A Pennsylvania-based self-storage operator has sold one of its six Arkansas assets for $10.55 million.

Self Storage Capital Partners (SSCP), a Philadelphia-based self-storage firm that uses the brand name of Snapbox Self Storage, sold its property at 804 S.E. J St. in Bentonville.

The new owner is North Star J LLC, a Delaware-registered entity. Fayetteville attorney Terry Pool represented North Star J in the deal.

After the sale, SSCP owns five self-storage properties in Arkansas in Little Rock (2), Rogers (2) and Bentonville.

A real estate developer has picked up a three-year, $3.85 million funding agreement from Fayetteville-chartered Arvest Bank.

The loan is backing the development of a 42-unit condominium development at 609 D St. near downtown Bentonville.

Art Condos LLC, managed by Jay Howard, is the developer. The project is called Art Park Condos, and the 1.14-acre lot is situated a half block to the south of the city-owned Austin-Baggett Park.

Design plans include three four-story buildings. Kansas City, Mo.-based design firm Huftt, which has an office in Bentonville, is the designer. Corco Construction of Little Rock is the general contractor.

Each of the units will be available for sale, and the project will be governed by a property owners association.

The site is one block from the former Kraft Cheese plant at 507 S.E. E St. that’s being redeveloped into the Momentary, a visual and performing arts venue near the 8th Street Market.
