How “Walkable” Is Your Favourite KLCC Condominium?
One of the major selling points for KLCC condominiums is how “walkable” they are; indeed, for a large number of condos in this area there are an abundant of amenities which could be reached by foot.
Borrowing a piece of technology from our sister site’s team at GoodPlace.my, we have completed the calculation of “Walkability Scores” of a majority of condominiums in the KLCC and surrounding areas. The Walkability Scores are calculated based on the following factors:-
- Walking distance to basic amenities such as food, schools, police stations and hospitals.
- Walking distance to secondary amenities such as shopping centres, laundrettes and shops.
- Availability of nearby transportation such as taxi stands and LRT stations.
The “default” (and maximum) score is 100, and we apply a dampening factor which increases with walking distance to amenities and transportation points. More information about the computation of Walkability Scores can be found at our sister site GoodPlace.my.
We have also mapped out the scores in the form of a high resolution map which you can download below.
