Amazon Headquarters 2 Case Study


On September 7th, 2017, Amazon published a Request For Proposal (RFP) for cities interested in becoming the home of their next headquarters campus.

The RFP spells out specific quantitative real estate requirements and qualitative market requirements such as square footage needed, proximity to transportation and zoning conditions. Gridics' ZoneIQ platform was designed to automate searches with variables exactly like these.

Download our summary case study showing how we used ZoneIQ to identify 150 available parcels in the City of Miami and narrow them down to the 6 most ideal sites for Amazon's HQ2. Also, you can download the comprehensive feasibility report itself here.

“Our underlying property record search allows users to apply unusual search filters such as government owned vacant land within a certain zone and proximity to public transportation, to find ideal properties” says Max Zabala, co-founder of Gridics.  “Once identified, our patent-pending ZoneIQ application was built for the exact site-specific, preliminary development feasibility analysis that Amazon outlined in their RFP.”
