We’re bringing a new retirement lifestyle to Richmond’s West End

For more than 36 years, Lakewood has offered a high-quality, faith-based retirement lifestyle in Richmond’s West End. Now, we’re embarking on an exciting expansion that includes bold, new residences with a unique hybrid design and individual garages, brand-new apartment homes, underground parking, and a host of exciting new amenities. The surrounding campus will also see enhancements, including multi-use lawns, walking paths, pavilions and a beautiful new lake.

A Peek into our process


Moving Forward

The LifeSpire of Virginia Board of Directors gave approval to move forward with our expansion plans in October 2015. With a master plan in mind, the details of design and development will be ongoing.


Accepting Reservations

We began accepting Priority Deposits in February 2016. The Visionaries Club Priority Program will continue into Fall 2016*, when the Information Center will open and Priority Reservation appointments will begin. When the Priority Program ends, reservations will still be taken, but the Visionaries Club benefits may no longer be available.


Construction Begins

When 70% of homes have been reserved with a 10% deposit, construction will begin. We anticipate that this will occur in Winter 2017.*


Construction Completed

Construction is expected to be complete in 2019.



The newest members of the Lakewood community will move in and begin enjoying the finest retirement lifestyle in Richmond’s West End.
