How important is walkability in communities with developing Real Estate Markets?
While it may be hard to believe, Angelenos are losing their love affairs with their cars. According to a recent Los Angeles Times article, L.A. is on the “cusp of becoming a major walkable urban area.” Seems to make sense. If you look at the development of housing and apartment living in Old Town Pasadena, people like to live where they work and play.
And, the trend is following East of Pasadena too. Monrovia has already developed multi use buildings on Myrtle in Old Town Monrovia and Azusa has huge development happening right now as well. With the Goldline slated to start running next summer , the further development of the communities where the Goldline will run will continue grow. Walkability in these communities, we suspect, will also rise.
