Ask 13: Any plans to save cabin at construction site?

"Up on the hill, where they have started to build a new apartment complex, there is an old-looking cabin. Are the builders or anyone else going to try and save it?" Gary Anderson wrote Ask 13. (Photo credit: WLOS staff)

A construction project in south Asheville has uncovered something interesting.

Apartments are going up in south Asheville at the corner of Sweeten Creek and Mills Gap roads, and, when crews cleared the lot of the old Plasti-form plant, they revealed a small, old building with a lot of stone work.

"Up on the hill, where they have started to build a new apartment complex, there is an old-looking cabin. Are the builders or anyone else going to try and save it?" Gary Anderson wrote Ask 13.

Anderson said he noticed the cabin from across the street at the Market Center on the corner while buying a lottery ticket.

Developer Rusty Pulliam said there are no plans to save the structure.

"There is no historical value to this structure and no electricity or water or sewer to it. It was used for storage," Pulliam said.

So, while the cabin-looking structure may appear interesting, it's only going to be around for a short while longer. Soon, 272 apartments will be going up on the 145-acre site.
