A heavily wooded lot on Airport Road has been cleared of trees, signaling a new project in the already busy South Asheville area.

The heavy machinery and recently cleared large wooded lot are attracting lots of attention.

"What’s being built on Airport Road next to the car wash?" Jerry Stuit wrote to Ask 13 in an email.

The lot, which was all wooded not too long ago, is right on the bend on Airport Road before the car wash as you head for Interstate 26. Property records show it's about 7 1/2 acres owned by Ingles Markets.

Ingles CFO Ron Freeman said crews are doing site work for an Ingles. Freeman said once construction begins, the store could be open in nine to 12 months.
