Fun in Downtown Asheville, NC

Here are a few shots of downtown Asheville from tonight. The fountain in Pack Square Park has been popular as of late for children and families. Even with a storm brewing in the background the water entertainment went on.

Flat Iron Building in Asheville

Continuing my downtown Asheville photo series… here is the Flat Iron Building. This vantage point is looking down Battery Park Ave. The street that runs parallel on the left side of the Flat Iron Building is Wall St. Inside are mostly business offices and at the base are restaurants, a coffee shop and a few shops. On the top floor is the (somewhat hard to find) Sky Bar.

Jackson Building in Downtown Asheville, NC

The Jackson Building is my favorite piece of architecture in downtown Asheville. Completed in 1924, it was the first skyscraper to be built in western North Carolina. Real estate developer L. B. Jackson commissioned Ronald Greene to design the Neo-Gothic style skyscraper to promote his faith in the continued strength of the 1920s local real estate market [nps.gov].
