Fayetteville's 112 Drive-In property zoned for mixed-use
Owners of Fayetteville's 112 Drive-In succeeded in getting 22 acres of the 36-acre property rezoned to mixed residential and commercial use, the Northwest Arkansas Democrat-Gazette reports.
- The Fayetteville City Council approved the request with an 8-0 vote.
Why it matters: Plans for the property include single-family homes, townhouses, retail/restaurant space and a theater with a beer garden.
- Steve Brooks, a lawyer representing the property's buyer, said the plan also includes a drive-in theater, both the Democrat-Gazette and Fayetteville Flyer report.
Context: CL Partners, LLC of Rogers has lined up to buy the property. The company's manager is former photographer and filmmaker, Dave Anderson of Little Rock.
What they're saying: Anderson told us in April: "It is our plan and intention to build a truly special neighborhood entertainment destination for all to enjoy."
Flashback: According to Cinema Treasures, the drive-in first opened in 1980 and has a capacity of 420 cars.
- It operates in warmer months and opened for the year in April. It costs $10 for people 13 or older, $5 for kids 6 to 12; and free for anyone 5 or under.
Of note: Axios incorrectly reported the estimated market value of the property in April. That assessment was based on only one of six parcels owned by 112 Drive-in Inc.
- All parcels combined are more than 36 acres and have an estimated market value of more than $1.52 million.
