New Kent County, Virginia  Economic Development Authority

Neighborhoods, Homes and Land

While New Kent County is one of the fastest
growing counties in Virginia it has planned
its growth to maintain its rural atmosphere.
New Kent’s Commercial growth is
concentrated around and near the four I-64
interchanges and along the Rt. 33 Industrial
Corridor. The majority of its residential
growth is taking place in Planned Unit
Developments however all types of housing
options are available. In-between two major
Metropolitan Statistical Areas, New Kent continues
to offers its residents the advantages of a rural
community -- clean air and water, abundant
outdoor recreation, a low crime rate, low taxes,
and friendly people.


Five Lakes, built around Brookwoods Golf Club in Quinton, is the most established residential subdivision in the county.  Numerous cluster style residential developments are under construction in the rural parts of the county.
