Walgreens Replacing Historic Baptist Church Soon

By Paul Biasco | November 12, 2012 5:37pm

LINCOLN PARK — Crews began dismantling the former Greater Little Rock The Lord Church Nov. 6, hoping to completely demolish the historic Baptist church on Armitage Avenue within three weeks.

Plans for a three-story Walgreens at the site were still being drafted, but developers hope to start new construction in the spring, according to the site's project manager.

Neighbors said they were upset that the demolition process had begun without ever seeing plans for the new Walgreens. Those plans were not yet complete, said the project manager.

"We don’t want them to just show the plans and say, 'Here it is,' and get going," said Kristi Nuelle, who lives next door to the site.

"We would like to look at them, scrutinize them."
