I love living in a Lawson community in Virginia Beach. Our apartment is so spacious and the staff is wonderful! Any time we have called with an issue, maintenance comes right over to address it.

HRDC has made many business decisions since being created in 1988 but partnering with Lawson to plan, develop, build and manage our LIHTC properties was one of our best!
