What is Pineview Place?
This twelve-unit condo-style West Asheville community will make use of modern modular construction techniques that lead to an efficient building process. This method can provide homeownership opportunities as soon as six months after construction begins.
The homes will be built by Kituwah Manufacturing, a modular home building company owned by the Cherokee Nation out of Cherokee, North Carolina. Kituwah Construction’s primary focus was on creating affordable homeownership for tribe elders in Cherokee before taking on projects such as Pineview Place.
Because of the modular build, the horizontal groundwork and building can be done at the same time. Once the site has been established and the foundation created, the homes will be brought in and situated on-site.
Pineview Place is a true infill project just one mile from Haywood. Once the proof of concept is in place, the intention is to bring more infill projects like it to other areas of the city for more affordable housing opportunities.
When Will They Be Built?
Our talk with Aaron indicated they’re in the final planning stages and getting things in line with subs. They expect groundbreaking to happen as soon as things are organized on their end. Aaron anticipates homes will be ready for sale as soon as mid-summer of this year.
“Hopefully we can make a difference for twelve people or families in our community. There are so many more steps and we need help spreading the word,” Aaron told us.
Who Is the Target Homebuyer?
According to the proposal made to City Council in December, affordable housing at Pineview Place is designed for individuals making less than 80% of the area’s median income. This category encompasses a wide range of individuals and families including:
- Hotel employees
- Bank tellers
- Administrative assistants
That’s just to name a few… People who make up the fabric of Asheville and who are unable to afford the rising house prices and rents in the area may now have a path to homeownership within the city limits.
How Affordable Are They?
There are twelve units in the neighborhood. There are six 1-bed 1-bath homes and six 2-bed 1-bath models.
The 1-bed home is expected to be on the market at around $199,000 and the 2-bed home will be priced at around $239,000. Buyers will need to be qualified, but may also be able to get down payment assistance through the city, county, or state-wide programs. That’s why talking with an independent mortgage lender, like Zachery Adam at GoPrime Mortgage of West Asheville, is a great first step.
