NORTH LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (News release) – First Orion today announced the selection of a building site in Central Arkansas for the development of its multi-story, multi-million-dollar global headquarters.
Located on the 500 block of Main St. in North Little Rock, the 60,000 sq. ft. office building will serve First Orion’s 200-person workforce and be the anchor tenant of the future Argenta Plaza. First Orion also has offices in Seattle, Dallas and London.
