Read my Knight News Challenge entry (and even vote!)
My idea is CityPipeline.com, a Web hub for news and information on local real estate development. CityPipeline is basically a local real estate map that you can filter, search and add information to.
For each project, the map can or would eventually include:
- stage in the development "pipline" (in planning, approved, under construction)
- new leases
- building sales
- city council votes
- planning commission votes
- links to news articles
- links to blog entries
- related documents
I have a rough prototype running at sfpipeline.com (IE or Firefox, no Safari yet), which looks like this:
It's sort of a Bloomberg terminal for local real estate, but on the Web and free.

If you have a few minutes, vote on the project too (click next to the stars; you have to create an account but it only takes a minute).
