Benton County acreage with Interstate 49 frontage changed ownership recently in two separate deals for a combined $1.65 million.
IDO Arkansas LLC of Tulsa, Okla., led by Robert D. Stephens, bought two parcels totaling 18.03 acres at 407 N. Goad Springs Road in Lowell, north of Metro Appliances & More. The purchase price equals $2.10 per square foot.
Directline Logistics LLC, led by Steven C. Barrett, sold 5.01 acres, and the estate of Edna Robbins sold 13.02 acres. Fayetteville-chartered Arvest Bank provided financing with a two-year mortgage of $1.40 million. Waco Title Co. of Springdale was the title agent.
Directline acquired its parcel in October 2011 for $202,333. The Bank of Fayetteville was the seller. IDO Arkansas is partnering with Sage Partners of Rogers to develop the site with multiple speculative buildings of industrial/flex space. Sage Partners is handling the leasing and marketing of the buildings and will also manage the properties. Sage Partners President Marshall Saviers said the site will likely have “three or four” buildings, and construction will begin early in 2018.
“What we are trying to do is have a place that will be appealing to [businesses] on the old Highway 71 corridor who want to be closer to the interstate and have a little more visibility, sort of like Metro Appliances,” he said. “The logic is that more folks will want to congregate there.”
