Depot Street is perhaps the hottest street in Asheville right now. Construction on the multi-million dollar Glen Rock Depot project has passed the 50-percent complete mark. Construction has started on a new city recreation center to replace the aging Reid Center.
Meantime, a series of warehouse have been renovated and sparkle now as the result of one sweet paint job. The photos above show the series of buildings that are now brightly colored and feature a big mural of a dog or wolf. Loyal reader Marie told me to check this out, and I did. Now I need your help – who is responsible for this wonderful new artwork in Asheville?
And one more note – there’s serious renovation work happening in the building that once housed the old Depot Club. The building was recently up for sale for what looked to me to be a really affordable price. Anyone know who now owns the building, and what’s happening with the renovations?
All these projects make Depot Street the center point for major action that will vault the River Arts District to even more prominence in Asheville.
