JEFFERSON — New modern luxury apartments, as part of the new apartment complex located at 327 and 329 Academy Street in Jefferson, are finally complete and tenants are now moving in.
The groundbreaking for the apartments took place on July 18, 2019.
The third apartment building on Long Street, which is located behind the newly completed buildings, is expected to be ready to move in tenants in August.
An open house was held on June 12 from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m. for the community to tour the new building and speak with representatives from Allen Yates Realty or Ashe Rental Agency. Several people also scheduled showings at this time.
Present at the open house and available to answer questions or give tours were General Contractor Alan L. Herman of ALH General Contractor, Allen Yates the developer and owner of the project, and owner of Allen Yates Realty in Boone, Ashe Rental Agency Assistant Operations Manager Amber Shim and Ashe Rental Agency Leasing Coordinator Heather Shroyer.
Yates said he was excited to bring such a project to the town of Jefferson.
“The need for new upscale multifamily properties in Ashe County was a big deciding factor for us to bring this project to the town of Jefferson,” Yates said. “Mrs. Cathy Howell and everyone from the town and planning departments have been really good to work with”.
Yates also would like to thank everyone that has been involved with this project all those who helped make this a very successful venture.
