Active Transportation and Real Estate – The Next Frontier (NEW DATE)
NEW DATE, SAME GREAT EVENT:
ACTIVE TRANSPORTATION AND REAL ESTATE – THE NEXT FRONTIER
Monday, November 13, 2017
Active Transportation and Real Estate: The Next Frontier explores the interconnections among walking, bicycling, and real estate. Developers, owners, property managers, designers, investors, public officials, and others involved in real estate decision making can learn from the case studies described in this report to create places that both support and leverage investments in active transportation infrastructure, such as bike lanes and trails. In the process, they can create real estate value and promote economic, environmental, and public health goals.
Active transportation was, until recently, the forgotten mode of travel. However, in recent years, investments in infrastructure that accommodates those who walk and ride bicycles have begun to reshape communities. Sometimes called “non-motorized transportation,” active transportation involves human-powered activity, primarily walking and bicycling.
Fifty percent of U.S. residents say that walkability is a top priority or a high priority when considering where to live and according to the U.S. Census, bicycling has become the country’s fastest-growing form of transportation for commuters. Should you care? Yes, especially if you are involved with Commercial Real Estate.
