Review by: Tamara Zahn

walking the walkI found this recent study Walking the Walk: How Walkability Raises Housing Values in U.S Cities interesting. It helps advocate -- and quantify-- that Downtown living is a good investment, not just fun! Walkable Downtowns contribute to individual wealth by increasing the asset of most individuals' biggest asset. I've attached a summary of the report, the full report and a recap of the report from CEOS for Cities I'm looking for additional ways to sell Downtown living. This report provides one more tool. I find all research conducted by Joe Cortright and commissioned by CEOs for Cities is particularly thoughtful and pertinent to our work Downtown.
