URGENT: 482 Bedroom Apartment + Townhouse Complex Proposed for Overlook Road

A Greensboro developer is proposing a 482 bedroom apartment and townhouse complex at the already congested Overlook Road.   According to the application, there will be 7 residential buildings with a total of 231 apartments (368 bedrooms) and 30 townhouse buildings (114 bedrooms).   This area of land is in the County (not the City) and is due to go before the Buncombe County Board of Adjustment on June 14th at noon.

The site plan is here and the application is here.  Overlook is an extremely congested road already, especially during school and rush hours.  We just found out about this proposal and are working to evaluate our options.  We are also starting a petition to oppose it.  If we can add your name to the list opposing this project, please email me with your name(s) and address at

Thank you and we will keep you updated on how you can help.
