Getting urban development right is one of the greatest contemporary challenges, with most of the world’s population now living in cities.

You don’t have to look far to see examples of places that just don’t work. Tall apartment towers that no-one wants to live in, or new suburbs where people don’t know their neighbours.

This happens because property developers rely on inadequate data sources such as the census, or focus groups to make important decisions about community values and identity.

Neighbourlytics solves this problem by translating big data into dynamic, granular and unsolicited insights into what makes places unique. More powerful than user surveys, big data enable us to map and measure social insights anytime, anywhere.

We are piloting the platform with Frasers Property, one of Australia’s leading property groups, across five development sites within Australia. Frasers are an international property group with offices in over 80 cities globally.
