GoodPlace Walkability Scores map (KLCC)

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.

How To Download

The map comes in both high resolution (9Mb) and moderately-high resolution (3.6Mb), and are in PDF format. You will be able to download both versions upon liking our Facebook page (which we have just launched rather recently – so go check it out as well).

  1. I think you get Desa Kudalari and Desa Angkasa mixed up. Dua Residency location appear to be off too. Unless the map is not about the condos location, just to indicates their respective “GWS”. But then again most other condos seem to be at their correct position.

  2. Thanks for calculating/compiling this! It’s about time we started to give more importance to pedestrians and the value of inner-city living to sustainability.Quick qualm: why are the sizes of the names not corresponding to the actual score? Seems very counter-intuitive and inaccurate.

    • Puppypup – you’re right. That’s a good idea actually – I’ll ask my designer if he could make tweaks so that the sizes of the names are somewhat representative of the score. Thanks!

    Is there any reason why Brunsfield Embassy View is not showing on your Free KLCC Walkability Map? Thank you.

    • Masood – Brunsfield Embassy View will be reviewed at our sister site – a dedicated site for Embassy Row properties. Watch this space for updates.

  4. The Mews by E&O is off Jalan Yap Kwan Seng, and back to back with Hampshire Residences. Informative and thanks.

  5. Hiya Khai,
    Excellent job. Is there any reason why Mayang Court Condominium that’s right next to Avenue K doesn’t appear on it’s namesake list : Zone B: Mayang?

    • Thanks, Za. The reason why Mayang Court is not there is because we don’t have a review for it. If you’d like to give it a shot reviewing it let me know 🙂

  6. The map is a wonderful idea. May I suggest an improvement- make the names of the condominiums in the map clickable (eg in an embeddable Google Map version) , and provide links to reviews by KLCCcondominiums.com.my or their websites, if available eg http://www.kiranaresidence.com and http://www.onekl.com.my/.

    • Thank you, Ray. The map is actually clickable (use the Blue Box icon at the right hand corner of each info box). It’s not immediately obvious, I know.

      Meanwhile, we are building a sister site at http://klcc.co where the entire map is the browse/search tool. We are currently populating the site, but the basic structure is up. The entire database should be up by the end of next week the latest.

  20. Sorry.. Don’t do Facebook. Is there any way the walkability map can be accessed without having to ‘ like’ pages?

  21. Is KL really walkable? been here a month and I have already been mugged! Snatch-thieves abound. Horror stories even in KLCC. You have to drive or use cabs everywhere. The city looks developed but safety is a major concern.
