That taller proposed tower has a very Asheville-esque look to it with that '1920s-1930s' crown on top.
the developer said he wanted to continue what the developer of the grove arcade was going to do back in the 20's and use the same tower design that was supposed to sit on top of the current grove arcade.there was a big article in the citizen times on the developer. he is from florida and i think he said he use to live here in asheville. the residental tower is to be lit up at night but they r going to use a dimmer light so that its not to bright.

It goes before the city council for final approval on Tuesday, September 23. The downtown commission and technical review board have already approved it.

I feel certain that such a high quality project like this one will start. It's just a matter of time. I mean, the design is great!

It's dead, Jim. Heirs to the Pack family brought suit against the developer, saying that the county's sale of the parkland was illegal and went against the original deed to the land that is now Pack Square Park, which states that the land is to be used for the public good forever. A judge's ruling recently sided with them. And so, as it stands, Stuart Coleman, the developer, owns the historic Hayes and Hopson building and will probably tear it down just for spite, but the sliver of parkland that he owns cannot be used to build anything on.

He's going to appeal the ruling, naturally. He felt that while he was hated by nearly everyone in the city, he wasn't actually hated by everyone, and he's going to keep going until he achieves his goal, which is to be despised by every last resident of the city of Asheville. Frankly, I'm surprised that no one's tried to kill him yet. Emotions are running that high over it.

...And the city said no to Haywood Park. Too big, too tall. The city council wants the developer to scale back the project and bring it back for another review in November.

WOW, that is a major disappointment. I have no doubt that the revised plan will be of equal quality, but the beauty and height of the original plan would have taken Asheville's public image to a totally new level, in my opinion.
