What is New Belgium up to, anyways???

In mid- to late-March, New Belgium will start deconstruction on their River Arts District site. On Thursday, March 7, from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m., members of New Belgium’s team will host an open house at the Isis Restaurant and Music Hall in West Asheville.

They’re not just sending one or two PR people. Representatives attending include CEO Kim Jordan, general manager Jay Richardson, sustainability director Jenn Vervier and architectural/civil engineer Edwin Fowler, as well as their contractor, designer and others.

There’s no formal presentation, just a couple hours to stop by, grab a Fat Tire and a snack and hear about a variety of projects and initiatives getting underway. Whether you want a closer look at architectural renderings or to ask the New Belgium folks a question, this is the place.

New Belgium views the open house as an opportunity to connect with the community, and also highlight their partners and projects: from multimodal transportation, brownfield development and stream restoration to job creation and functional repurposing.

More than a dozen of New Belgium’s partners will have booths and representatives at the event. Familiar companies and organizations include: AB Tech, Adolphson + Peterson Construction, Asheville Area Riverfront Redevelopment Commission (AARRC), Asheville Design Center, Asheville on Bikes, Bent Creek Institute, City of Asheville, Connect Buncombe, Economic Development Coalition for Asheville-Buncombe County, Equinox Environmental, East West Asheville Neighborhood Association, Green Opportunities, Hart Hickman, Haywood Road Corridor Committee/WABA, Ken Abbott Photography, Mattern + Craig, Old World Architectural & Salvage Co., Perkins + Will, RiverLink Inc., WECAN Neighborhood Association and WNC Communities.

If you ride your bike to the event, Asheville on Bikes will park it for free in their bike corral.

    I had a good time, too. I think I saw a couple of us... I'm sure I could feel the force of many more of us, there, however. It really was a beautiful thing!
