THE EAGLE MARKET PLACE TEAM
Every Eagle Market Place team member came into the mixed-use construction project with considerable experience and a respect for the
importance of the task at hand. Thanks to our partnership with Mountain Housing Opportunities—a longtime Asheville client—we
successfully completed a challenging, unpredictable project with aggressive schedules and strict deadlines.
Eagle Market Place is a six-story, cast-in-place concrete and wood framed
apartment recently constructed for Mountain Housing Opportunities and
Eagle Market Streets Development Corporation. The building will include
62 units of mixed-income housing above one floor of retail.
Three historical buildings bordering Eagle Market Place (The Dr. Collette
Building, The Del Cardo Building, and the Ritz Building) were incorporated
into the project in the historically-significant Asheville neighborhood
known as “The Block.”
Of the three buildings, two were preserved, with renovations to the outside
and upfits to the interior to provide office space for the apartment complex
and retail space. An additional section of new mixed-use construction was
added to provide more retail space. The last of the three buildings had its
interiors renovated, but the facade was saved, offering commercial office
space to potential tenants.

Mixed-Use Construction Project in
In the 1940’s, The Block was home to over 40 African-American owned
businesses, and Eagle Market Place is still committed to that same cultural
diversity, honoring the roots it grew from. This mixed-use construction
project is expected to be the new anchor to help revitalize downtown
Asheville’s historically African-American business district.
After it opened, Eagle Market’s 30 affordable and 32 market rate apartments
quickly filled up. Leaf, a well-known non-profit organization local to Asheville,
is the largest of three new tenants in the Del Cardo office building.
