Agree Stores LLC has purchased a new Firestone Complete Auto Care store in Bentonville for $3.77 million.

The automotive service center at 1405 N. Walton Blvd. was built in 2020 by Concept Development Inc., a Firestone developer based in Florida. The site is 1.6 acres and the building is 6,350 square feet. The purchase price equals $594.56 per square foot. City Title & Closing was the title agent.

Firestone is the single-story building’s tenant with a 15-year NNN lease. Concept paid $700,000 for the land in December 2019. Grizzly Properties LLC was the seller.

Agree Stores is based in Bloomfield Hills, Mich. The company is associated with Agree Realty Corp., a real estate investment trust (REIT) that develops, acquires and leases retail sites nationwide for several national brands, including McDonald’s, The Home Depot, Dollar General, CVS and Big Lots.

Rogers land approved for multifamily development sold recently for $3.54 million.

Pinnacle Hills Active Living LLC, led by Hausmann Development of Nebraska, bought the 9.03-acre site at the northwest corner of West Pleasant Grove Road and South Champions Drive, west of Interstate 49. The purchase price equals $9 per square foot.

Beaty Family LP, led by Lance Beaty, was the seller. Beaty is president of Beaty Capital Group Inc., a privately held Fort Smith-based investment group primarily focused on real estate investments.

Pinnacle Bank of Lincoln, Neb., backed the deal with a $2.83 million loan. City Title & Closing was the title agent. Clinton Bennett with Bennett Commercial Real Estate in Rogers represented the seller. Carson Stratman with Woodsonia Real Estate Inc. in Nebraska represented the buyer.

The buyer intends to develop the property to include a 180-unit senior living facility. It will be age-restricted to residents 55 years and older.

Development plans include three (3) three-story buildings, each with 60 units. One-bedroom units range from 830 to 950 square feet. Two-bedroom units range from 1,115 to 1,210 square feet. Amenities include a 7,000-square-foot clubhouse with fitness center, pool, community room and lounge/billiards area. The site plan also includes a community garden area, pickleball court, lounge area with grill and tables and interconnecting sidewalks.

City planners approved the buyer’s preliminary site plan in January.

Beaty’s property flip comes less than a year after buying the land. In an all-cash deal worth $6.5 million this past June, the Pauline Whitaker family, through its Whitwheel Properties LLC, sold approximately 74 acres west of the intersection of West Pleasant Grove Road and South Pinnacle Hills Parkway. The purchase resulted in North Little Rock real estate developer Ken Richardson owning 65 acres on the south side of West Pleasant Grove Road. Beaty owned 9 acres on the north side of the road.

Commercial land totaling 12.53 acres near Rogers High School changed hands twice in April for a combined $3.1 million.

Warehouse Properties LLC, managed by Don Glass, sold the land at 2002 S. Dixieland Road for $1.09 million to Dixieland Land Acquisition LLC, managed by Brian Moore. That equals $2.02 per square foot. The deal closed April 23.

On April 26, Dixieland Land Acquisition sold the land for $2.01 million to Reserve at Dixieland Apartments LLC, managed by Fort Smith real estate developer Norris Companies. That equals $3.70 per square foot.

City Title & Closing of Fayetteville was the title agent for both deals.

Warehouse Properties paid $501,000 ($0.92 per square foot) for the land in April 2017.

A commercial land sale in Lowell tipped the scales at $2.3 million.

The buyer’s agent did not disclose development plans.

Don Peters Construction Inc. of Lowell recently paid the city of Bentonville for a building permit valued at $1.22 million.

The company is using the permit to build an approximately 7,000-square-foot commercial building at 2300 S.E. J St.
