With its ideal locality at the junction of Interstates 64 and 170, immediately west of the City of St. Louis, Richmond Heights is just minutes away from excellent transportation options, educational facilities, sports venues, a number of popular cultural attractions and the landmark Forest Park. The Richmond Heights station brings the MetroLink light rail system to the city, making surrounding areas more accessible for residents of the community.
Richmond Heights is among one of the area’s most desirable communities in which to reside. This mature city is characterized by beautiful residential neighborhoods and a peaceful atmosphere that is second to none in this Midwest region. Because of its tree-lined streets (supported by a municipal planting and replacement program), the city earned the distinction of being a “Tree City USA.” The National Association of Forestry bestows this honor upon selected cities across the country.
High-quality homes in a wide variety of architectural styles aid in making Richmond Heights the ideal place to raise a family. A great number of the residences in Richmond Heights display attributes related with the Arts and Crafts period, which includes such features as hardwood floors, stained glass and leaded windows, high ceilings and distinct architectural styling. Modern ranches, traditional two-story Tudor-style and Georgian-style homes — even a few Mediterranean-style homes — are also part of the mix.
In addition to its attractive selection of home styles, Richmond Heights features a number of spacious apartment complexes and two assisted living facilities to accommodate its senior population. What’s more, one of the nation’s premier high-rise, loft-style condominium projects is located here. The Boulevard-Saint Louis offers residents an upscale living experience with approximately 300 luxury rental apartments and condominiums. The Boulevard houses a multitude of popular brand name retailers, such as Soft Surroundings, Ann Taylor Loft and Crate & Barrel, among others.
