An international real estate services firm has included two neighborhoods in Indianapolis on its North America’s Top 100 "Cool Streets" list. The Cushman and Wakefield list is part of a new report that looks at the renaissance of retail and cultural districts throughout the U.S. and Canada.
The company ranked streets in Brooklyn, Chicago, Cincinnati, Denver, Los Angeles, Miami, Minneapolis, Phoenix, Richmond, San Diego, San Francisco, St. Louis, Toronto, Vancouver and Washington D.C.
The list tabbed the Massachusetts Avenue Arts District and Fountain Square District/Virginia Avenue in the "Still Cool" and "The Next Big Thing" categories, respectively. Senior Research Analyst in the Indianapolis Office Trevor Kirsh says "both streets ranked high as far as livability and retail factors. Mass Ave scored high for walkability and the food scene while Virginia Avenue ranked well in terms of bicycle friendliness and the music/arts scene."
Cushman and Wakefield says "Cool Streets" locations include characteristics such as a high ratio of restaurants to businesses and many are in transition.
