Promote community livability, transportation efficiency, and walkability.
Include a residential component in the project that constitutes at least 25% of the project’s total building square footage; and design or locate the project such that at least 50% of the dwelling units are within ½ mile walk distance of at least two (1 point), four (2 points), seven (3 points) or ten (4 points) of the diverse uses defined in Appendix A.

Verify that a pedestrian can reach the uses via routes that do not necessitate crossing any streets that have speed limits of greater than 25 miles per hour, unless those crossings have vehicle traffic controls such as signals and stop signs with crosswalks.
The specified number of uses must be in place by the time certain percentages of occupancy are in place, as indicated in the following table:
