VIA Where You Live Makes All The Difference: An Opportunity Map of the Richmond Region (PDF), a 26-page look at the health, transportation, housing, and education opportunities in the area.
Where You Live Makes All the Difference: An Opportunity Map of the Richmond Region maps over twenty-two socioeconomic metrics to illustrate the role that where one lives has on accessing those characteristics that everybody looks for when deciding where to live: good schools, safe homes, close to work, nice neighborhood, etc. Where we live directly impacts the schools our children attend. It also impacts our ability to get a sustainable home mortgage, our potential job opportunities if we don’t have a car, our ability to create wealth, and provide for our families. In short, where you live directly influences your ability to access the opportunity cycle – that is the opportunity to get a good education, a good job, purchase a home, build wealth, and pass that wealth along to your children. Brian Koziol, author of the report and HOME’s housing research analyst stated, “Because of past policies, we have isolated residents into areas of low opportunity. We must figure out a way to pave the way for them to create generational wealth and opportunities for their children.”

A press release sent out last week:
On May 11, 2013, Church Hill neighborhood will welcome new home owners, thanks to historic Nolde Bakery Condominiums opening their doors and selling luxury property.
Seven years ago, the building was converted into condominium residences – 23 of the 77 homes were sold. With a rapidly deteriorating housing market, Nolde’s owner, Marathon Development Group, decided to lease the remaining 54 units.
“The Nolde Bakery building is a historic property with stories and memories that Richmonders will always remember. We recognized its ability to become a very special residence and converted the spaces into modern condos while preserving the nostalgic essence,” explained owner Buddy Gadams. “As the developer, I was disappointed in 2006 when the declining housing market delayed our plans. But today the economy has turned around and the time feels right to resume sales. The community now has the opportunity to own, what we believe, is a very unique place to call home.”
Existing residents who rent will have the opportunity to purchase their homes. Additionally, Nolde is creating a VIP list for those who are interested in getting an exclusive preview of two new designer models before the grand opening to the public – and a chance to purchase early at introductory prices. People can sign-up on the website for VIP status at noldecondos.com. Residences range from 1 bedrooms starting at the $150’s to 2 bedrooms from the $190’s. Another incentive for interested homebuyers is that Nolde management has negotiated favorable mortgage rate programs with their preferred lenders.
Nolde Sales Manager Liz McCormick, who resides as a tenant in the building too, said, “Church Hill has always been known for its charm and character, now it also offers a unique condo living experience, available at very reasonable prices that fare better than renting. Nolde owners will have a luxury home with secure, gated garage parking and a gated entrance, generous amenities such as a movie theatre room, fitness center, resident lounge, a grilling area and dog park, and newly renovated space throughout the stylish building.” McCormick continued, “Since I personally live at Nolde, I’m thrilled to be both a neighbor and ambassador for this historic landmark that has stood the test of time, from baking to beautiful homes.”
The official grand opening kicks off the weekend of May 11th – for more information and to be included in the VIP early preview list, call 804.225.5500 and visit www.noldecondos.com.

[…] how much I adore Dutch & Company, a new Church Hill spot whose quaint dining room and quiet, vintage décor belie the crazy amount of talent tucked within its four walls. […]
Like the lived-in vibe of its neighborhood, Dutch & Company is one of those restaurants that feels as if it’s been doing its thing for years — only its thing is constantly innovating and its years are just the beginning of many to come.
