GWSB's Leinberger Releases Data on Walkable Urban Places

GWSB Gets Ready for Students' Return
Walkable Urban Places

Suburban sprawl is out. Walkable cities are in. That's the upshot of a new, major report on "Walkable Urban Places" or "WalkUPs" released today by GWSB's Christopher B. Leinberger, Charles Bendit Distinguished Scholar and Research Professor of Urban Real Estate.

The report - the subject of a recent Wall Street Journal story and focus of today's conference co-hosted by the School's Center for Real Estate and Urban Analysis and the nonprofit Urban Land Institute - offers evidence, based on a study of 43 WalkUPs spanning seven counties in metropolitan Washington, D.C., that these higher-density areas with their multiple transportation options are driving today's real estate market growth.
