Biltmore Park in Asheville is a new "town" filled with shops, restaurants, entertainment venues and condos. You'll find national chain stores (like REI & Barnes & Noble), restaurants (like P.F. Chang), an upscale YMCA, and a 15-theatre movie plex and a swanky Hilton Hotel.
Located on the south side of Asheville, Biltmore Park is the vision of Jack Cecil, grandson of George Vanderbilt, the builder of the Biltmore Estate. “It is all about creating a community, communities like we knew as children, where families can work, shop and recreate without leaving their neighborhood.” This area was George Vanderbilt family's former dairy land.
"This isn’t a new vision, it is an updated vision that my great grandfather had years ago when he built Biltmore Village. In the early 1900’s Biltmore Village had a train station, a church, a hospital, stores, apartments, and houses. It was a self sustaining community. Biltmore Park is nothing more than a modern day interpretation of that same community minded vision."
Humming with life, this vibrant town center is a fresh re-imagining of the Main Streets of the past, made to meet today’s standards of smart growth, green living and reduced driving. Throughout the year, enjoy Concerts in the Park, a free summer concert series that takes place every Saturday evening, a holiday lighting, farmer's market, fundraisers, and other exciting events.
A short walk connects you to exciting shops, lively restaurants, cafés and gathering spots, spas and health clubs, as well as a range of dynamic businesses and employers. National retailers will sit side by side with one-of-a-kind stores that have a unique Asheville flair.
As Asheville's first dense mixed-use community, Biltmore Park Town Square’s 42 acres offer an artful blend of recreation destinations, homes and premier office space.
