We deliver information and collaboration needed to create vibrant, livable places.
OpportunitySpace is an online information platform that drives smart land use and development. We focus on public real estate - governments are largest property owners of land, but lack the tools to utilize this resource and maximize its potential. We bring together government, developers/investors, community groups and citizens to explore and implement the best use for public real estate. The platform has 3 functions:
We clean and consolidate public property and other relevant data from messy sources, creating a complete, up-to-date, user-friendly inventory.
Our analytics help stakeholders understand public land portfolio trends to target investment and action.
This collaboration platform connects government owners to for-profits, community organizations, and individuals to discover productive solutions for public properties.
For many reasons, governments do not know what they own. We standardize disconnected information and enable sharing across agencies and offices. We make that data open for the public.
We analyze the clean inventory data to provide governments with an enterprise view of their property holdings.
We apply principles from corporate real estate management with data visualization techniques to guide administrators’ property decisions. They can understand how real estate supports their policies, enables their operations, and contributes to quality of life for citizens.
Drawing on extensive research of optimal land use and creative adaptations nationwide, our algorithm will match under-utilized properties with repurposing options.
Our “marketplace” is a open to all users to explore the public land footprint, virtually visit sites, and monitor properties of interest. This platform provides a user-friendly catalogue of available properties and a clean channel for developers, brokers, REITs, and investors to engage the government on creative repurposing proposals. We are working to streamline the process of redeveloping public assets.
