Deepblocks Maps: Identify what and how much you can build in Miami

Deepblocks Maps is here! We’re very excited to announce our new, FREE web-based mobile and desktop application that instantly shows you what you can build in a growing number of cities. You can use Deepblocks Maps while on a call, on the go, or in the office. Maps gives you the basics: Lot Size, Existing Building Area, Zoning Type, plus, most importantly: Uses Allowed, Total Potential Gross Buildable and whether the parcel selected is within an Opportunity Zone.

Deepblocks Maps    is supported on mobile, tablets and desktop.

Let’s unpack how this information can be immediately beneficial when assessing different parcels across Miami.

I’ve been testing Maps for some time, and immediately began to uncover some significant possibilities on how to maximize the ease and utility of the application for professional use. For now, I’ll focus on one: Total Gross Buildable deltas.  

Maps offers users the ability to quickly identify underbuilt sites by simply selecting a parcel and then comparing the Existing Building Area and Total Gross Buildable. This is commonly different, immediately identifying parcels of potential value. The larger the discrepancy between the existing and the total buildable, the more underutilized the existing asset is¹.

Below, I’ve found three parcels that have high area deltas in different zoning types, and one within an Opportunity Zone. After identifying the parcel, I simply logged into our Deepblocks Beta software to get a preliminary analysis and estimate of what the financial potential of the parcels is.

Here are a few scenarios I built using Deepblocks Maps with Deepblocks Beta software:
