ASHEVILLE, N.C., Sept. 21 /PRNewswire/ — Kassinger Development Group and Pulliam Properties are breaking ground today for their latest development in the South Asheville area. Response to the availability of upscale ‘green’ condominiums and a commercial section of retail shops has been incredibly strong through the initial reservation process, and developers expect the Phase 1 sales release to go very quickly. The overall interest in Weirbridge Village proves that the local Asheville real estate market remains strong despite the slow-down in markets across the country, and demand is especially strong for environmentally-friendly construction projects locally.
“When we undertook the development of Weirbridge Village, one goal was to lead the way in green building in the Asheville area and set a standard for this type of building locally,” said Chip Kassinger of Kassinger Development Group. “We are tremendously pleased with the response to the project thus far and are very excited to break ground today and to embark on the initial construction of Weirbridge Village.”
Weirbridge Village is one of the largest registered residential LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) projects in the country setting the City of Asheville at the forefront of the green building movement. The developers will incorporate design features identified in the City’s Smart Growth Policy and are working towards achieving Gold LEED certification, the second highest ranking for the nationally recognized standard in sustainable building. By achieving this voluntary certification, the homes in Weirbridge Village will be healthier, more comfortable and use less energy while at the same time having a reduced impact on the surrounding neighborhood.
All buildings will be constructed of quality materials that promote green- building. The community will feature energy efficient plumbing and lighting, gutter systems that divert water for irrigation and controlled access under building parking to conserve green space.
Weirbridge Village will be located at the foot of the Blue Ridge Parkway nestled off Racquet Club Road in South Asheville within walking distance of shopping, restaurants and medical facilities and located next door to the Asheville Racquet and Fitness Club. The property will feature 1, 2 and 3 bedroom luxury condominiums starting in the $200’s and offer amenities such as a clubhouse, indoor pool, fitness facilities and winding sidewalks.
