New Heights is a multi-generational neighborhood located 6 miles from downtown Asheville (located off Old Haywood Road). Including single family homes, two-story townhomes, and single-level townhomes specifically designed for aging adults (55+), this neighborhood will be accessible to people in all stages of life; a place where 98 households of all ages and backgrounds will build strong, stable futures.
Construction will be broken into two phases. Phase 1 will include the construction of 38 homes. The first home began in spring of 2020 and the last one will close in 2023. Eight of these homes will be single-level townhomes specifically for aging adults, thanks to generous support from local retirement community, Deerfield. Funding from Deerfield and its newly formed Charitable Foundation includes a Full House Sponsorship ($55,000) on each of the 8 units, as well as $50,000 to research and develop senior-oriented house designs, financing options and HOA management. The first two Aging in Place units closed in October 2021. Learn more about this partnership.
