Within a metro exists two types of environments: the “walkable urban” and “drivable suburban” areas occurring in center city or outlying towns. While one might consider an urban core easy to navigate on foot, which walkable cities are more walkable than others?
- Rounding out the top three, New York City, D,C. and Boston have the most rental spaces within walkable urban areas, or WalkUPs.
- Los Angeles, Baltimore, Houston and Miami fell into the third tier – or lower-middle walkable urbanism.
- On average, premiums for WalkUP rents are double what they are in drivable suburban locations.
