During their meeting on October 12, 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’s 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.
