The Locks is an adaptive reuse of historic warehouses situated directly on the Kanawha and Haxall Canals. The four historic buildings of The Locks were originally built along the canal system as warehouses for the tobacco industry. These urban apartments are centrally located in Richmond’s business district and are close to dining, shopping and entertainment venues. A loft apartment home at The Locks puts you in the middle of anywhere you want to be.
