Using data to find better apartments in Toronto

Posted by Local Logic on Mar 23, 2017 10:31:54 AM

Frustrated with exaggerated listings and neighbourhood stereotypes, we built a tool that cuts through the marketing BS to find better listings. Life is guaranteed to be miserable sometimes. Whether it’s exam season, tax season, or I-gotta-start-actually-going-to-the-gym-because-damn-it’s-almost-beach season, there are a few select times of the year that you should avoid at all costs.

Austin’s biggest grocery deserts (and watering holes)

Posted by Local Logic on Mar 3, 2017 10:16:57 AM

We crunched the numbers to find the best neighborhoods for grocery shopping, eating out, and partying

We’ve been crunching a lot of numbers on Austin recently. Last week we calculated the best Austin neighborhoods to live in if you don’t have a car. The winners were Old Enfield (for cyclists) and Downtown (for transit riders and pedestrians). We also discovered that UT was someplace you never want to drive — between traffic and parking and myriad other reasons, it’s a commuter’s worst nightmare.

The best Austin neighborhoods (if you don’t have a car)

Austin is a wonderfully weird city. But how accommodating is it to weirdos (like us) who don’t have cars?

Now you can find out!

At Local Logic, we’re building the world’s largest data set on urban experiences. We score every street corner in a city based on factors such transit quality, quietness, and variety of nearby restaurants (check out any address in Canada). Normally, we use this data to help people find a great neighbourhood for a new house, or the perfect place to stay during a vacation. But, given the astronomical popularity of Pokémon GO, we thought we would use our data for something a bit different this time: helping you locate your favorite Pokémon!

The three criteria of travel accommodation 

You’re booking your trip in Montreal for Labor Day weekend. There’s no shortage of apartments for under $100 a night on Airbnb. Price: check.

And it seems like every accommodation is rated at least 4 stars with positive reviews. Quality: check.

This place is next to a metro station. But will we use the metro? Are there coffee shops nearby? What about a park to walk the dog? Location: hmm…

The value of public transit in vacation rentals.

“Location is the most important criteria for travellers when booking.”- Brian Chesky, CEO & Co-founder, Airbnb

Location can make or break a vacation. We don’t need to explain why it’s the most important factor when choosing accommodation. Today’s travellers want to experience the city through the eyes of a local. But what makes a good location?

Where Montreal’s vacation rentals are located and what this says about today’s travel experience

A city is a work of art, but it’s not a museum. It is not there to be looked at from behind a velvet rope. There are no guards shushing visitors. Flash photography is permitted and touching the art is encouraged.

We visit cities not to observe them, but to partake in them.
