12 South Lexington

Camille-Alberice Architects

This modern, downtown mixed-use building was created as a quality, low-maintenance structure that respects Asheville’s historic architecture. 12 South Lexington, designed by Camille-Alberice Architects was completed in 2007 and recently added to the list of architecturally successful new buildings in downtown. Overlooking Pack Square and Patton Avenue, the 7-story building includes 2 commercial spaces, 43 residential condos and 49 parking spaces. 

Green and Sustainable features:

  • Considered a smart growth project because the site was an underutilized parking lot and not a green space.
  • A great majority of the materials used in the building are recyclable:

The steel frame for the building was manufactured from over 200 recycled automobiles. 

The steel stud framing is also manufactured from recycled steel.

  • The lower roof is sodded to absorb rainwater, provide insulation and protect the inner roof membrane.
  • The wood floors are primarily of bamboo, a sustainable, harvested material.
  • The thermal envelope of the building exceeds the building code requirement by approximately 14%.
  • Aluminum, double-paned glass windows and doors, lower the energy costs for homeowners and HOA alike and can be opened to take advantage of Asheville’s fantastic weather and reduce the need for AC.
  • Parking decks under the units reduces the footprint of the building.
