ArchitectureRichmond examines Hathaway Tower

Rising 13 stories in Stratford Hills the tower is hard to miss.

Architecture Richmond which periodically takes a close up look at Richmond buildings has turned its gaze south of the river and landed on Hathaway Tower. The tower was built in 1972, stands at 13 stories, and is mainly serves seniors in the area.

Hathaway Tower appears most alien from the leafy residential neighborhoods to its immediate north. Behind the squat brick 1960s ranches, its faceted form rises, a more unapologetic expression of the same era. Though it lacks serious competition, Hathaway tower stands as the most enduring monument of Richmond’s southwest side.
