“MultiGreen champions intentional impact by design.”
Imagine a community — one that enables residents to walk, bike or take public transportation to go to the places they most frequently need to go every day, such as work, schools, grocery stores, shopping malls, parks and other public spaces, entertainment and recreational areas, and fitness and health facilities.
We seek to create such communities.
While the benefits of a healthy, sustainable community may be intuitively obvious to us, it is also supported by a number of studies. According to a Swedish study, lifestyles affects life expectancy more than genetics. In fact, professor emeritus Lars Wilhelmsen — one of the authors of the study — says: “It is often assumed that people with parents who lived to be very old are more likely to live to a grand old age themselves. But that’s just not true —our study shows that hereditary factors don’t play a role and that lifestyle has the biggest impact.”
Home, housing and local environment have a direct impact on our well-being. Living in a high-quality home, experiencing few housing problems, and being surrounded by a pleasant local environment, contribute positively to life satisfaction. The local environment also has an indirect impact on well-being by affecting social exclusion and health.
MultiGreen’s communities are designed to contribute to our tenant’s quality of life and will be assessed for its impact outcomes.
