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-20 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.
