The developers behind Johnson Square, a 74-acre development valued at approximately $200 million and situated mostly to the north of Johnson Mill Boulevard in Johnson, have started work on the neighborhood’s third commercial building.
High Street Real Estate & Development, led by principals Ward Davis and Morgan Hooker, say the 29,800-square-foot building, called the Truesdale Building, will feature a mixture of retail, office and residential tenants that are to be determined. The three-story building will be situated along Johnson Mill Boulevard to the west of the RMP Building.
Lease rates are still being determined. Construction is scheduled to be complete by early 2020.
RMP refers to law firm Reece Moore Pendergraft, who partnered with High Street to build a 21,000-square-foot office building in Johnson Square. It was completed late last year, and the law firm relocated its downtown Fayetteville headquarters to the building’s top two floors. Tenant leases are being finalized for the remaining ground level retail units, with some space still available. It is owned by the law firm and High Street, each business with a 50% interest.
High Street and Washington Regional Medical Center partnered last year to develop an urgent care clinic south of the boulevard, at the intersection of Main Drive.
C.R. Crawford Construction of Fayetteville is the general contractor of the Truesdale Building, which takes its names from the original name of the city’s iconic Johnson Mill, which was also known as the Truesdale Mill, Sutton Mill and Spring Mill during its early history.
Fayetteville architect Robert Sharp is leading the design of the Truesdale Building. Other firms working on the project are CEI Engineering Associates Inc. of Bentonville, Geary Engineering Inc. of Rogers, JLA Engineers Inc. of Lowell and Smart Interiors LLC of Fayetteville.
