NAI Harmon Group Purchases 30 Acres of Prime Real Estate in Fort Chaffee, Arkansas for Development


Official Press Release
For Immediate Release


Toledo, Ohio –09/22/2021 – NAI Harmon Group of Toledo, Ohio, an office of NAI Global, a leading global commercial real estate brokerage firm, announced today that it has purchased 30 acres of prime real estate within Chaffee Crossing in Fort Smith, Arkansas.
Fort Chaffee Redevelopment Authority (FCRA), the seller of the property, is an Arkansas Public Trust in charge of overseeing the 7000-acre economic development project known as Chaffee Crossing, land that was once part of the Fort Chaffee Army base. FCRA Executive Director and CEO Daniel Mann has worked with NAI Harmon Group over the past six months to bring this important project to fruition. “Bringing 1.2 million square feet of warehouse space to the Fort Smith regional market at this point in time is a critically important step toward helping our economy grow and expand. The region is known for its industrial and manufacturing strength but warehouse space has been tight for some time, limiting expansions and new capital investment. This property in Chaffee Crossing is conveniently located on the Interstate 49 corridor in a rapidly developing area that can readily serve new and existing industry. We are highly confident it will be a successful $40 million investment for NAI Harmon Group.”
Harmon Group has plans to build two, 300,000 SF warehouses on the property. They have enjoyed working with the Fort Chaffee Redevelopment Authority and feel that this project will aid in the overall growth of the area. With an unemployment rate below the national average, the Fort Smith region has a strong workforce and a driven economy. The Harmon Group is excited to build in Chaffee Crossing with its strong manufacturing community. This will be the fourth property that they have developed in Fort Smith area in the past seven years.
