More riverfront property to be made public

According to the Asheville Citizen-Times, A key section of riverfront land should be open to the public by the end of the year, a city staffer says, and could eventually hold a River Arts District visitors center.

The property is located west of Riverside Drive, immediately north of 12 Bones Smokehouse and the Riverside Drive/Lyman Street intersection in the city’s urban riverfront, and contains an older one-story brick building that has been boarded up for some time.

Possible uses include office or retail, a visitors center, a boat and bike rental center, open space or greenway or other commercial uses, according to a public notice from environmental regulators.
