Nature and Connectivity Meet in New WNC Office | Life
Over 1,700 square feet of newly renovated Class A office space is now leased at Junaluska Lake. Construction of the Evangelism Foundation building on North Lakeshore Drive, which includes a ready-to-move-in and custom-build space, was completed in early May.
“With the great view of the lake, walking trails and more, we believe that as COVID restrictions ease, professional services will want their offices to be in more remote areas of the state,” said Mack King, Senior Broker at Wesley Community Development, consultant to the Space Vision Foundation.
“We provide a connection to a technology backbone and uninterrupted power supply that is rarely seen west of Asheville and rarely available to small businesses,” said Barby Bowser, Foundation director of communications, who works in the building since its opening in 2005.
The building was originally equipped as a global headquarters to support the design and hosting of websites for faith-based organizations in the early days of the Internet. With a commercial generator, fiber internet access, and recent technology updates, the space is well-equipped to accommodate businesses and workers leveraging the potential of cloud computing and remote workspaces.
The Foundation’s board of directors and its president, Jane Boatwright Wood, invited Wesley Community Development to join the project. Wood says, “As a Foundation, we have a call to be a catalyst for innovation and transformation. Using our building to outfit small businesses and satellite offices in western North Carolina to do their jobs in a technology-rich and nature-rich environment is a plan that we have developed over the past few years and that we are delighted to launch.
Those whose work complements the Foundation, such as the financial, legal or estate planning industries and nonprofits, will be a great fit in the newly renovated space. Professional services such as architects, engineers or real estate agencies would also benefit from the location. Customers of these small businesses would enjoy the convenience of easy access from a major highway, ample parking, a disabled-accessible entrance, and serene surroundings.
