M.Arch Architects, IBM Smarter Cities and BetaNYC are teaming up for the upcoming BigApps 2014 competition! This collaborative group of architects, urban planners, and programmers are developing an API plugin for M.Arch Arch's application software, Zoner, that will increase the feasibility tool's already growing data set.
Zoner is Digital Zoning Ordinance Optimization software that delivers real estate feasibility fast with clarity. Zoner removes uncertainty of complex regulation, and improves the decision making process of real estate planning, and investment. Continual improvements to Zoner slate this application to be one of the top architectural feasibility tools of its kind. Test Zoner at the link below:
