United in Opposition To Overdevelopment


This would be the largest multi-family development in all of WNC. As proposed, it has 50% more residential units than the next largest development plus 120,000 sq ft of commercial space. It is 3x larger than a typical multi-family development. It has no affordable housing.

The plan includes 802 residential units; 14,400 sf retail space; 50,400 sf office space; 64,000 sf self storage space, with approximately 1400 parking spaces. It would be built on a 68 acre tract of land with the majority (85%) of the build-out happening in Phase I from Spring 2020 - 2022. This land is surrounded on three sides by the City of Asheville but is not within City limits. It is zoned PS for Public Service. The developers require a Conditional Use permit from the Buncombe County Board of Adjustment. That is the only oversight they are subject to according to the current zoning ordinance.

Who benefits from putting this many units here without the infrastructure to support it ?
