It takes courage to try something new, to take life in a new direction. But for a generation who made social movements mainstream, settling into a lifestyle that meets every day with purpose only seems natural.

The 55+ Agri-Hood at Chickahominy Falls likes to do things differently, too. Tucked just outside of Richmond, Va., this development is a brand-new way to move 55 and forward designed with incredible intention, never thought of before. From the most obvious distinctions, down to the smallest detail, everything has been put into place for good reason.

A working farm and market for fresh produce, prepared meals and local tastes from the on-site Woodside Farms and beyond.

A farmhouse campus with a pool, fitness centers, firepit, Silo Bar and a Lifestyle Coordinator to custom create a sense of belonging that can only come from the place that welcomes everyone in true Southern fashion.

The mix of main-level living options, award-winning amenities, social clubs and packed calendar of events give individuals the freedom to make their match.

From the Judges
The community element is strong in this development—and clearly working. The comprehensive entry includes a host of amenities, including a working farm. The programming around the development definitely goes the extra mile to create the community piece.
