Great Historic Place

Great apartment building with high ceilings, relatively nice amenities for the price, and historic building. The only thing is that the price does not include washer/dryer and internet/cable, whereas another Monroe Properties property - Linden Tower offers that. Other than that, management is really good and helpful; were fast in fixing problems, and returned my previous deposit in full, as far as I remember. The location is nice; it is a 18-20 min drive to school, but there are plenty of restaraunts and bars in walking distances, and it just nicer to leave downtown than in the suburbs.

It serves the purpose

There are no details about the apartment which stand out, however, the location is great for work and social gatherings. I have extended the lease twice now, and as long as I continues to reside in Richmond, it is difficult for me to think of a situation where I would leave.

Downtown Apartment

This apartment is small with few amenities, but we have a fantastic green space. It is fenced in with a little patio under an amazing willow tree and there is plenty of green in the summer time. Management is very quick to respond to and fix problems.

Getting around Monroe Ward


Monroe Ward Reviews

4 reviews
Some parts may seem sketchy, but not as much as if you further downtown. It is a very becoming place, and there are lots of young people living around. Plus, it is still in the VCU vicinity, and thus it policed by their police, not only Richmond police. There is a public library around the corner; amazing restaurant, and a famous historical inn.
It is close/basically on VCU campus so those areas aren't too unsafe. However, certain areas are very sketchy. Right behind our apartment feels very unsafe. Lots of restaurants nearby on Broad St.
It's kind of on the border with downtown; but we are surrounded by growing trendy restaraunt scene, city library, and classy Franklin street neighborhood (VCU area with its security). Thus, although there are homeless people walking around, generally, I don't feel unsafe walking by myself in the evening. In short, it's not as dangerous as people may think, but of course it is not perfect.
This isn't the safest of neighborhoods, but it s very conveniently located close to campus and has a bunch of good restaurants, bars and public transit in the vicinity!
