Pack Square Conservancy design-review committee recommendations on Parkside project

This November 2007 document shows the recommendations of the Pack Square Conservancy’s design-review committee to the conservancy board regarding developer Stewart Coleman‘s proposed Parkside project, an 11-story, mixed-use building that would be built adjacent to the Asheville City Hall on a parcel that’s the subject of an ongoing legal fight. The conservancy board is charged with reviewing all development and redevelopment projects fronting on Pack Square and Roger McGuire Green.

The review committee found that the developer’s design failed to comply with Pack Square design guidelines. The committee also recommends that the board pursue a land swap to move the development south in accordance with boundary guidelines.
