Asheville City Council approves rezoning of 130 Charlotte Street

Press release from the city of Asheville:

During their October 12 meeting, Asheville City Council voted to approve a Conditional Zoning Request for property at 130 Charlotte Street (formerly occupied by Fudruckers). This decision aligns with the Council goal of a “well-planned and livable community.”

The approval is for construction of an approximately 166,000-square-foot mixed-use development that includes 186 new residential units and 4,500 square feet of commercial/retail space. Housing is the predominant land use based on the current plan and, when complete, it will include 38 affordable housing units. 

This project meets a number of key City goals in the Living Asheville Comprehensive Plan including: 
  • Encouraging responsible growth by increasing the city’s housing supply and locating housing density and new jobs in a locationally efficient area, within an Innovation District, which is one of the plan’s identified growth areas.
  • Making streets more walkable, comfortable and connected by supporting mobility and access through pedestrian and transit infrastructure improvements. 
  • Celebrating the unique identity of neighborhoods through creative placemaking and increasing and diversifying the housing supply by providing appropriate infill development that includes housing, especially affordable housing.
