286 new apartments planned near Hominy Creek

Elevations included with preliminary site plans for a proposed apartment complex on Sardis Road show a typical view of five planned buildings at the 22-acre site.

Nearly 300 new apartments are set for 22 acres on Sardis Road, where developers hope to build work-from-home friendly apartments with a creek-side greenway, according to plans recently filed with the city of Asheville.

Developer VVS Investments, of Mills River, is hoping to gain a conditional rezoning for six three- to four-story buildings with a total 286 one- to three-bedroom apartments, according to plans on file with the city.

Art Bayluk, representing the developer, said it is still finalizing plans that will include affordable units, extra square footage for renters working from home and green space for residents near Hominy Creek, which runs along the northern edge of the 22.14-acre property.

At least 10% -15%, or about 29-43 units, will be deeded affordable at 80% of the area median income per the city’s requirements, he said, which is set by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development at $48,100 for a two-person household.
