About the Overlook
In the early 2000’s, developer Steve Middleton with Commonwealth Properties saw an opportunity in a piece of land strategically ‘overlooking’ the James River and Downtown. Sensing the coming re-urbanization of Richmond, the site was purchased and the concept of the Overlook was born.
Located at the southernmost tip of Oregon Hill, the site not only offers commanding views but incredible access to the River, Downtown, and Richmond’s finest festivals.
Local builder, WB Garrett, Inc., will act as contractor for the project.
Well into his 3rd decade in homebuilding, owner Bill Garrett has been building in many of Richmond’s finest communities since founding his company in the early 1990’s.
I am excited to work on a project like the Overlook. The setting is incredible and the opportunity to provide such a wonderful product affordably is something we love to do …” — Bill Garrett, Owner
As a former president of the Home Builders Association of Richmond, Bill’s reputation for quality is unparalleled in the marketplace. Take a drive through any neighborhood where WB Garrett has built and you will notice his commitment to the use of quality materials and refined craftsmanship.
Commonwealth Properties was founded in 1998 to develop and acquire residential properties in Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia, and Florida.
Its mission is to provide quality lifestyles for the residents it serves with an emphasis on service and competitive pricing. The company believes that each market is unique and requires strategic planning to deliver the optimum mix of product type, floor plans, finishes, and amenities given the financial constraints of the prospective resident. The company responds to this requirement with thorough market research, product planning and value engineering that enables the final development to fulfill its market niche.
