Wellsmith Apartments is the second of three multifamily developments at Libbie Mill-Midtown, a new 83-acre mixed-use destination in Richmond, Virginia. The property differentiates itself with a fresh approach to retreat-style living and delivering wellness to active residents in the area and sophisticated, crafted units.

The Wellsmith experience elevates residential design in the Richmond area with a welcoming atmosphere and modern and luxurious yet approachable finishes. A curated collection of convenient amenities and a range of unit sizes accommodate families and maturing professionals with social and busy lifestyles.

The use of a 12-foot modular grid helped to keep the structure simple yet elegant, efficient, and within budget. As a result, unit layouts are relatively standard across floors, allowing for the design to focus on highly visible details in key areas of the building. Wellsmith’s design bridges the interior and exterior environments with a clean and fresh aesthetic and an organic materiality, prioritizing quality to deliver the best-in-class feel its residents desire.

The building’s footprint nearly forms a figure-eight. The welcoming, south-facing side opens onto the energetic streetscape to engage with pedestrians and contribute to the neighborhood experience. Entrances are strategically located on both the north and the south facades, providing residents with inviting entry points from all directions. A centrally positioned airy and open amenity bar provides residents with highly desirable amenities. Fireplaces and entertainment kitchens encourage residents to socialize while group fitness classes foster community and co-working lounges support remote professionals. A wellness-oriented design connects human and environmental health with ample indoor-outdoor opportunities including private terraces as well as the outdoor pool deck overlooking the courtyard.

Focused on revitalization and comfort, residents at Wellsmith Apartments truly feel at home. Cozy, flexible apartment units supplemented by a host of amenities reinvigorate the lifestyles of these busy and active professionals while offering an atmosphere of ease and relaxation. Located in the up-and-coming Libbie Mill-Midtown neighborhood, Wellsmith residents take advantage of convenience for the ultimate luxury experience.
