Client Spot Light
The Furman Company

The Furman Company has proposed a new mixed-use community called Aspire on 10.51 acres of previously developed land in the City of Asheville, North Carolina. Aspire will replace the Asheville YMCA building at 30 Woodfin Street and the office building at One Oak Plaza with five mixed-use buildings and two parking decks. The land-uses will include residential, office, retail, hotel, and a YMCA. The historic First Baptist Church will be the only existing building that will remain. The proposed development aims to provide a vibrant, walkable community for residents and visitors alike.

A recent article in the Citizens Time, by Ryley Ober Public Safety Reporter, explains the plans to address Project Aspire’s impact on traffic.
