Walkable communities are traditionally known to benefit resident’s physical well-being and stimulate good health. Not to mention, communities with high walkability to nearby destinations see lower crime rates, increased economic activity and an overall stronger community. Developing markets, restaurants, museums, and parks within walking distance of one another is an essential element in urban living today.
Urban Development in Dallas
As urban development begins to make this a primary focus, we’re seeing city centers become a hub for entertainment and connection. For instance, the Arts District of Dallas enjoys ample walkability, offering a balance between work life and social life. Millennials and Baby Boomers are moving away from the suburbs and in search for a new community environment. These professionals have a desire to drive less without sacrificing their ability to do the things they enjoy. They’re interested in the convenience of being centrally located to work, trails, nightlife, errands and entertainment.
This demand is causing a rising need for walkable communities, one that Dallas is transforming itself to meet. Office buildings like Trammell Crow Center is a prime location for those interested in a centralized workplace that is surrounded by fine arts, foods and culture. In addition, a multi-use residential community, 2000 Ross, is currently underway in the area and will also offer substantial walkability and convenience. Being centrally located within the Arts District and other Dallas districts, Trammell Crow Center offers its office tenants the luxury of exploring the town before, during and after work.
