We See Community

At QuadReal, community is where we thrive. Communities can be physical or virtual – it’s about thinking holistically about the places we live, work, shop and visit. Community is all around when you seek to embrace spaces as opportunities for connections. Throughout this year, the QuadReal team will release a series of themed messages connected to how We See Community all around us.  

Start a new adventure with active transportation  

Active transportation means using your own power to get from one place to another. Whether cycling, walking, running or propelling a wheelchair, introducing ways to be active outdoors has numerous benefits for both you and the environment.

Physical and mental health benefits

Here are just a few benefits of being active outdoors:

    • Increased cardiovascular fitness
    • Increased muscle strength and flexibility
    • Improved joint mobility
    • Decreased stress levels
    • Reduced anxiety and depression

Environmental Benefits

Active transportation contributes to a clean and quiet commute. The environmental benefits are linked to our own health and wellbeing. 

    • Reduced air pollution: High traffic leads to elevated pollutants in the air. On humid days, pollutants remain in the air, leading to both short and long-term health issues.  
    • Reduced noise pollution: High and sustained levels of noise from traffic can cause low-level, sustained stress in urban dwellers. 
    • Urban wildlife thrives where there is less pollution. Let’s share our cities with birds, butterflies, squirrels and other wildlife which help make our urban places livable.  

If you are a QuadReal tenant, resident or guest, contact the property team to learn about on-site facilities that may support your active commuting choice. Some of our office locations offer showers and change rooms, and many others provide secure bicycle parking.

At QuadReal, community is at the heart of everything we do. We strive to create meaningful change in the communities where we work and live to leave a positive social and environmental legacy. We engage with our team members, tenants, residents and visitors to determine the most important needs of the communities where we do business and contribute where it is needed most.
