Brickell Scores With Walk Score

January 14th, 2013 Written By

Since its debut a few years ago I have loved the idea of Walk Score .  It’s a website and app that scores locations based upon the residents’ ability to walk to things that they need.  Grocery stores, restaurants, dry cleaners, coffee shops, etc.  It took off and became very useful in big cities like San Francisco and New York.  Of course, when you think about it, most any part of a big city should have a high walk score, so the difference between neighborhoods is probably negligible.

In a car obsessed city like Miami, I never thought a Walk Score would become important. In Miami we drive because we have to (heat and lack of good public transport) and because we want to (heat and a love of cars).  The past few years however have turned my thinking around and a proof point was an email from some potential clients from Harvard Square in Cambridge.  They wanted a condo for a second home in Miami.  They had narrowed it down to Coconut Grove and Brickell.  Why?  Because of their high walk scores.

  • Miami has an overall Walk Score of 73.
  • Brickell has a Walk Score of 83.
  • Downtown Miami has a Walk Score of 86.

Do you know your Walk Score?  We will be featuring the Walk Scores of every condo and building that we write about from now on.  The more of us who are focused on it, the more accurate it will become and in a neighborhood like Brickell our ability to walk everywhere is getting better and better every day.
