New Developments Coming to Don Tyson
Springdale, Arkansas is the fourth largest city in Arkansas and stretches across four exits along I-49. One of these exits, Don Tyson, is seeing large amounts of construction and new development recently. Historically an under developed area, Don Tyson will soon be home to new housing, medical, and office facilities.
The Springdale Planning Commission approved plans for 2 multifamily housing projects on January 5th. Another developer is seeking to add a high-density community totaling 700 housing units.
The Don Tyson exit is seeing many medical facilities open. The area was declared an “overlay district” by the city meaning it is held to higher standards where development is concerned.
