BC Health & Human Services Addition Open at 40 Coxe Avenue


The Buncombe County Health and Human Services addition at 40 Coxe Avenue and attached public parking garage are now open to the public. As the parking area and building entrance have moved, BCHHS would like to make the public aware of changes that may impact their ability to access the building and find parking in this area. 

New Parking Garage at 40 Coxe Avenue:

There is a new, 8-story public parking garage located at the corner of Sears Alley and Coxe Avenue. This 24/7/365 parking deck will be open to the public and will add parking for an additional 664 vehicles in downtown. The new garage frees up additional surface lot spaces in the downtown area which helps ease the strain on parking.  To make the other lots easier to find, the County partnered with Explore Asheville Convention & Visitors Bureau which added new parking signage to its wayfinding system.

To accommodate the increased traffic from the new parking garage, Buncombe Street is now a two-way street while Commerce Street remains a one-way street.  (see map below for traffic pattern change)

New Parking Area for Visitors to BCHHS at 40 Coxe Avenue:

Visitors to BCHHS can park at no charge in the new parking deck during their visit to 40 Coxe Avenue by simply bringing their parking ticket inside for validation during their visit to the building. Handicapped parking spaces are available on every level of the garage.

BCHHS Building Addition and Services:

The main entrance to Buncombe County Health and Human Services at 40 Coxe Avenue has moved to the new addition. The new entrance is closer to the parking garage and the corner of Sears Alley and Coxe Avenue. Greeters will be in the lobby to assist visitors to the building.

BCHHS services located at 40 Coxe Avenue include:

  • Adult Protective Services
  • Childcare Subsidy
  • Food Assistance
  • Medicaid
  • Work First
