The Town Council approved a new development on Valley Boulevard by the owners of 4 Forty Four. The proposed office building is just before the water treatment plant driving north to Boone on Valley Boulevard.
The property is approximately 5 acres and will include 10 short term rental residences and a second office building or 16 residences and no second office building.
The Middle Fork River runs through the property and the Troyers have committed to provide a conservation easement for the Middle Fork Greenway.
The project is planned to be environmentally sensitive by allowing restoration of the river for the Middle Fork Greenway, solar energy for the offices, preservation of trees and preservation of the forested upland portion of the property.
