Super great for its price and location

I've been with this property management for over a year, and so far they have been only helpful to us (we'll see how it'll be after we move out). The location is amazing, and, most of the time, you can find a free street parking. However, also because of the location it won't be super quiet like in a suburb, but it's not as noisy as in the fan. There are so many trendy restaraunts within walking distance and VCU shuttle is right across the stress from us; UR shuttle is couple blocks up but still close. Richmond City library is right across the street, and Franklin street is generally very pleasant and classy. The condition of apartments are decent but the views, big windows, and high ceilings are amazing; although because of the same big windows, it gets pretty cold during winters. The maintenance team cleans and fixes everything super fast. The only big drawback is that Dominion electricity charges us like crazy, even though we don't spend more than people living in Henrico. There are free washers and dryers, and the residents are mostly young people but not too young, like undergrads.

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!
