Repurposed Commercial Real Estate

Repurposing commercial real estate can be a huge feat, but if done well the outcome can lead to success. Below are some commercial buildings that have been renovated, restored, and reimagined in order to bring life to new businesses. These buildings are now staples in Northwest Arkansas bringing people to our area and our community together. 

Cheers at the OPO

As the name suggest, the OPO served as a U.S. post office from 1911-1963. It is known as the centerpiece of the Fayetteville Historic Square and was placed on the National Historic Register in 1974. It has been home to many different uses and is currently a wood-fire grilled Southern American restaurant called Cheers at the OPO

The Apollo on Emma

On September 29, 1949, The Apollo on Emma opened as a movie theater in Downtown Springdale. For 44 years, movies were shown and popcorn was consumed. The Apollo closed in 1993 and was left condemned for many years. Today, The Apollo on Emma is one of Northwest Arkansas’ unique wedding venues. It reopened in 2017 after some renovations, but it still holds the character of the original movie theater. 

Onyx Coffee Headquarters

The Onyx Coffee Headquarters found its home in the former Dollar Saver building in Downtown Rogers. It was built in 1907 to be used for Rogers Wholesale Grocery and was designed to allow products to be received from train cars on the east side of the building and transferred to wagons on the west. In addition to the Onyx Coffee Lab HQ, the building is also features a bakery, a taqueria and mezcal bar, a twenty-seat tasting restaurant, a high-end cocktail bar, as well as residential spaces. 

The Record

Located in Downtown Bentonville, the Record currently serves many purposes. It is an 8,100 square foot event space that is utilized for conferences, church services, weddings, and more. It was formerly a car dealership turned regional newspaper office. It’s an industrial building with cement floors and exposed pipes, but leaves room for decorations and designs to transform the space to fit your event’s aesthetic. 

The Momentary

The Momentary is Crystal Bridges’ new contemporary art satellite museum. It opened February of 2020 near Downtown Bentonville. It was formerly a Kraft cheese factory and through the renovations, the architects were able to keep most of the existing building intact including the boiler room which you can still visit today. We suggest visiting the Tower Bar for an exceptional view of Bentonville from 70 feet above.
