Zonability is a powerful new web application that provides economic development corporations an efficient way to identify and promote their community’s real estate assets.
Our core uniqueness stems from a proprietary process in which we program maps and complicated zoning rules. In other words, we breakdown the zoning ordinance so EDOs and their clients can benefit from fast-loading maps and reports that give meaning!
Foster economic development by creatively using technology to substantially improve the way communities understand and market their real estate assets.
The company got its start in 2003 as a commercial real estate valuation firm in the San Francisco Bay Area. We created user-friendly, graphically driven reports in a world of heavy text and dull photos. The foundation for Zonability’s product development started in 2009 as an outcropping from research into ways to automate zoning data collection for valuation purposes.
The product was named Zonability for giving people the “ability” to get fast access to important zoning rules. In 2010, a Zonability prototype won top honors in statewide app contest. In 2011, Leigh Budlong (Founder and President) was one of 17 people honored by the White House as a “Technology Champion of Change” for her innovative use of public data. Andrew Paul Joseph (Co-founder) is a UT Austin graduate where he earned dual Bachelor of Arts degrees in Government and Urban Studies.
