Pine Bluff Beale?

Posted on Thu, Jul 5, 2007 at 4:00 AM

Pine Bluff, Arkansas, a city 45 minutes southeast of Little Rock, is looking for entertainment from a familiar face: John Elkington.

According to the Pine Bluff Commercial, the Pine Bluff City Council will be meeting with Beale Street developer Elkington and Pine Bluff native Elvin W. Moon to talk about creating a downtown entertainment district.

Elkington is the chief executive officer of Performa, the real estate company that manages Beale Street in Memphis and is working on projects in Jackson, Mississippi, Fredericksburg, Virginia, and Trenton, New Jersey.

Pine Bluff could present the energetic developer with quite a challenge. Less than 10 years ago, the town was ranked as one of the 10 worst places to live in America, so we’re having a hard time imagining it on a Hard Rock Café t-shirt.
