Construction has begun on The Plaza at Pinnacle Hills, a new $110 million mixed use development in Rogers west of Interstate 49.

The project by Indiana-based developer Great Lakes Capital boasts 304 luxury apartments and will be anchored by a two-story Ruth's Chris Steakhouse, according to a release. The Ruth's Chris restaurant on Pinnacle Hills Parkway will close when the new location opens in 2024.

The project at Northgate Road and Champions Drive is being developed in partnership with Hatfield Whalen Land LLC. It will include amenities like indoor parking, a resort-style pool, dog park, electric vehicle charging and a billiard room.

"We are excited for our partnership with GLC as it will bring new amenities and high-quality living to the heart of Pinnacle Hills," Chad Hatfield, managing partner of Hatfield Whalen Land, said in a statement.

Colliers of Arkansas, will manage the retail and restaurant leasing, CR Crawford is managing construction on the project and Chicago-based BSB Designs is its architect, according to a release.
