Condos for Sale @ Rocketts Landing
Rocketts Landing is located along the James River on the eastern edge of Downtown Richmond. When fully complete, it will be a multi-phase, mixed-use project of condos, town homes, commercial office, retail, and restaurant spaces, with community amenities interspersed throughout.
Rocketts was Richmond’s first stab at ‘New Urbanism,’ an attempt to recreate centuries of urban development with newly constructed, high-density, mixed-use properties. Construction is far from complete and zoning allows for the developers to pivot relatively easily to meet the demand of the market, meaning the final chapters of Rocketts will be written well into the 2020’s.
The condominium component of Rocketts consists of 4 buildings: Sky Line and Fall Line (both designed similarly), 210 Rock (the most contemporary of the bunch), and Cedar Works (a renovated historic warehouse). Rocketts, as a whole, has probably done the best job of all the condo projects in Richmond at providing diversity not only in design, but also in size. The units at Rocketts vary from smaller one bedroom units below 1,000 SF to over 3,000 SF, making it a popular choice for empty-nesters seeking more space than the typical 2 bedroom condo provides. In addition to the condos, Rocketts offers townhomes of various sizes, finishes, and styles, meaning a wide variety of living options for all who choose to call Rocketts home.
Other amenities at Rocketts include ample parking, river access, boat slips, an exercise facility, access to the Capital Trail, and walkability to several upscale restaurants. And since much of the residential development is technically located across the county line in Henrico, a lower real estate tax helps lower the cost of ownership.
