Pike Place Market
Seattle's Pike Place Market inspired the construction of the River Market building in downtown Little Rock. In particular Ottenheimer Hall, which houses a number of food vendors, is modeled after Pike Place Market, which downtown Little Rock developer Jimmy Moses visited in the early 1980s. The River Market building erected in 1995-1996 was designed by Rick Redden of AMR Architects and cost $3.5 million to complete.
