"Building for Wellness: The Business Case"

This report published by the Urban Land Institute discusses wellness as a development objective in housing and commercial developments. Written to make the business case for wellness, the report gives clear examples of how to incorporate wellness features in a budget conscious but effective way.

Wellness features can include support for bicycling, structured fitness activity through built amenities, support for social interaction such as community gardens or greenhouses, and clean indoor air due to features such as nonsmoking policies, ductless heating/cooling and non-VOC materials. 

The report features case studies from 13 developers who included wellness features in their projects and focuses on three development strategies: renovation/redevelopment, new construction and master-planned communities.
