The WindRiver building in Little Rock’s Riverdale offers views or the Arkansas River and the downtown skyline.

The WindRiver building in Little Rock's Riverdale neighborhood sold recently for $2.7 million.

The building is best known as being the home of Brave New Restaurant, which signed a seven-year lease with plans to remain in the building.

The buyer was 2300 Cottondale Building, an Arkansas limited liability company, which was represented by Realtors Kevin Huchingson, Brandon Rogers and Mason Lewis of Colliers International Arkansas.

It is fully occupied with tenants including Mangan Holcomb Partners advertising agency, Team SI digital agency, Armor Bank, Paschall & Associates, Peregrine Wealth Strategies and others.

"With [WindRiver's] occupancy history and fantastic location just minutes from downtown, the Heights and midtown, it's a sound real estate investment and a win for both the buyer and the tenants," Rogers said.

The new owners plan to upgrade the building's common areas as well as install a new roof.
