This industrial warehouse at 1201 Murphy Drive in Maumelle was recently purchased by Murphy Industrial LLC. for $2.2 million.

820 Thompson Development Co. paid $2.4 million for a section of a Walmart store parking lot on Bowman Road in Little Rock last month.

The sale was for an almost 30,000-square-foot lot next to two restaurants, a Taco Bell and a Freddy's Frozen Custard & Steakburgers.

820 Thompson Development is a California general partnership. It borrowed $1.4 million from Armed Forces Bank in Kansas City, Mo., to help finance the deal.

Austin Hathaway Jr., a trustee of the Austin H. Hathaway Jr. and Sonia L. Hathaway Living Trust, and Harry Hathaway, as trustee of the Hathaway Living Trust signed the mortgage. Each one is a general partner of 820 Thompson Development.

The property, almost 0.7 acres, was appraised at $2.1 million this year.

The seller was PM Little Rock LLC, a Phoenix, Ariz., limited liability company. Perry Mann, managing member of PM Little Rock, did not return a call seeking comment.

Murphy Industrial LLC, a limited liability company based in Eden Prairie, Minn., invested $2.2 million to buy a 36,000-square-foot warehouse building in Maumelle last month.

Mondelez didn't require the entire building, so it moved to a smaller space in Little Rock, said Judy Keller, director of economic development for Maumelle.

Stericycle, a medical waste disposal firm based in Lake Forest, Ill., now is leasing the building, with a subsidiary, Shred-It, as the primary tenant in the building, Keller said.

"They are expanding the parking lot right now," Keller said.

The industrial building, appraised at $1.7 million this year, was built in 1995.
