Serving Larchmont Village, Hancock Park, and the Greater Wilshire neighborhoods of Los Angeles since 2011.

The Power of Walkability : Greater Wilshire


A key factor in the popularity of the Greater Wilshire neighborhoods is walkability. From the popular walks along 4th Street from Western to La Brea; to the abundance of new stores and eateries along La Brea; to Beverly Boulevard restaurants, shops and art galleries; and of course from just about anywhere within the area to Larchmont Boulevard…our area is what people visualize when they dream of moving back into the city.

The company Walk Score’s mission is to promote walkable neighborhoods. According to Walk Score, walkable neighborhoods are one of the simplest and best solutions for the environment, our health, and our economy. Walk Score has worked to make their Walkability score a part of real estate listings – helping to make proximity to transit, grocery stores and amenities, etc. carry weight in real estate prices.

City Lab covers the subject in a recent story titled ‘Walkability is Good for You’. The author talks about the connection between walkability and housing prices; walkability and health (including the positive impact on cognitive health); and on creativity, social interaction and civic engagement.
