Gridics Recognized as GovTech 100 Company for Second Consecutive Year

Launch of CodeHUB Zoning Platform Propels Gridics to Forefront of Government Technology

MIAMI, Jan. 15, 2020 — Gridics LLC, a real estate tech and data company, today announced its recognition as a GovTech 100 Company for the second consecutive year.  The annual GovTech 100 list is the result of a competitive, in-depth review of companies focused on, making a difference in, and selling to state and local government agencies across the US.

“Year five of the GovTech 100 is one of the strongest we’ve seen, as companies both large and small are tackling more complex problems around state and local government,” said e.Republic Chief Innovation Officer Dustin Haisler.

Gridics’ nomination comes on the heels of a successful year defined by a string of new city adoptions, platform market expansion to new major metros, and the release of the world’s most advanced municipal zoning platform, CodeHUB by Gridics.  Since its launch in February 2019, CodeHUB has become the only data driven zoning publishing platform available to cities, combining the published text with a 3D mapping and citizen self service tools.

“We’re honored to be named a GovTech 100 company for the second year in a row.  This recognition underscores our commitment to making local government more efficient,” explains Gridics CEO, Jason Doyle.  “Municipal zoning has long been too confusing for citizens to interpret.  Our patented technology digitizes a city’s zoning ordinance into parcel-specific data and visualizations.  With that data, we are able to deliver unique citizen service tools and staff software applications which reduce low-value staff time spent answering basic zoning questions and improves overall transparency.  As we look to 2020, we are excited to be leading the way in the world of tech-enabled planning and zoning and look forward to partnering with more cities.”

Gridics Adds City of Miami Beach, Bal Harbour Village to Platform

Florida cities on front lines of sea level rise adopt Gridics platform to help visualize zoning changes.

For Immediate Release:  September 25, 2019

Miami, FL – Gridics LLC, a real estate tech and data company, today announced the City of Miami Beach and Bal Harbour Village are the latest Florida cities to adopt the Gridics 3D zoning map, text and property data platform to bring simplicity, transparency, and efficiency to what can otherwise be a very complicated process for city planners and residents trying to understand zoning code changes and potential.

Gridics helps municipalities in three ways.  First, a unified 3D interactive map and zoning code website allows municipal staff and citizens to visualize the buildable capacity of every parcel as allowed by zoning and publish code text changes in real-time.  Second, online property lookup tools deliver deep, parcel-specific zoning data to help citizens get answers to common zoning questions which significantly reduces phone calls and in-person visits to the planning staff.  Third, municipal staff members can easily run 3D scenario analysis of current zoning allowances, visualize proposed zoning changes and more quickly check permit applications and development plans for compliance.

For low-lying coastal communities like Miami Beach and Bal Harbour grappling with sea level rise and the broader impact of climate change on their built environment, zoning changes are a key piece of the solution puzzle.

“Gridics has developed cutting edge technology that facilitates analysis of a city’s zoning ordinance and allows for the visualization of changes in a built environment.  The technology provides transparency to the public as the community and elected officials consider the benefits and impacts of proposed projects.  Additionally, having zoning text and zoning map integrated allows the city to update its zoning ordinance quickly and efficiently.”  Said Carmen Sanchez, Deputy Planning Director Miami Beach.

The Gridics platform aims to make it easier for citizens, investors and developers to do business and interact with municipalities by bridging the communication gap that the existing municipal zoning text publishing and mapping tools perpetuate.  This ranges from large initiatives such as helping citizens and elected officials to visualize proposed zoning changes to more everyday processes like reducing the time staff spends servicing basic zoning questions both in person and via phone.

“We’re thrilled to add Miami Beach and Bal Harbour to the Gridics municipal network” said Jason Doyle CEO of Gridics.  “Our team of urban planners and software engineers are passionate about helping to build better cities and that starts with progressive and innovative municipal partners focused on leveraging the latest technology and tools to make them easier to work with.”

Other Florida jurisdictions that have adopted Gridics include Miami, Fort Lauderdale and North Miami to name a few.

Gridics Expands Municipal Zoning Platform with the Launch of CodeHUB

Miami, FLGridics LLC, recently recognized as a GovTech100 company, today announced the expansion of its municipal zoning and planning platform with the addition of the first ever unified code text publishing and 3D zoning map product called CodeHUB.

Cities adopting CodeHUB will, for the first time ever, be able to self-publish their zoning code changes in real-time and deliver to citizens an easy to use zoning map with property lookup, and 3D visualization capabilities.  The combination of the two within a single public website application allows for the delivery of a more contextual end user experience at the property specific level while improving public transparency.  With the addition of the CodeHUB product, Gridics now delivers the only true comprehensive zoning management platform for cities.

Gridics launched its municipal zoning platform in 2017 with the unveiling of the first ever 3D planning and zoning software, ZoneIQ.  Targeted to city planners, ZoneIQ allows city staff to generate 3D massing visualizations, as regulated by zoning, of selected parcels with a few clicks.  They quickly saw adoption by cities large and small including Miami, FL and Cupertino, CA and more recently secured a pilot with the planning department of the nation’s largest city, New York.

“As we began to help city planning staff visualize and interpret their ordinance for tasks like testing zoning changes and checking plans for compliance, we observed staff spending a lot of time fielding zoning questions from citizens,” explained Jason Doyle, CEO of Gridics.  “We determined that nearly every city is spending valuable staff resources reacting to questions from citizens either because their current method of publishing their code text is outdated or because the zoning map doesn’t tell them how the written rules apply to their specific parcel.  This makes it harder for citizens and businesses to work with cities and creates a costly domino effect on city resources.  It quickly became clear we were uniquely positioned to solve this problem by extending our site-specific zoning calculation capabilities to citizens by creating the first ever 3D zoning map and code text publication website that cities can update in real-time.  By adding CodeHUB to ZoneIQ, cities now have a truly unified digitized zoning platform that improves staff productivity, helps commissioners make more informed decisions and significantly improves citizen transparency.”

After announcing CodeHUB in late 2018 to select cities, Gridics secured adoption by four Florida cities and is now opening up the service nationwide.  According to a recent survey of 602 cities by leading Planning website Planetizen, of the 85% of cities are publishing their text online, 33% publish a PDF document of the code while 42% use a third party online publishing service and just 58% provide an online property lookup map.

“None of the current solutions in use by cities bridge the gap between text, map and city staff on a single platform,” says Doyle.  “We are aiming to push innovation into zoning on all levels and it starts with simplifying processes by unifying disparate information sources.”

Gridics is Growing >> New Cities, New Products… New York City! New Orleans?

Hi there Gridics family,

This is our first quarterly newsletter.  If you’re receiving it, we somehow determined you might care about what we’re up to.

We’re going to try to make it insightful each time and not bombard you with garbage.  So here it goes…

Gridics is Growing!

We’re laser-focused on making Gridics the 3D zoning code software platform used by every city everywhere.  After launching this time last year, the City of Miami was the first city to adopt our 3D software platform.

Since January 1st, two more Florida cities have adopted — Fort Lauderdale and Delray Beach.

AND >> most recently (announced here first) we have added our first two cities outside of Florida…in the land of APPLE and the BAYOU!

That’s right…the City of Cupertino, CA (APPLE’s Headquarters) and Lafayette, LA (the fourth largest city in Louisiana)!

We’re off to a great start in 2018 and are looking forward to our continued growth.

New Products Are Here!

CodeHUB is coming….Cities have spoken, and we have listened.

The end is near for updating zoning code PDFs multiple times per year and shipping them off to some outside website.  Over the last few months, we have been busy building the future of code text management with feedback from cities.

New York City — Yes We Did!

We recently implemented the entire New York City zoning code (4,000+ pages) into our 3D application.  Subscribers can now run real-time development feasibility scenarios for lots across all five boroughs.

We nailed it — we have confirmed that for irregular shaped lots, our proprietary geometric measurement and calculation process is producing the most accurate buildable capacity data available.


Are you attending the American Planning Association’s national conference in New Orleans from April 21st – 24th?  Come meet Felipe, Austin, and Me!  We will have a booth in the exhibit area.

BUT WAIT there’s more…

We are hosting an Invite-Only (sorry, limited space) cocktail party at a bar overlooking Bourbon Street on Monday night from 9-12am.  We are limited to 50 people, so we will be sending out invitations to a select list.

If you would like to ensure you get an invite, please send a request to Austin (

We love you!

City of Fort Lauderdale, FL Adopts World’s First 3D Zoning Code Software Application

Miami, FLGridics LLC, a Miami-based real estate tech startup, today announced a partnership with the City of Fort Lauderdale, FL to adopt its 3D zoning code management platform.  The Gridics software application is an interactive 3D digital zoning code program that is designed to improve the efficiency and transparency by which cities can manage, change and communicate their zoning code regulations.  Once the software is fully implemented with the city’s code, citizens will have access to more detailed, property specific zoning allowance data and paid subscribers will be able to run customized development feasibility scenarios.

By adopting this technology, the City of Fort Lauderdale’s Department of Sustainable Development will add a smart 3D modeling solution to support its urban design, planning, and development application review process.  Gridics’ patent-pending application combines the measurable requirements of a zoning code with property records, parcel shapes and mapped zones.  This provides users with a 3D interactive digital mapping software to help conduct feasibility studies, scenario plans and site plan reviews by assigning descriptive code characteristics such as allowable heights, setbacks and other dimensional requirements to building forms to visualize development outcome scenarios.  The Gridics application will allow planning staff, policy makers, and the public to visualize the effects zoning regulations and zoning changes have on the existing built environment by imagining build-out scenarios or proposed zoning changes.

“Our partnership with Gridics is an example of the innovative investments we are making to improve services for our neighbors,” said John P. “Jack” Seiler, Mayor of Fort Lauderdale.  “The Gridics platform will provide staff with the data they need to make more informed and more efficient development decisions so together we can make Fort Lauderdale an even better place to live, work, play and raise a family.”

“We’re excited to partner with the City of Fort Lauderdale to help them achieve their 3D mapping objectives around zoning and development analysis.”  says Jason Doyle, CEO of Gridics. “Once in place, not only will our software empower the Sustainable Development team at the City of Fort Lauderdale with a robust tool to enhance their operations but it will also be available for private users to subscribe to use in their development preparations and analysis, resulting in streamlined communication between the two.”

Gridics Raises $1.6 Million to Expand 3D Zoning Technology

MIAMI, Nov. 7, 2017 /PRNewswire/ — Gridics, a Miami-based real estate software company, announced it has raised $1.6 million in additional Seed capital.  The round was led by BH3, a real estate developer with projects in South Florida and New York City, and Dune Road Capital.  The company will use this investment to accelerate development and sales of its 3D zoning and planning platform to cities and real estate developers.

Gridics was founded on a vision to revolutionize the way cities and real estate developers interact with zoning codes.  By bringing 2D text to a visualized 3D interface the company is streamlining an antiquated process. Earlier this year the company launched a map-based zoning code application and proprietary rules engine that allows users to quickly view a 3D, by-right development potential of a specific parcel or parcels.  In addition, the application enables the customization of usage scenarios such as residential, mixed use, office, hotel or commercial.  Gridics is seeing strong early adoption of the application by city and county planning, zoning and economic development departments as well as developers, architects, commercial brokers and land use attorneys in the private sector.

In April Gridics announced a contract with the City of Miami to use its platform to expedite and streamline the analysis and processing of development plan reviews.  It was then that lead investor BH3 became familiar with Gridics.  “The Gridics technology has become invaluable to our business,” says BH3 Principal, Daniel Lebensohn.  “We are able to identify new development opportunities, quickly run custom scenario analyses and view applicable variances and waivers.  That analysis used to take us days to complete and cost thousands of dollars but can now be handled in a few minutes with Gridics.”

“Since our Miami launch, we’ve seen a very strong response from municipalities, large and small, across the US and even internationally,” said CEO of Gridics, Jason Doyle.  “Gaining the investment support of a leading real estate developer like BH3 after first becoming a customer is the best validation we could ask for.  In the coming months, we will be opening all five boroughs of New York City on the platform and expect to add several direct city contracts.”

Dune Road Capital, the other participant in this round, is an experienced technology investment firm and led a previous round of funding in Gridics.  “We are extremely pleased with the execution by the Gridics team and are thrilled with the initial market response to its 3D platform,” said Peter Richards of Dune Road Capital.  “We believe Gridics is a game changer that revolutionizes the way the real estate community interacts with its workflow.  We are excited to partner with BH3 and believe users wanting to become investors further validates the company’s vision.”

Miami CBD Re-Sale Condo Prices Flat Vs. Year Ago, Amidst Declining Sales Volume

The aggregate median price per square foot of condominiums built after 2004 (resale data only) was $387 in March of 2016, exactly as it was in March of 2015 for the area including: Brickell, Downtown, Omni, Edgewater & Midtown (See Map Below). While the re-sale market seems to be holding in price, we are however seeing a decrease in quantity of sales. March of 2015 had a total of 115 condo sales while March of 2016 had 89 sales; A 23% drop in quantity of closings. See the chart at

At a macro level it seems that the condo market in Miami CBD areas peaked in July of 2015 with a median price per square foot of $485. This number surpasses the previous high point of $470 per square foot in December of 2006 (Although adjusted for inflation/CPI the pricing in 2006 was higher than today’s with $470 in 2006 being equal to $554 today). Looking at these macro trends in the booming (and now not-so-booming) areas of Miami show that the alleged “downturn” in the real estate market is not yet quite as severe as many will have you think.

Are High-Design Playrooms the New Frontier of the Amenity Arms Race?

Some of Miami’s biggest new condo towers are being planned with well-heeled, worldly families in mind, with larger units, more amenities for the kids, and ‘service suits’ to stash the live-in nanny. A few incorporate a theme park’s worth of diversions (think of the soccer field, boxing ring, and jam studio at Paramount Miami Worldcenter or the mini water park, indoor/outdoor playrooms, kid’s gymnasium, and rooftop theater of 1010 Brickell, both under construction) while developers of other buildings are focusing on really tricked-out and designed-up playrooms.
