BUNCOMBE CITIZENS CONCERNED ABOUT CROSSROADS

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 128,000 sq ft of commercial space. It is 3x to 4x larger than a typical multi-family development. It is not in the central business district, not connected to a main transportation corridor, and it has no affordable housing. It is surrounded by existing low-density residential neighborhoods of Buncombe County citizens and taxpayers.

The plan includes 802 residential units (600,000 sf ?); 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 acres of undeveloped 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 only a Conditional Use permit from the Buncombe County Board of Adjustment to proceed. Because of the current zoning ordinances, no elected officials accountable to citizens will be involved in approving or denying the largest proposed residential development in the county to date.

Who benefits from putting this many units here without the infrastructure to support it ? The concerns about this are numerous and far-reaching. Please follow the links on this website to learn more about the proposed plans.
