Maximum building bulk, unit and parking counts

Zoner is a real estate optimization tool designed with the user in mind who is seeking a comparative tool for viewing different site specific options for a potential real estate investment. With Zoner users can instantly see the future, viewing the total allowable floor area, allowable number of units, floor area ratios (FAR), number of parking spaces, street trees, and more.

Land is expensive and sourcing the right investment for a site specific project is a real challenge given the regulatory constraints. Zoner assists the labor intensive process of comparing development solutions with accurate public data streamlined into an attractive visual online real estate comparison tool.
