Marcus Hiles On Renters’ Preferences For Healthy Living

Marcus Hiles encourages prospective renters to choose aprtments with on-site footpaths, explaining that peopel who take advantage of even mild exercising on the paths will enjoy better lives. A 2008 study by the American Journal of Preventive Medicine provides evidence, suggesting that people who live near natural areas tend to have a lower risk of obesity; and a 2010 study by Social Science and Medicine concluded that people who reside near larger amounts of open space were more relaxed than others who spent less time outdoors. Hiles is a strong supporter of community building, and says that beyond their ability to reduce energy costs and foster active lifestyles, trails also promote a sense of closeness among residents, with pathways encouraging spontaneous meetings and interactions. Environmental, practical and sustainable, a series of walking trails are an amenity no rental development should be without.
