Real Estate Track

Livable Canada

According to the World Health Organization, 80-90% of our health outcomes are the result of where and how we live. Separately, Harvard researchers found that, because we spend 90% of our time indoors, we’re surrounded by unhealthy air and toxic chemicals. From offices to hotels and homes to entire communities, the real estate market is getting a wellness makeover. Now more than ever, buildings are being designed and constructed with our health in mind. 

With an emphasis on clean air, pollutant-free environments, and biophilic design, this movement hopes to improve our quality of life. But a more extreme version of this trend credits wellness homes with increasing longevity.   

Real estate is being radically transformed by the wellness movement: 

  • The global wellness real estate market is expected to reach $197B by 2022. 

  • In North America, the market is worth $52B and is growing by 6.4% annually. 

  • There are an estimated 1.3M potential buyers each year in the US for wellness-oriented homes and communities.
