Condos and Townhomes For Sale Near VCU
A large number of condos for sale around the VCU Monroe Park Campus can be found (a full list is below) with a wide range of size, styles and prices available.
In 2007, when the market was extremely active (still) in Richmond, there were over 400 condos on the market in Zone 10 (which is the Richmond VA MLS Zone that VCU occupies.) With many projects and condos to choose from, that meant choices for the parents. With a market segment that now offers between 100 and 125 at any given time, the choices have become fewer.
The most common spots for students still continue to be Iron House Place and to a lesser extent, The Marshall Street Bakery. The Overlook, in Oregon Hill, also provides a great option to house students + roommate(s) as they are larger townhomes than most of the other condos. The 212 Condos, located closer to VCU’s medical campus, has appeal to the med school crowd, as does the adjacent 2C Condos.
If the budget allows, either Gotham, The Vistas or Riverside may be an alternative, especially for the med student/intern. I am especially biased toward Riverside for the immediate future as the development of the Reynolds North Plant along the canal will finally make that section of town a very vibrant and dynamic one. It is what Riverside has lacked since its inception.
