First Orion Building is a 70,000 square foot mixed-use building located in the historic Argenta Arts District of North Little Rock, AR. It is a 5 level new construction office, retail, gym, restaurant building with rooftop patio space for social gatherings. In addition to the building, we completed the parking area and landscaping. Building First Orion was a challenge between private and municipal work going on around our project the entire time, the buried basement, and access flooring system housing our major MEP components. Yet, we overcame these challenges to produce a gorgeous building in a up and coming area of town. Here is a cute video of the First Orion employees returning to the office after a year away that shows the building.
