Lack of public utilities
At the time, this land sale represented just over 7% of the total acreage in Woodfin, NC. The 191-acre tract offered long range views of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park and the French Broad River, creating an exceptional residential development opportunity only minutes from downtown Asheville. Issues included low density zoning (one house/acre), no public water/sewer connections available to the site, and proximity to a closed county landfill and a correctional facility. Post closing, Buyer successfully lobbied for increased density and was able to provide public utilities to the site.
