Marcus Hiles Discusses Western Rim’s Plans To Foster Healthy Resident Lifestyles

Marcus Hiles urges his residents to take advantage of the onsite footpaths, noting that tenants who take advantage of even brief exercising on the paths enjoy healthier lives. In 2008, a study by the American Journal of Preventive Medicine gave further proof, suggesting that people living near park areas tended to have a lower risk of obesity; while a 2010 study by the journal Social Science and Medicine determined that people residing near parks and open spaces were more relaxed when compared to others who spent less time in the outdoors. Hiles, a firm supporter of community building, says that beyond their ability to help lower energy costs and encourage active lifestyles, trails also promote a sense of closeness among neighbors, with pathways causing spontaneous meetings and interactions. Environmental, practical and fun, walking trails are an public meeting space no housing development should be without.
