Richmond Northside

Richmond Northside


South of Bellevue Avenue and the I-95 crossing, the character shifts to denser, historic neighborhoods within the Richmond city limits. Here the Fall Line enhances existing on-street bicycle connections to bring trail users to major destinations including the Diamond District, Virginia Union University, Virginia Commonwealth University Athletic Village, and Linwood Holton Elementary School. The downtown Richmond skyline beckons through the trees as you pass through a blended landscape of new and old, work, play, and home.

Vision Elements

The Fall Line serves as a Neighborhood Trail through this entire character area. Key elements of the typology here include:

  • Connections to Linwood Holton Elementary and surrounding neighborhoods
  • Upgraded underpass and transition through the Diamond District
  • Adjacency and access to Virginia Union University
