Rocketts Landing

Welcome to Rocketts Landing

Upscale riverfront properties in Richmond’s urban hub

 

In the heart of Richmond lies the striking urban neighborhood of Rocketts Landing. Sprawled along the James River's north bank, residents and potential homeowners have uninterrupted river views from its numerous spacious condos and luxury townhomes. Playing host to a growing population of professionals, families, and a burgeoning dining and entertainment scene, the bustling neighborhood is one of the best places to live in Richmond if an energetic, industrial ambiance is what you’re going for. 

 

Originally the location of a factory and water tower, the compact neighborhood of Rocketts Landing offers visitors and residents much more, including a riverfront marina, several popular restaurants, and cafes, and regular community-organized events that draw spectators from around the city. 

 

Despite its urban reputation, Rocketts Landing caters to nature lovers, too, with several public parks and trails just a short walk away. Boating enthusiasts will also enjoy the convenience of the Rocketts Landing marina, allowing them to spend leisurely days exploring the city while floating along the James River.


What to Love

  • The modern, industrial vibe
  • Proximity to Downtown Richmond
  • Dedicated marina and boat docking area
  • Several popular dining options

Local Lifestyle

The Rocketts Landing community enjoys an active, outgoing lifestyle. As the local population is predominantly made up of young professionals and families, there is always something going on at the restaurants and bars in the area, and many residents enjoy socializing outdoors during the summer months. With Downtown Richmond only a few minutes away, commuting for work, shopping, and entertainment is a breeze. 


Dining, Entertainment & Shopping

Rocketts Landing is mainly known for its many trendy, industrial-themed restaurants, bars, and eateries. And at the top of most locals’ lists is the Boathouse, a modern seafood and grill restaurant with unique glass boxes overlooking the James River. Another staple is Millie’s Diner, located only a short walk from the neighborhood and has been serving Richmond’s best brunch since opening in 1989. With menu items including hearty fry-ups and jam-packed sandwiches, it’s easy to see why this retro eatery is still one of the most popular spots for comfort food in the entire city. 

 

For a unique experience and international flavors, longtime Rocketts Landing locals will undoubtedly point you to The Bombay Company, a modern fusion eatery serving dishes with authentic Latin and Indian flavors alongside an extensive drinks list. 

 

It would be remiss not to mention Rocketts Landing’s popular breweries and tap rooms, one of which is the acclaimed Stone Brewing Tap Room, where visitors try unique craft beers while stocking up on bottles or kegs of vintage or limited supply varieties to take home. Another well-received brewery is Triple Crossing Beer in nearby Fulton. With the unique distinction of being a dog-friendly venue, the brewery focuses most of its energy on creating unique, delicious craft beers while offering a limited menu of thin-crust Neapolitan-style pizzas and enticing charcuterie boards. 


Things to Do

Within a short commute to Downtown Richmond, Rocketts Landing residents can enjoy a range of fun activities in the area. Gillies Creek Park is a popular stop for BMX enthusiasts as it features Richmond’s only BMX race track within its 40-acre grassy fields. The neighborhood also hosts the annual Richmond International Dragon Boat Festival, which brings a buzz of excitement, competition, and activity to the river’s shores. 

 

For more land-based amusement, many locals turn to the popular Rocketts Landing Volleyball Courts, which also serve as a great spot to meet your neighbors and join a friendly match between residents of the surrounding condo buildings. 


Schools

Despite being primarily known for its luxury riverside location, Rocketts Landing offers residents excellent schooling opportunities in the vicinity, including:
