Pre-Leasing Begins in July for Penstock Quarter Apartments at Libbie Mill – Midtown

The opportunity to rent in RVA’s newest, innovative community starts soon

HENRICO CO., VA., May 14, 2018 – The continuing growth of the RVA region is fueling demand for apartment living just as Penstock Quarter at Libbie Mill-Midtown plans to open. Libbie Mill-Midtown developer Gumenick Properties is putting the finishing touches on the five-story, 327 apartment community, with pre-leasing scheduled to begin in July and occupancy beginning this November.  

“Potential residents have been asking us for months when they can move in,” says Skip Nash, Gumenick’s vice president of property management. “We anticipated there would be strong demand for new construction, high-end apartments in the Midtown area, and we are pleased by the constant inquiries and enthusiasm for Penstock Quarter.”

Nash attributes that interest to the distinguishing elements of the community and the development as a whole:

  • The scale of Penstock Quarter’s amenities —which include an expansive outdoor courtyard featuring a resort-style swimming pool, multiple grilling stations and outdoor games; a well-appointed clubroom; a 24/7 fitness center; conference and media rooms; a pet washing station; storage space for bikes, kayaks and paddle boards; and a package delivery locker system
  • The range in size of apartment homes that will be available, which include studios through three bedrooms, and will feature the latest finishes and private balconies with views of Libbie Lake, the pool and surrounding nature
  • The ever-expanding amenities available within Libbie Mill- Midtown which today include the new Henrico County Libbie Mill library, Shagbark - one of only two AAA Four-Star restaurants in Richmond, Libbie Lake and pier, walking/biking trails, a hair salon, and personal fitness training, with plans in place for new retail and office space

Libbie Mill – Midtown is designed to be unlike any community in Central Virginia, exemplifying the best practices in new urban development. Gumenick Properties has created a 15-minute livable community that is the new anchor to the growing Midtown area. Located midway between downtown and the far western suburbs, Libbie Mill – Midtown residents and businesses are 15 minutes from all of RVA’s major job centers, retail areas, schools, and dining and entertainment.

Penstock Quarter is the next phase of residential living options at Libbie Mill – Midtown, following the continued sales of townhomes and condominiums. Ultimately, the community will be home to 1,300 residents, making it the largest revitalization project in the 400-year history of Henrico County. In addition, plans are underway for it to be one of the region’s largest employment and office centers with up to 1,000,000 square feet of leasable commercial and office space.
