Non RRHA Public Housing (Managed through Landlord)

Highland Grove

1132 Dove St. Richmond, VA 23222


Managed by:  S. L. Nusbaum Realty Co.

Nestled between the neighborhoods of Barton Heights and Highland Park is the Dove Street area, where the demolition of some public housing units and deteriorated neighborhood structures has made way for the development of a vibrant, mixed-income community with affordable and market rate rental and future homeownership opportunities.

In addition, the neighborhood offers community amenities, access to critical health and emergency facilities, and strong linkages between the surrounding community.


The Townes at River South

214 E. 9th St.820 Stockton St. Richmond 23224


Managed by: TRG Management Company

These garden-style apartments and townhouse in Blackwell provide 99 low-income units in a growing, convenient, and walkable community. Residents here have ready access to the James River Park System and all downtown Richmond has to offer. In September 2001, just one year after breaking ground for Blackwell’s first new multifamily housing, families moved into the Townes. Many of the those moving into these attractive, privately owned and managed rental units are former residents of public housing.


Highland Park Senior Apartments

1221 E. Brookland Park Blvd. Richmond, VA 23222  


Managed by:  S. I. Nusbaum Realty Co.

A 77-unit affordable housing community, Highland Park Senior Apartments is situated in the city’s Highland Park neighborhood, a quaint historic district north of downtown dating back to 1891. After years of decline in the area, the neighborhood is witnessing a resurgence in newly developed and rehabilitated properties.

RRHA offices are open Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
