Demolition of old Fuddruckers Restaurant building begins, 4 years later

After over four years of deliberation and approvals, the long-standing Fuddruckers Restaurant in north Asheville, North Carolina, is being demolished to make way for a new development. Fuddruckers had been a local favorite for over three decades, known for its burgers. The demolition began on March 1, marking the start of a transformation for the nearly two-and-a-half-acre property. The new development, approved by Asheville leaders, will consist of a 3-5-story structure with retail on the ground floor and 186 residential units. Some residents view this change positively, seeing it as an improvement for the neighborhood, although opinions on new development vary. This project is part of a broader trend of redevelopment and higher density in the inner city of Asheville.
