Good sites for redevelopment are hard to find. Locating and identifying the strongest sites is both competitive and challenging. Developers seeking historic and existing buildings for reuse face further obstacles: Information about these properties is collected by multiple parties and reported in a variety of locations and formats. Historic significance is often unknown or stored in inaccessible forms, and, by the time a property comes to market, the opportunity for greatest value is often lost. Visible City has teamed up with site reuse strategists at PVN to create a proprietary mapping and site identification tool. This tool aggregates and analyzes data to allow clients to find better sites more efficiently and at lesser cost than a conventional site identification process: PVNSiteWorks Powered by Visible City.
PVN and Visible City present a powerful combination of geospatial analysis combined with a deep understanding of the regulatory and economic framework for site reuse and historic preservation. Client-specific searches are created to meet customized criteria for redevelopment success. Visible City creates, compiles, and deploys client-specific criteria for single parcels, or a collection of adjacent parcels. This custom criteria meets key project characteristics while PVN interprets initial redevelopment potential.
Sample data sets include:
- Historic significance and potential designation
- Parcel size
- Square footage and vintage
- Proximity to jobs
- Transit or other key factors
- Location in a qualified Census tract or other geographies.
With PVNSiteWorks, clients obtain a highly-curated set of properties that meet desirable and specific characteristics. This data is valuable for redevelopment, ongoing support in the determination of feasibility for reuse, and a competitive advantage in any market. Let’s connect.
