Brookland Park Boulevard

Brookland Park Boulevard

Richmond: Virginia's Authentic Capital

Originally developed in the 1890's as a streetcar suburb, the Brookland Park commercial corridor served to support its wealthy surrounding neighborhoods with community amenities such as a theater, post office, banks, bakeries and other goods and services all within walking distance. 

While suburban sprawl took a toll on the corridor during the 1980's, the area is currently experiencing renewed public and private investment. With new residents moving into the neighborhoods in the North Side, both income and property levels are rising at a pace faster than citywide averages.
