We’re inspired by great communities that work, inspired by well-designed places where porches and storefronts open to sidewalks, inviting a familiarity that makes us neighbors in the truest sense. We formed High Street Real Estate & Development to build great new places and to redevelop properties in Northwest Arkansas’s downtowns. Our residential and commercial projects are influenced by philosophies that improve livability, adding lasting value to our neighborhoods and communities.
