A site in downtown Bentonville once envisioned for a mixed-use development by Fayetteville-based Specialized Real Estate Group (SREG) has changed hands for $2.51 million.

Trailside Partners LLC bought four parcels totaling 1.34 acres on Southeast Second Street, just east of the downtown square. Spurgeon LLC was the seller.

Trailside includes multiple investors including Ray Osment, Randy Woodard and Ted Herget of Jonesboro and Jake Newell of Bentonville.

Encore Bank in Little Rock provided financing with a $2 million loan.

Spurgeon is led by Springdale businessman Tom Lundstrum, one of SREG’s capital partners on a project that was called Park Central, which included construction of 25, two-story townhomes, each with one or two bedrooms set above garages.

“We had an offer to sell the land and decided to take it instead of developing it ourselves,” SREG CEO Jeremy Hudson said. “The timing just made more sense for us.”

Spurgeon assembled the property in three separate deals totaling $1.79 million in January 2017. The site includes two older residential structures.
