DALLAS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Prominent real estate tycoon, Marcus Hiles upholds eco-friendly construction practices that maintain the serenity of the environment, bettering it by establishing walkways and parks. An abundance of trees and vegetation surrounding these areas offer tremendous benefits, as they remove air pollutants while storing and sequestering carbon dioxide. The USDA Forest Service trust ‘trees properly placed around buildings can reduce air conditioning needs by 30 percent.’” Hiles believes home seekers should be on the lookout for a clear presence of recreational walkways throughout the site of the unit.
Western Rim’s properties are built within the state’s expansive green spaces, located within easy reach of urban centers. Marcus Hiles encourages renters to pick locations with footpaths, as tenants who take advantage of even mild exercising on the paths enjoy healthier lives. A 2008 study by the American Journal of Preventive Medicine suggests people who live near park areas tend to have a lower risk of obesity; while a 2010 study by the journal Social Science and Medicine concluded people who reside near larger amounts of green space were more relaxed than others who spent less time outdoors. Trails also promote a sense of closeness among neighbors, with pathways encouraging spontaneous meetings and interactions.
Founder of Western Rim Property Services, Marcus Hiles, is a respected property developer and philanthropist who has spent more than three decades creating communities that embody his vision of luxury living. Having successfully planted a total of 30,000 trees in the last 10 years, Hiles’ environmentally minded goal of continuing to plant 2,500 trees annually is part of Western Rim's long-term objectives. Marcus Hiles remains devoted to giving back to the state of Texas; he has personally donated over 59 acres of parkland in efforts to preserve wildlife habitats and offer residents accessible green spaces.
