Sparked by a revitalization in the 2000s, the Arts District was created as a hub for creativity, commercial activity and economic development. Downtown RVA’s Arts District combines all the elements of a thriving downtown: cultural institutions, urban living and amenities, a wide range of shops and restaurants and a distinctive identity of eclectic expression.
The Arts District features recently converted and restored apartments in the historic buildings of the neighborhood that offer a quality of life centered around the vibrant energy of the neighborhood. While your home above the streets and storefronts offers sanctuary, you couldn’t be closer to the excitement and experiences throughout downtown’s Arts District.
