We. Are. Placeoholics...
State of Place is the manifestation of our passion - we quantify what people love about cities and why it makes economic sense to make them better. We help cities make the data-driven case for great places - to quell the naysayers - residents, developers, traffic engineers, elected officials - so they can get their visions approved, attract more people and firms, and enhance their economic competitiveness.
Our vision is to fundamentally disrupt this pervasive mentality:
"Do as I say because I "know" I'm right"
"Do as he says because of who he is"
"Do as they did because look how cool what they did is"
And replace this ideologically-based expert-driven approach accessible only to a few, with an evidence-based data-driven one accessible to the many. State of Place isn’t just moneyballing city-making, we are leveling the playing field.
