RICHMOND, VA - The Timbers is a 240-unit garden-style apartment community located in the Old Bon Air neighborhood of Richmond, just 10 minutes from downtown. The Timbers boasts an excellent address with access to high caliber Chesterfield County Public Schools, recipients of seven awards for teaching excellence in 2015. The Timbers’ proximity to University of Richmond, VCU, and downtown Richmond make it an excellent location for students and professionals alike.
The Timbers will undergo a substantial $1.7 million capital improvement plan which will transform the interior of the property and the community amenities. At $5,000 per unit, interior renovations will include marble-like bathroom countertops, faux wood flooring, plantation blinds, and new lighting fixtures. New espresso-colored cabinets and new countertops will replace the dated 80s-style cabinets and laminate countertops. Exterior renovations include new sidewalks throughout the property, improved landscaping, pool deck repairs, a new activity station in the dog park, correcting deferred maintenance issues, and will cost approximately $2,000 per unit.
CEO Sam Foster stated, “This is our 4th acquisition in the Richmond market and we expect to add significant value with our proven technique: extensive property renovations and an experienced management team. The capital improvements serve to create an enhanced living experience for our residents while increasing property value in the long term.”
