Moving to Downtown Lexington KY is Good for Your Health, Wallet & Environment!
According to a recent article, moving to downtown Lexington can benefit your health, your wallet, and the environment. In general, people who live in urban city centers walk or bike more than people who live in the suburbs. Downtown dwellers save gas, money, and can feel good about reducing their carbon footprint. Health benefits from the extra physical activity improve both physical and mental wellness. Social benefits include a higher likelihood of knowing your neighbors, and thus feeling more connected to the community.
The number of downtown Lexington residents continues to rise as more historic homes are renovated and new condominium projects are built. A contributing factor to downtown’s rising population is its convenience to the nearby hospitals of St. Joseph and Central Baptist, as well as proximity to both the University of Kentucky and the Transylvania University college campuses.
If you lived downtown, you would be able to walk or bike to restaurants such as Shakespeare & Co, Portofino, and A La Lucie. A plethora of entertainment options awaits such as Rupp Arena, the Opera House, Kentucky Theater, Lexington Ballet, or numerous bars and nightclubs that offer dancing and live music such as blues, folk, jazz, and country.
Homes, condos and townhouses for sale in downtown Lexington range from $128,500 for a charming little house to a $1,350,000 penthouse condo. Are you thinking of moving to downtown Lexington? Call me!
