Better Sidewalks = Higher Real Estate Values – Episode #51
When we walk through the Upper Beaches and we cross over Coxwell Ave heading East on Eastwood Ave, the street curb appeal changes drastically. The City has come in and re-paved the street and sidewalks transforming this side of the Upper Beaches into a place that shows pride of ownership. If you create a pleasurable walking experience, the impact this has on the surrounding area is worth mentioning. Some neighbourhood developers and property owners work with the City to make the sidewalks look better. Sidewalks can look better by simply experimenting with different materials. This way you can encourage people to want to be there, both to visit and live.
