Former Divinity Site
Fayetteville aldermen in July 2006 approved plans for a 15-story, mixed-use development called the Divinity south of Dickson Street between Block and Church avenues. The project was proposed by former Northwest Arkansas developer Brandon Barber. The next month, Peter Tooker and Mike Shirkey, who owns Good Folk Productions and used to host concerts and special events at a house at 229 N. Block Ave., filed a lawsuit opposing the project. Barber’s company, The Barber Group, abandoned the development the following year.
