Walk, Bike or Ride
First, let's start with what is a Walk Score?
A Walk Score measures the “walkability” of any address based on the distance to nearby places and pedestrian friendliness. Along with a Walk Score, a property’s Bike Score measures whether an area is good for biking based on bike lanes and trails, hills, road connectivity, and destinations. A number between 0 and 100 measures the distance and commute time needed to get to places in the property’s surrounding area. Having a good Walk or Bike Score means being able to easily access grocery stores, coffee shops, restaurants, etc.
Lowa46’s Walk Score Lowa has a Walk Score of 63, meaning some errands can be accomplished near the property on foot. One of the main attractions to Lowa is the Bike Score. Sitting at an 94, the area around the building is very “bikeable.” The biggest convenience for Lowa residents is the Cub Foods located on the first floor. Not having to go outside to get groceries makes life much easier for residents, especially during the cold winter months.
