From Staff Reports 

The developer of a controversial mixed-use development in West Asheville “has pulled the application for the project,” Asheville television station WLOS News 13 reported on Jan. 6.

“Plans called for 802 units, mostly apartments, off Bear Creek Road near Crossroads Church,” WLOS’ report noted.

The TV station added, “Neighbors packed meetings, arguing against the project. They said it was too big and would impact traffic and water quality in Hominy Creek.”

Meanwhle, the Asheville Citizen Times reported on Jan. 6 that “the controversial, 802-unit Crossroads at West Asheville apartment complex proposal has been pulled, meaning the project is ‘basically dead.’”

The ACT story also quoted Nathan Pennington, planning director for Buncombe County, saying on Jan. 6: “We just got word that the Crossroads application has been officially withdrawn. The application as it stands in its current configuration is basically dead.”

The ACT added, “The Charlotte-based development company, Catalyst Capital Partners, had sought a conditional use permit for the 68-acre on South Bear Creek Road near the Malvern Hills neighborhood in West Asheville. Plans called for 802 total living units, mostly apartments, as well as 14,400 square feet of retail space, 50,400 square feet of office space and 64,000 square feet of self-storage.’
