Arvest's purchase of Bear State closes Arvest Bank on Friday closed on its acquisition of Little Rock-based Bear State Financial Inc., the Fayetteville-based bank said.

The price Ridgeline paid for the 43,000-square-foot building was unavailable because the building sits on leased property. "The only thing that was sold was the improvements" on the property, said Wes Martin of Coldwell Banker Commercial Hathaway Group. "The buyer and the seller have an agreement in place not to release that." Construction of the building at 16115 St. Vincent Way near the Promenade at Chenal shopping center was completed in 2015. The building is 68 percent occupied by six medical practices specializing in radiology, imaging, dermatology, pediatrics, dentistry and pharmacy. -- David Smith Index down by 3.94, ends week at 401.95 The Arkansas Index, a price-weighted index that tracks the largest public companies based in the state, fell 3.94 to 401.95 Friday.
