 years without the use of chemicals.

The building uses energy and water saving fixtures and appliances, and natural lighting throughout. It also utilizes green landscaping features such as drought-resistant landscaping, native plants chosen to attract pollinators, a water-permeable parking area, green roof, and a rainwater cistern.

LEED is a voluntary, third-party verified green building rating system that addresses the site, water energy, materials, and indoor environmental quality of the facility.

According to a press release about the achievement, “the LEED certification of 15 Church was based on building achievements that have a positive impact on the facility itself and the broader community,” including:
– 31 percent reduction of potable water use over a baseline due to the installation of efficient faucet, toilet, and urinal fixtures.
– Energy efficiency is improved by 21 percent over a baseline modeled comparison to a similar building constructed to the ASHRAE 90.1-2007 energy efficiency standard.
– More than 97 percent of the original building’s structural elements were reused.
– 100 percent of the interior paints and coatings, adhesives and sealants, composite wood, agrifiber products and flooring systems contain minimal or no Volatile Organic Content (VOC).
– More than 87 percent of the on-site generated construction waste was diverted from the landfill through recycling.

A celebration marking the LEED Platinum certification is planned from 4-6 p.m. on Wednesday, Jan 17. Architects and developers will offer tours of the building highlighting the green building elements, and Fayetteville Mayor Lioneld Jordan and Linda K. Smith, USGBC Director for Arkansas and Oklahoma will present the LEED Seal.
