Hilliard Avenue Apartments, a new five-story, 80-unit apartment building with 5,200 square feet of commercial space, is planned for a vacant lot at the corner of Hilliard and Clingman avenues. Sixty of the apartments are to be deemed affordable housing. This is a Mountain Housing Opportunities project.
The Hilliard Avenue Apartments projected is located in a hot area for new development. Here’s a rundown:
-Right across Hilliard Avenue, the city of Asheville is working with a private developer to build a 64-unit affordable housing complex on a corner lot there. The city-owned property was once home to a city parks and recreation maintenance facility. Those buildings have been demolished to make way for the new construction.
-Just up the street at the corner of Clingman and Patton Avenues, work continues on a 115-unit apartment complex in a four-story building with parking deck. Patton Place Apartments should be opening up later this year.
-Across Clingman Avenue from the new Hilliard Avenue Apartments, Duke Energy has plans to build a new electrical substation.
The Hilliard Avenue Apartments project is scheduled to be reviewed by the Asheville Technical Review Committee at its March 5 meeting. The property owner is Future Doc Management, Inc.
