Sample capacity studies
The images below show capacity studies that I produced to evaluate the buildability of sites in and around Detroit. Software used includes QGIS, Rhino3D, and Python.
R3 Neighborhood in Detroit: I used GIS data to identify Detroit Land Bank-owned parcels, dissolve them into contiguous development sites, and then ran Python code in Rhino3D to automate estimating the number of units buildable by right on the site. I then cross-checked the code's output with additional zoning requirements and generated a massing visualization of potential buildout.
Multifamily building: This site's evaluation included a study of the local zoning code's dimensional and parking requirements, as well as compliance with the municipality's adopted comprehensive plan.
