Hot Springs reveals plan for future development

HOT SPRINGS, Ark. (KTHV) -- After much anticipation and community involvement, the city of Hot Springs unveiled its future on Thursday in front of more than 300 people.

Ideas about transforming downtown began after the Majestic Hotel burned down more than a year and a half ago. The plan is ambitious in that it hopes to change the way people view downtown. Eighteen stores have opened in the area since the Majestic fire and the city hopes it's just the tip of the iceberg.

“We have a rich history here,” said Downtown Development Director with the Hot Springs Area Chamber of Commerce Cole McCaskill.

The thing about revitalization is it usually suggests rebuilding, but not in Hot Springs. In Hot Springs, it means taking what's there and making it better.

Posh hotel fits Spa City preservation plans

HOT SPRINGS, Ark. (KTHV) -- An improving economy and perhaps some roaming buffalo have tourism in Hot Springs booming.

Now, officials say that a building that was once considered a landmark is set for renovation.

The new owners of the Thompson building hope to bring more 'boutique' to Central Avenue in downtown Hot Springs.

The 100-year-old building is about to be renovated into what's called a boutique hotel.

Former doctors offices will become guest rooms in an Ascend hotel, the upscale brand for choice hotels best known for Comfort Inns and Econolodge.

For architect and developer Anthony Taylor, it's the latest step in a 30-year process.

His partners Bob Kempkes and Robert Zunick have a history here.
