It seems like there isn’t a month that goes by without the announcement of a new apartment building in Manchester. While Richmond, Virginia has lots of apartment construction going on, the development of new Manchester apartments has to be at the top of that list.
Just check out this Boomtown article by Richmond Magazine to get a sense of the scale of what is being built. The volume of development that is taking place is truly amazing. Plus there is a cool mix of renovation and new construction depending on your tastes.
One of the most appealing features of Manchester is that it is a highly walkable neighborhood. With the rapid addition of new apartments, restaurants, and businesses, it is only continuing to get better and better as time goes by. Plus, you can’t beat the commute! If you work in Manchester, or downtown Richmond, the commute is walkable, bikeable, or an extremely short drive. There is also readily available interstate access to both I-95 as well as the Downtown Expressway.
