Two new development projects for Asheville are in the works: a proposed Craven Street condo building near the New Belgium Brewing brewery; and a proposed renovation to large downtown Asheville building.
Both projects are scheduled to be heard at the Aug. 19 meeting of the Asheville Technical Review Committee, a group of representatives from various city departments that offer feedback on development projects. Here’s a quick look:
68 Craven Street Condos: A developer is proposing to build a four-story, 57,384-square-foot building containing 37 residential units along Craven Street, across from New Belgium’s brewery there. The project is called 68 Craven Street Condos.
Starr Building: There’s a proposal to renovate the Starr Building in downtown Asheville. The large building fronts both Broadway Street and North Lexington Ave. The plans call for a mixed-use building that would house a restaurant with up to 100 seats, new retail space and 23 short-term rental condominium units.
The projects are on the agenda for the Aug. 19 meeting of the Technical Review Committee, which meets at 2 p.m. in Room A-109 at 161 S. Charlotte St.
