This Multiple Property Documentation (MPD) Form facilitates the nomination to the registers of garden apartment complexes in Richmond, the design of which was significant for its role in providing a new type of housing for residents within the city. The design of the garden apartment complex and its relationship to the surrounding landscape represented a distinctly mid-20th-century idea of multi-residential living. The small mass, low height, and moderate density of each building within the complex set within a landscaped environment separated them from more urban forms of the property type.
Many properties listed in the registers are private dwellings and are not open to the public, however many are visible from the public right-of-way. Please be respectful of owner privacy.
