In 1971, HHHunt developed its first master-planned community in Blacksburg, Virginia. Hethwood included four distinct neighborhoods with single-family homes, apartment homes, and an array of luxurious amenities never seen during that time. Since then, we have developed 19 master-planned communities in Richmond, Raleigh, and Smith Mountain Lake with eight currently under construction and two in the planning phase. Our master-planned community division, HHHunt Communities, has become one of the largest and most celebrated real estate developers in the mid-Atlantic. We want to take this opportunity to share our long history of home building excellence.
Redefining the Suburbs
In 1985, HHHunt purchased 300-acres off Broad Street west of Interstate 64 in Henrico County. At the time, there were very few homes or businesses in the area. However, Harry H. Hunt, III had a vision to make this 300-acres into a destination where homeowners of all ages and backgrounds could enjoy a self-contained environment with schools, shopping centers, offices, medical facilities, libraries, and churches. Wellesley was born. When finished, Wellesley included 800 homes in eighteen neighborhoods with a variety of world-class amenities. We then set out to develop other master-planned communities in the western part of Henrico including Wyndham, Twin Hickory, and Wyndham Forest.
At HHHunt, our Vision is to improve the world and how people live by creating meaningful experiences and places of great distinction. Our team of professionals is always seeking new ways to cultivate friendships and lasting relationships between homeowners. Whether that be through our unique method of designing our master-planned communities or the community amenities we develop we want our homeowners to feel that their community is a place that enhances their quality of life. Fortunately, we have been successful in that endeavor having won over 100 awards for our various master-planned communities including:
- Best Residential Development in the Southeast
- Best Mixed-Use Community by the Urban Land Institute Virginia District Council
- Best Community to Raise a Family by the Richmond Times-Dispatch
- Top 10 Master Planned Communities by Richmond Magazine
- Developer of the Year by the Home Builders Association of Richmond
- Community of the Year by the Home Building Association of Virginia
We are always innovating and learning about new opportunities to enhance the lives of our residents. Our newest master-planned communities in Richmond and Raleigh offer a wealth of amenities including the Connexion at River Mill, our first Active RVA designated community, the Conservatory at Mosaic at West Creek, and outdoor recreation access at Reserve at Wackena. We continue to think of new ways to impress and delight our homeowners because that is who we are.
