The Canal

The Locks offers loft-style one and two-bedroom downtown Richmond apartments. Our apartments boast modern floor plans, high-end finishes, spacious living spaces, and elegant historic details. The apartment units showcase oversized, picturesque windows that bathe the living spaces with plenty of natural light and showcasing spectacular city, river and canal views.

While all the buildings bring their own charm to the property, residents can enjoy historic architectural details such as restored wood or cement floors, exposed brick walls, soaring ceilings, steel beams, and timber columns.  Contemporary kitchens feature stainless steel appliances, granite counter tops, subway tile backsplashes, and modern flat-panel wood cabinetry.  Bedrooms at The Locks are spacious with large closets and oversized windows. Bathrooms have single or double vanities with granite countertops and tile flooring. Additional highlights of the apartments include ample closet and storage space, high-efficiency washers and dryers, and valet trash removal. The Locks downtown Richmond apartments are pet-friendly and welcome your pet to our community (some restrictions may apply)!
