This paper introduces a real-time neighbour scoring system, using data collected from various web-based APIs, to facilitate “15-minute city” designs. The system extends on the current state of the art in three ways; first, it incorporates a multi-source urban API, which automates the extraction of location-based information from online sources; second, it provides a quantitative method to calculate and index “15-minute city” performance; and third, it provides a web-based application, which allows real-time feedback of neighbourhood design performance complementing the design refinements at a building and tenancy level. In addition to discussing its theoretical basis, and technical implementation, this paper provides a case study to demonstrate how the neighbourhood scoring system is incorporated into the design of a hypothetical mixed-use urban development.
