Richmond has made a major comeback in recent years and has become a great place to live. With implemented safety programs and a stronger police presence, Richmond has thrived as a safer place for a range of people and families.
The former Richmond Shipyards have been transformed into multiunit residential areas and over the last twenty years have grown with the expansion of more condos and townhomes. Residents can enjoy a marina or suburban lifestyle with a seamless blend of waterfront and hilltop properties.
Close to outlying cities such as Emeryville, San Pablo, El Cerrito and Berkeley, Richmond borders a pleasant array of Bay neighborhoods.
