Richmond Cohousing is a multi-generational, urban cohousing community in Richmond, Virginia. Our solar-panel-topped, condo-style building has 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 3000 square foot rooftop deck with views of downtown. Construction began March 2019 and members moved in late 2020 (yes, during the COVID-19 pandemic – that wasn’t in our initial visioning!).

Our community 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, 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.

While new to living together, 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.
