Developers Mark Opening of Mann on Main in Little Rock
The Mann on Main Building in July, as work continued. The project includes a mix of office, retail and residential developments.

Doyle Rogers Co. and Moses Tucker Real Estate on Thursday marked the grand opening of its Mann on Main mixed-use building, the fully restored and redeveloped former Blass Department Store at Main and 4th streets in downtown Little Rock.

The $22 million project includes the Mann Building, a 90,000-SF office building at the corner of 4th and Main; the Mann Lofts, a 30,000-SF multifamily residential component; the ground floor retail of both buildings; and a four-level parking garage at the corner of Louisiana and 4th streets.

The project occupies what was once the original seven-story Blass Department Store, built in 1906, its annex building, and a surface lot that was once the location of Union National Bank. 

The main building was designed by architect George Mann and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

Among the Mann Building's tenants is the State of Arkansas, which is locating its Office of Child Support Enforcement, the Arkansas Crime Information Center and the Arkansas State Board of Pharmacy in the building.

In addition to the office and residential components, the buildings will be home to Bruno's Little Italy in the Mann Lofts ground floor space, complete with outdoor patio seating along Main Street.
