Unique new route opens up US east coast

by | Jul 26, 2016 | Property News

With the Tour De France having just finished, cycling is certainly hitting the headlines at the moment. That’s no different across the Atlantic in the US, where the nation’s longest ‘greenway’ is soon to be opened.

Developed since the early 1990’s, the East Coast Greenway will stretch from Calais in Maine, through to Key West, Florida – past cities such as Wilmington, Jacksonville and Orlando – a total of 2,900 miles.

The greenway, created by the East Coast Greenway Alliance, will provide non-motorized users a unique way to travel up and down the East Coast through 25 cities and 16 states. Walkers, cyclists, runners and other active-transportation users will be able to travel on a continuous, firm and paved greenway with a specifically designed traffic-free route.

The greenway will provide points of interest along it course, in addition to convenient access to public transport.

So far around a third of the greenway has been built, with development more rapid now than ever. The East Coast Greenway Alliance plans to add complementary and branching routes to the project in the future.

Dennis Markatos-Soriano, alliance executive director, told CityLab. “It’s about seeing America at the right speed, where you can take in all of the culture around you… and you don’t have a windshield between yourself and the community.”



"It was great to work with the Halcyon team. They have a great product, excellent rates of return, and an engagement strategy that at once informs and reassures investors of the Halcyon value proposition. After sales support, and payment, have been fast and efficient. The Halcyon team is doing a great job and I have recommended to them to both my friends and professional colleagues."

"We have just finalized our purchase with Halcyon and I must say that this would not have been possible without the professionalism and the quality of service of their sales department. Having only one contact from start to finish was a big plus for us. Our contact, Serkan, was able to answer all our questions and uncertainties and was able to show extreme flexibility in the choice of the final product. He never tried to pressure us and was very understanding."

"Nous venons de finaliser notre achat avec Halcyon et je dois dire que cela n'aurait pas été possible sans le professionalisme et la qualité de service de leur service commercial. Le fait d'avoir à faire qu'à un seul et même contact du début à la fin a été un gros plus pour nous. Notre contact, Serkan, a su répondre à toutes nos questions, incertitudes et a su faire preuve d'extrème flexibilté dans le choix du produit final. Il n'a jamais essayé de nous mettre la pression et a été très compréhensif."
