The Miles Building, Asheville, NC

Full Exterior Restoration

Asheville hosts one of the best collections of Art Deco architecture in the country and right in the center of it all, this landmark brick and terra cotta building serves as a cornerstone of Asheville’s heritage. Anchored on a key downtown intersection fronting Haywood Street, College Street, Battery Park Avenue and Wall Street, the building was preserved for three generations of the Miles family and was just recently sold to Stephen and Mary Ann West of Asheville. The new owners made it adamant that they wanted to leave everything as is and maintain the look the building had when it was built in 1903.

Restoration included brick and terra cotta restoration and cleaning, tuckpointing, patching of damaged terra cotta units, waterproofing, wooden window unit restoration, and the application of a faux granite finish to the concrete steps of the entrance.
