We have more development news for you this week, Asheville. 🏗️ Last Thursday, the city’s Planning and Urban Design Review Committee approved a new project in the River Arts District – Radview, a high-density, mixed-use development will provide housing, artist studios, office + retail space on the hill behind N.C. Glass Center (140c Roberts St.).

Residences at the 22,400-square-foot development would primarily be under $1,000 a month (“reasonably-priced market apartments,” according to the developer), and the building is designed to offer live-work space for artists.

Here’s the scoop on what else is planned for Radview:

  • Two four-story + one three-story building
  • 26 residential units
  • Offices
  • Artist studios
  • Retail space
  • 22 parking spaces in a lot – plus four additional street spaces
  • Landscaping – including a plaza + a sidewalk that will extend to the property line along the building’s north edge
  • Access to bus routes + greenways
  • Architecture in the style of the RAD with a contemporary industrial + warehouse aesthetic

Construction could begin next year on the project. There’s no word yet on how tenants will be chosen.

Radview is one of many new developments coming to the RAD. The City is heading up several other projects, including revitalization efforts like rebuilding area roads, expanding and connecting greenways, installing public art, removing invasive species + planting new trees to improve water quality and visitor experience.
