Phase 2: Oct 2018 – Sept 2019

Pine Bluff Rising has attracted investors to renovate and repurpose the iconic Pines Hotel. Work should start soon which will increase interest in the downtown area.

Simmons Bank has made a sizable investment to ensure Pine Bluff has a downtown square. Officials are looking for the location of the Plaza that will attract foot traffic and create a green space for outdoor activities.

These two additions to downtown will complement our new library and new Pine Bluff Plaza. Work on the plaza is scheduled to begin soon and should be complete by the end of this year. The library is in the process of developing its plans.
