Life The Way It Should Be

Discover The Resort Lifestyle You Deserve Everyday

More than forty-five years ago, East West Communities began development on Brandermill, the nationally award-winning planned community in Richmond, Virginia. With each new community since, we’ve continued to build on our heritage of innovation and achievement. Our superior home design, environmental stewardship, and imaginative amenities continue to attract new homebuyers and sustain our national reputation and industry leadership. We believe the ideal community combines the best of traditional neighborhoods with modern lifestyle enhancements.

East West Communities has received national acclaim for developing the Best Community in America for three (3) different communities. Every year the National Association of Home Builders and the Urban Land Institute assemble panels of expert judges and select new planned housing developments somewhere in the United States that they judge to be the best. The criteria includes diversity of housing, sales success, environmental sensitivity, infrastructure, and quality of life, and more. The award-winning communities include Hallsley, Woodlake, and Brandermill. These three East West communities are located in Midlothian, Virginia – a suburb of Richmond with a population of around 60,000. No other developer in the country has EVER won three “Best Communities in America” awards! And certainly no other 6.8 square mile area contains three winning communities.

Since 1973, we have developed 25 award-winning communities providing homes for more than 20,000 families. East West Communities has expanded from its beginnings and is now actively developing numerous communities in the metro Richmond area, the Hampton Roads region of Virginia, and Orlando and Jacksonville, Florida.
