Chaffee Crossing is the economic development engine of western Arkansas located at the center point of national business.
Over $1.751 BILLION in capital investments have resulted in 17 corporate and regional headquarters, more than 3,250 jobs and 1,050 students by 2024, 29 residential developments, and a variety of amenities resulting in an exciting, vibrant mixed-use community. People and businesses are drawn to the Chaffee Crossing lifestyle because this is Arkansas’ premier community where Smart Growth planning is key.
The HUB at Providence developer ERC has announced a new business is coming to the mixed-use development - Barrels & Brews Bottle Shop will open mid-2021 in The HUB, located on Wells Lake Rd., Fort Smith.
