Our mission

Local Logic is digitizing the built world to make it universally understandable and actionable for consumers, investors, developers, and governments with the ambition of helping build cities that are more sustainable and equitable for the people that live in them.

To achieve that dream, we’ve built a digital twin of cities, quantifying the built world using data and AI to interpret the $217T real estate market throughout the US and Canada.

We started our journey at McGill University’s urban planning department, where we came to see that cities were being developed in all kinds of unsustainable ways.

Why were sprawling suburbs still being built, when doing so would increase pollution and inequality? Why were new business parks being built far from mass transit, when doing so would make traffic congestion skyrocket?

Why was social housing being built in places that would exacerbate social problems rather than improve them?

It became clear to us why : cities are incredibly difficult to understand. But we realized that with recent advances in data science, all the complexity of cities could be made simple enough for anyone to understand.

And that understanding would be essential to making the sustainable, equitable, and prosperous cities that we so desperately need.

Today, Local Logic delivers sophisticated location insights through webtools, APIs, one-click reports and a data analytics platform.

Our insights are powered by billions of data points we’ve generated that describe all aspects of cities from the distance to the nearest bus stop, the quietness on a street, to the most recent trends in the housing market and more.
