Construction on Brevard Road in Asheville has piqued the curiosity of several News 13 viewers, prompting questions about the site near the intersection with Interstate 40.

Construction workers and the metal shell of a building can be seen at the site across from the Western North Carolina Farmers Market. And there's a sign that says Vannoy Construction.

A Vannoy vice president said the 27,000-square-foot, two-story building will host some of the company's operations and other offices in the building will be available for lease.

Vannoy is responsible for several major construction projects in Western North Carolina, including McDowell County's new Mission Hospital, the White Labs kitchen and Tap in Asheville and several Western Carolina University buildings.

The Vannoy office building is scheduled to be completed in October.
