The Future of Property Development

A night at the Archistar Roadshow

Published: 4th October 2019

Last year we developed the Archistar brand and yesterday we were invited to attend their first roadshow that showcases their new and improved platform.

Archistar has developed world-first artificial intelligence that helps property professionals find profitable development sites, assess for feasibility and generate dozens of architectural design strategies in minutes.

As you can expect, the room at the Rydges in World Square was packed and some people had to stand in the background as all chairs were taken.

A packed room full of engaged listeners

Rob Coorey, Co-Founder of Archistar MCed the evening and Steve Mann from the UDIA kicked the evening off with a brief overview of the exciting vision for Sydney in the next 20 years. He talked to us about the projects that are changing the way we are looking a city designs. From the Urban pinball project where it is all about co-designing the city to Urban AI – a synthetic city platform purely based on data – all really exciting stuff.

But then Ben Coorey, founder of Archistar, stepped up for the Keynote and after a brief history of the company, he jumped right in to the already released features of the platform. Things like using the world-first parametric design generator to see dozens of 3D building designs on your choosen block or assessing your site by easily checking that your designs comply with local regulations are already possible, but he didn’t stop there.

The next upcoming features will go even further to make this process as fast and as efficient as possible. Check out these upcoming features:

  • Advanced Property Analytics – Unit Mix, Sunlight and Cross-Ventilation is already available, but soon there will be overshadowing impact on nearby buildings, view obstruction, building separation and 3D planning envelopes
  • Data Enriched Councils – every council has its own unique regulations and Archistar has started to load council development plans into the platform so you can seamlessly access your sites
  • All your data in one place – Archistar has partnered with Corelogic, Domain, Nearmap, Cordell and Commercial RealEstate to give you all the data you need to assess your site

Needless to say it was a very interesting evening. We are looking forward to the next upcoming releases and working further on developing the Archistar brand.
