By maximizing access to pedestrian-friendly amenities such as footpaths, bike lanes and public transit sources, we reduce car dependency surrounding our properties. Many of our properties achieve a Walk Score of 90 or higher, meaning that our tenants’ and residents’ daily tasks and needs can be accomplished and met without a car.</div><div unselectable="on">We strive to provide a strong sense of community and connection within and around our residential properties. Forest City utilizes Livability Scores as a measure of how well our neighborhoods balance key factors including affordability, access to amenities, environmental quality and community engagement and inclusion. </div><div class="tableContainer" unselectable="on"><div class="crreportColumnGroup" unselectable="on"><div class="crreportColumns crreportColumnHalf" unselectable="on"><div unselectable="on"><h3 unselectable="on">Walkability (Walk Score)*</h3><table class="tableWalkability" unselectable="on"><tbody unselectable="on"><tr unselectable="on"><td unselectable="on">Boston/Cambridge</td><td unselectable="on">95</td></tr><tr unselectable="on"><td unselectable="on">Dallas</td><td unselectable="on">95</td></tr><tr unselectable="on"><td unselectable="on">Denver</td><td unselectable="on">63</td></tr><tr unselectable="on"><td unselectable="on">Los Angeles</td><td unselectable="on">95</td></tr><tr unselectable="on"><td unselectable="on">New York</td><td unselectable="on">99</td></tr><tr unselectable="on"><td unselectable="on">San Francisco</td><td unselectable="on">89</td></tr><tr unselectable="on"><td unselectable="on">Washington, DC</td><td unselectable="on">88</td></tr></tbody></table><div class="footnotes" unselectable="on">*Average score of a representative set of Forest City residential properties located in the markets.
