A historic clock tower in the Enka community will be spared from the wrecking ball. 

A  press release by the Greensboro based developer Samet Corp.  says plans are in the works to preserve  the 92-year-old tower. 

“All parties involved in the development of this area recognize the historic role the monument plays in Asheville’s history, and we would like the tower to stand for generations to come,” Brian Hall, director of development, said in a press release.
