PHOTOS Construction on Eagle and Market streets in downtown Asheville


Here’s a quick look at the work on a major new mixed-use development happening in downtown Asheville. The area, along Eagle and Market streets, is Asheville’s historically black business district. The area is also known as The Block.

The construction includes renovating a couple of existing buildings, as well as new construction that would include a mix of residential and commercial units. It is a project by Mountain Housing Opportunities in partnership with Eagle Market Streets Development Corporation. Background here.

Here’s what the area looked like in 2012.

Any new developments on this? It seems like it should have been completed by now…
