Penciler is a powerful web-based tool for multifamily housing development that lets you create and compare many different building options for a site, helping you to make better-informed site acquisition decisions. Drawing on local site and zoning data and a building layout algorithm built by UrbanSim, you can automatically generate buildings, visualize their floorplans and massing in context, analyze the costs for each option and understand and visualize the impacts of policy changes.
