Kress Building

Kress Building

The Kress Building Built in 1928, this historic landmark is located between Pack Square and Pritchard Park, a park where the Friday night Asheville Drum Circle meets. Renovated in 2002, the building’s historic preservation credit has passed on to property owner’s reducing their real estate taxes in Asheville. Downstairs in the Neoclassical Kress Emporium, over 80 artists display and sell their masterpieces.
Residents have roof top access and access to a exercise room. Studio, one and two bedrooms units range from 600 to 1,400 square feet. Condominium units in the Kress Building start in the $100,000′s and go up to $500,000.

The Kress Building is close to restaurants like Farm Burger and Table and walking distance from the Altamont Theatre Asheville’s “Listening Room” where you can hear great music from Bluegrass to sophisticated Jazz.  The Kress Building lifestyle works for people who enjoy all that downtown Asheville has to offer from the great views at the Skybar to the farm to cup coffee at Green Sage Cafe.  If you love architecture the style of the Kress Building you appreciate that downtown Asheville is a treasure trove of great American architecture. Why are there so many architectural gems in Asheville? Asheville suffered a greater financial hardship than all others from the 1929 Crash, shouldering a per capita debt burden that was the greatest in the country. Today, the liability that city carried for almost 50 years has turned it into an American architectural treasure.
