Ask 13: What is being built on Brevard Road across from Asheville Outlets?
ASHEVILLE, N.C. (WLOS) —
There's more construction on Brevard Road near Asheville Outlets. And for Asheville visitors looking for a place to stay close to shopping, this could be the news they have been waiting for.
"What is being built next to Petco on Brevard Road across from the Biltmore Mall, where the Enterprise Car Sales used to be?" Craig Whitehead wrote Ask 13.
For some folks, Asheville Outlets will always be Biltmore Square Mall. But the spot Whitehead is talking about is right across the road. The property sits between Petco and the Country Inn & Suites hotel.
A contractor said the construction project broke ground a few weeks ago for what is going to be a Hampton Inn & Suites.
There's an older Hampton Inn, built in 1990, right around the corner off Rocky Ridge Road.
It will be moving to the new location. The owners, South Asheville Hotel, said that's when a major renovation will begin on that building. When it's complete, it will be a Hilton Garden Inn.
Officials said the new Hampton Inn & Suites should be completed about May 2018.
So, it appears Asheville's hotel boom just keeps growing.
