Milhaus Development’s downtown Circa apartment project has received a shout-out from the Urban Land Institute for its bicycle-friendly features.
Circa opened in August 2014 at 617 N. College Ave. (see image above), adjacent to the Cultural Trail. It includes 265 units renting for between $950 and $2,500 per month.
The report says that, by supporting bike infrastructure, real estate developers can play a significant role in creating healthier, more sustainable communities.
At Circa, ULI lauds Milhaus for including bicycle storage space on the ground floor of each building; a bike-sharing service allowing residents and visitors to check out bikes, helmets and locks; a bike workroom; and a bike-washing station.
ULI also recognized projects in Albuquerque, New Mexico; Atlanta; Bethesda, Maryland; Des Moines, Iowa; Minneapolis; New York City; Portland, Oregon; and also in London and Singapore.
