A new study deep-dives into the walkability of the Boston region and comes up with nuggets like this: "On average, all of the product types studied, including office, retail, hotel, rental apartments, and for-sale housing, have higher values per square foot in walkable urban places than in low-density drivable locations. These price premiums of 20 to 134 percent per square foot are strong indicators of pent-up demand for walkable urbanism." [Smart Growth America]
