Burkhalter also focused on the river. He would like to develop a marina and multi-family housing development on its bank next to the Clinton Library.

Burkhalter said he expects to have all permits issued through the Corps of Engineers by the end of the year, and for construction to begin within 60 days of the permits being issued. Burkhalter is financing all construction of the planned $250 million project, which will be located on 16 and a half acres leased from the city of Little Rock.

He envisions a marina that could accommodate 450 boats, multiple multi-family dwellings and three-story office buildings.

Construction alone, he said, could add several hundred local jobs.
