Asheville – In a 4-3 vote last week, the City of Asheville approved a new development at the Four Points by Sheraton hotel site at the corner of Central Ave. and Woodfin Street across from the Asheville YMCA.
Anna Long, Communications Specialist for MHAworks, PA told the Tribune, “Will be the largest development downtown Asheville has seen in many years. It will feature sustainable design by pursing Green Globes certification, and will support the growth of pedestrian-oriented development along Woodfin Street and Central Avenue.”
According to information sent by Long the project will include “…housing, retail, and dining in downtown Asheville…the proposed development called Four Points Mixed-Use, which will consist of a new mixed-use condominium and apartment addition to an existing 3.5-acre site.
“The 477,000 square foot addition to the Four Points Hotel site will include residential for-sale and rental units, a rooftop restaurant with outdoor dining and views of Mount Pisgah and downtown Asheville, retail space, and an Earth Fare supermarket. These new mixed-use spaces will bring full-time activity to the site and will support the growth of pedestrian-oriented development along Woodfin Street and Central Avenue.
“Residences will be 1, 2, or 3-bedroom units, ranging from 800-1600 square feet, accessible through private entry, and include private balconies. Other features include a private owners’ clubhouse and terrace as well as a multi-level underground parking structure for residents and visitors.
“This project will be the largest development downtown Asheville has seen in many years,” said Eric Howell, MHAworks’ Asheville director. “Four Points will establish Woodfin Street as a major pedestrian corridor while providing a buffer between downtown and I-240.”
