Downtown Market Sold to Troy & Sons Owners

45 South French Broad Avenue is reported to have been sold to Troy & Charlie Ball, who own Troy & Sons Distilling, for $1.8 million… rumor has it that they will be expanding their spirit making enterprise but in conversation with Lance Hardcastle, who runs The Downtown Market, he said that this real estate deal has been in the works for over a year & assured that TDM is not going anywhere. The connection between Downtown & the AVLriverfront grows ever stronger with another building coming into the hands of creative independent commerce. Good News.

New Lighting for the ADC Design Build Workshop Pedestrian Bridge

Thanks to the City of Asheville & Duke Energy for putting up LED lighting for the Asheville Design Center Design Build Workshop Pedestrian Bridge (we need to come up with a better name here, eh?).  As the warm weather returns, more and more folks will be using this area.  The additional lighting should enhance the riverfront experience!
