The difference between Richmond Dairy’s apartment homes and other downtown apartments (Richmond, VA) is the unique, historic architecture of living in a renovated dairy along with the can-do service from our friendly and helpful staff. The Richmond Dairy participates in the federally-funded LIHTC program. This allows us to provide luxury apartments and first-rate amenities at surprisingly affordable rents. Offering a variety of floor plans - efficiency, 1 bedroom, 2 bedroom and 2 bedroom loft (up to 1,075 sq. ft.) - you are sure to find what suits you best.. The Dairy also boasts a 24-hour exercise facility, free off street parking and two elevators for convenience. Or meet your friendly neighbors in the Clubroom, with a pool table and kitchen for you to enjoy. A luxury apartment you love with a surprisingly affordable rent? AND it’s guaranteed to stay affordable? Sounds like a smart combination to us. So what’s the catch? Why isn’t everyone doing this? The answer is that not everyone qualifies. To be eligible, your household’s total income must not exceed certain set maximums. Please see the guidelines below.
