Richmond Cohousing is working with a developer to build a diverse, multi-generational, urban cohousing community in Richmond, Virginia.
Our solar-panel-topped, condo-style building will have 19 single-level one-, two- and three-bedroom units on four floors. Common spaces include a large dining/meeting area, community kitchen, kids’ play room, guest space, workshop/storage area, and a 2000 square foot rooftop deck with views of downtown. We plan to have multiple weekly shared meals and a collaborative rooftop garden. Construction began March 2019 with expected move-in March 2020.
Our site is in the Manchester neighborhood of Richmond. This historic area is just over the James River from downtown and walkable or bikable to many attractive features including a library, restaurants (and two breweries!), shops, playgrounds and pocket parks, a large farmer’s market, and outdoor activities at the river. Public transit and bike lines are expanding throughout the area and the site is less than 2 (easily bike-able) miles to the 50+ mile long Virginia Capital Trial walking/bike path.
Richmond is located in the heart of Virginia and is one of America’s oldest cities. Our site in the state’s capital, just east of the Blue Ridge Mountains, is a two-hour drive from both Washington DC and the Tidewater region. Richmond has the benefits of both a major metropolitan area and small historic city with amenities, charm, and convenience. The city provides residents with a diverse employment, social, and community opportunities.
Richmond Cohousing has been active for a number of years. We’ve sung, biked, played games, and volunteered together. We’ve eaten community dinners together. We’ve drafted agreements on the way we want to live together. We’ve honed our meeting format, and we’ve laughed together - a lot. Through it all, we’ve become a genuine community and are excited for others to join us with their own perspectives and personalities. Richmond Cohousing is looking to attract a diverse membership and welcomes singles, couples, families, those just starting out, and those wanting to age in place. There's still time to make your mark on the community by helping us affirm our values, finalize our designs, and create new community traditions.
