This mixed-use development is comprised of five buildings across approximately 4.5 acres in the South Slope district in Asheville, NC. The private developer is developing this property with a core goal of creating better community use for the underutilized parcels. Our team designed concepts that take into account the unique context and setting while enhancing the community and character of the site within a welcoming, vibrant, and dynamic environment. The project will feature 488 apartments, of which 49 are affordable units. This allowed the project to be awarded a Land Use Incentive Grant valued at almost $4 million.
The development will also include office and commercial space. Connectivity between Asheland Avenue and Coxe Avenue was imperative during site development and our design team responded by creating pedestrian thoroughfares with beautifully landscaped public plazas and courtyards.
