Today, well-being has taken a central role in urban planning, emphasizing the significance of pedestrian-friendly streets for the overall welfare of a city's residents. Pedestrian-friendly streets are vital elements of urban design that enhance mobility and contribute significantly to people's quality of life. This study examines the impact of pedestrian-friendly streets on the well-being of individuals through a post-evaluation approach. The research focuses on two projects: the 12 Avenue South project, completed in April 2022, and the Madison Station Boulevard project, completed in August 2022. The study uses a well-being questionnaire encompassing physical, psychological, social, and environmental domains by conducting surveys with a stratified random sample of thirty participants on each street. Confirming the hypothesis regarding the preference for green spaces, well-structured transportation, public art, and technology emphasizes the need for more post-evaluations for consideration of future projects. Despite limitations, the study recommends further investigations into variables that affect well-being on pedestrian-friendly streets and highlights the crucial role of post-evaluations in understanding the impact of pedestrian-friendly street projects on the community's well-being.
