145 Biltmore Avenue Announces New Floor Addition, New Amenities

The development team of 145 Biltmore Avenue is excited to announce that, due to demand, they have added seven new residences to the forthcoming modern art deco condominium building, located in Asheville’s beautiful South Slope neighborhood. The building will features parking on floors 1 and 2, with parking accessible from both Lexington and Biltmore, and will include an exclusive studio apartment on the first floor. The new second floor will feature five 1- and 2-bedroom residences. This creates a total of 34 homes, up from the original 27 in the initial design.

“We are committed to preserving the quiet and peace of the residential-only space by capping the number the condos we will offer,” says Al Sneeden, developer. “The addition of the second floor leverages the demand we’ve seen as well as provides another handful of beautiful, affordable homes for residents while maintaining a small footprint and the highest quality construction.”

When the project was announced earlier this fall, over 90% of the original building was immediately reserved within two weeks after the announcement. “Asheville real estate brokers have had buyers waiting for a property like this for well over a year,” says Don Wilcoxon, developer. “We want to do what we can to keep this building unique, exclusive, and still offering some of the lowest HOA fees in the city while featuring some of the largest new living spaces.”

New amenities were also announced to current buyers and include: an electric vehicle charging station, landscaped pet area, USB wall ports, motion sensor LED lights in closets, solar screen roller shades, high efficiency HVAC systems with Nest or similar temperature systems throughout residences, a bike storage room, and upgrades such as indoor gas fireplaces in living areas and outdoor gas grills, fire pits and fire places.

The second floor condos will be publicly offered soon. For availability and details, please see Availability and contact info@145biltmore.com for an information package.

The Biltmore Beacon recently featured 145 Biltmore Avenue in the news. Check out the full article here and enjoy the excerpt below.


 

Preserve Communities Group is planning a first-in-class modern art deco residential space for 145 Biltmore Avenue, located in Asheville’s South Slope neighborhood.

145 Biltmore Avenue is a world-class modern art deco residence in the beautiful South Slope neighborhood of Asheville. Steps away from galleries, music, arts, shopping, dining and nightlife, this new property honors Asheville’s heritage with its stunning design that blends the look of a 1920s art deco building with solid construction and sustainable details to blend effortlessly into the existing downtown Asheville architecture.

The property, spanning between Biltmore to South Lexington Avenue, will feature a 7-story, residential-only private building will be comprised of 27 condominiums, and each residence will have its own unique floor plan. What is most remarkable about 145 Biltmore Ave is that it will be Asheville’s first “transterior” design: an architectural concept that seamlessly blends outdoor living spaces and biophilic elements with indoor residences.

145 Biltmore Avenue Plan Features 27 Condos, ‘Transterior’ Design

 

Many thanks to Dillon Davis and the Asheville Citizen-Times for this comprehensive write-up about the forthcoming 145 Biltmore Avenue residences.


EXCERPT:

ASHEVILLE — If they were here today, it’s fair to ask what the developers of Asheville’s Art Deco buildings of the early 20th century would want to see in the city’s modern downtown.

In fact, Al Sneeden wondered the same thing.

Sneeden, a developer and partner of Preserve Communities Groups, hopes the answer might be found in his latest project, 145 Biltmore Avenue. The project features a seven-story, residential-only building made up of 27 condominiums built in the South Slope between Biltmore and South Lexington avenues.

Construction on the project is scheduled to begin in spring 2018. It is expected to be finished by mid-2019.

Preserve Communities Groups touted the project as Asheville’s first “transterior design,” a concept that blends outdoor living spaces and biophilic elements — drawing connections to the outdoors with “abundant” windows, mountain views and winter garden rooms — with indoor residences.

New Modern Art Deco Residential Condos Announced for 145 Biltmore Avenue

The 27-residential space will be first in its class in Asheville, attracting outdoor enthusiasts with a groundbreaking “transterior” concept, including the largest outdoor living spaces available downtown.

ASHEVILLE, NC – September 12, 2017 – Preserve Communities Group announced today that they are planning a first-in-class modern art deco residential space for 145 Biltmore Avenue, located in Asheville’s South Slope neighborhood. The property, spanning between Biltmore to South Lexington Avenue, will feature a 7-story, residential-only private building will be comprised of 27 condominiums, and each residence will have its own unique floor plan. What is most remarkable about 145 Biltmore Avenue is that it will be Asheville’s first “transterior” design: an architectural concept that seamlessly blends outdoor living spaces and biophilic elements with indoor residences.

“The concept and design has been in the making for a very long time,” says Al Sneeden, developer and partner of Preserve Communities Group. “Our clients wanted a Biltmore location, but not just an address. It was definitely time to create something unique all around in terms of quality, amenities and privacy…really focusing on Asheville residents and what’s important to them. And one of the most important values among our clients is finding a way to live downtown yet still feel immersed in the outdoors and the mountains.”

Sneeden, who resides in Asheville, served as a partner in the Preserve Land Company at the Santa Lucia Preserve, a 20,000 acre lifestyle community in Carmel, California. His recent projects include 45 Asheland, a mixed-use commercial and residential condo building downtown that is currently under construction.

145 Biltmore Avenue, designed by Peter Alberice, will include all the high-quality architecture standards that were developed and included in MHAworks’ previous projects: 12 South Lexington and 45 Asheland Avenue.

Alberice, AIA, NCARB, LEED, is the vice president of MHAworks. He has served on the Asheville Historic Resources Commission, the Asheville Downtown Association, and the Asheville Downtown Commission and is a past chair of the Asheville Chamber of Commerce. He has practiced architecture in western North Carolina since 1983.

“As a resident of downtown myself, I wanted to design a building that was open, beautiful and efficient yet noticeably distinct,” says Alberice. “We combined elements of a 1920s art deco building with modern lines, solid construction, and sustainability elements to complement our downtown skyline.”

The transterior concept, he explains, will have features such as large, full-glass transitions from interior living spaces to exterior areas providing a “seamless” experience of feeling connected to the outdoors. This concept also includes abundant windows that open inward, sun-drenched winter garden rooms in some residences, and the largest outdoor living spaces available in the city. Each unit will have plentiful mountain views.

One-bedroom condos start at 772 square feet, two-bedroom units at 1,213 square feet and penthouses on the 7th floor will be custom designed for each buyer. The building will also feature secure parking underneath it, with each residence receiving one deeded parking space and a second space available as an option.

“Asheville is a great city and its people deserve the best,” says Don Wilcoxon, developer and Preserve Communities partner. “I personally love the South Slope–its vitality and community–and we’re excited to offer new, private homes for the neighborhood.” Wilcoxon served as former COO/CFO developer for the Santa Lucia Preserve in Carmel, California.

“It’s going to be unlike anything the city has ever seen,” added Sneeden.
