I moved here about a month ago from Norfolk VA. After an extensive apartment search, I narrowed my scope down to the Shockoe Bottom area. The area offers all inclusive uniquely renovated apartments in a safe neighborhood for very fair prices. I love that there are lots of restaurants within walking distance, and downtown is just a few minutes away. I have close access to the interstate to get to work without a fuss. I'm very happy with my choice to live in Shockoe Bottom!

I’ve lived here for over a decade. Shocker Bottom is an entertainment hotspot! They’re numerous restaurants, bars, hotels and museums. A scenic bike trail along the canal and plenty of places to live. It’s a very lively and exciting place to live, play and visit.
Shockoe bottom is a nice, up and coming area. It's walkable and there's plenty to do. It's within walking distance of VCU medical center and the state capital, so there's no shortage of low-commute employment opportunities, either.
