Sam Walker, Austin Walker and Russ Towers bought the building a couple of years ago and have been renovating it. They returned the building to its original look and moved in the King Daddy Chicken & Waffles restaurant and Rhetorical Factory clothing shop into the ground floor. Also, Second Gear was renovated and expanded.
Now the apartments are ready for rent. They’ll be going for $715 to $1,150 a month. There are 10 total, but two have been rented, with the first tenant moving in on Wednesday. There will be an open house from 2-5 p.m. on Sunday, July 13, to give people the chance to tour the apartments and say hello to the business owners in the building.
This crew has done an amazing job on the Depression-era building. Go check it out.
(Yes, these guys are friends. Yes, they also created the new space for Crossfit Asheville behind 444 Haywood, which I love. No, they’re not paying me to say any of this.)
