Q Lofts the Quintessential Walkerís Paradise

Fri, 19 Jul 2013 by Polycorp

More and more prospective home buyers are trading in long commutes for walkable communities. Located off of flourishing Agricola St. and close to bustling downtown Halifax, Q Lofts offers quintessential urban living.  Walkscore.com rated this condo in Halifax NS location as a “Walker’s Paradise” with a score of 93.

Walkscore.com calculates an area's "walk score" by reviewing its proximity to public transportation, grocery stores and markets, restaurants and bars, schools and parks.  Scores range on a scale from 0 to 100, with 100 being the best.  A high score means the area is more pedestrian friendly with many amenities within walking distance.  On the other hand, a lower rating means residents are more car dependent and don’t have many destinations within walking range.

As a Halifax NS condo owner at Q, you’ll save money on gas and parking.  There will be less wear and tear on your vehicle because you won’t have to use it as often.  Or you might choose to abandon car ownership altogether and use CarShare for access to a vehicle when you need one.   You can feel good about reducing your carbon footprint, which is one of the things Q Lofts is about.  Walkable communities such as Q Lofts promote health and fitness, social interactions and the opportunity to support local businesses like Car Share, Chez Tess creperie, en Vie – a new vegan restaurant and wine bar, the Local Source market, the Halifax Skating Oval or furniture boutique, Statement.

If you want to give Agricola Street a boost, vote for it on the HRM “Paint What Matters” website until July 19thhttp://www.halifax.ca/surveys/paintwhatmatters.html
