Behind the numbers

Adopting property technology is essential for creating sustainable, efficient, and advanced living spaces and work areas. And with the implementation of proptech, smart buildings will boom over the coming years.

In fact, the number of smart buildings is expected to rise from 45 million in 2022 to more than 155 million in 2026, according to Juniper Research. In other words, the demand for property technologies will grow to more than 150% in just four years.

To help determine which parts of the country are leading the proptech revolution, we identified the top 100 zip codes where ButterflyMX is installed.

The zip code coming in at number one on the island of Manhattan is 10003, which covers parts of Greenwich Village and East Village.

Greenwich Village has become known for its deep cultural history of art, activism, and a vibrant LGBTQ+ community. Meanwhile, East Village offers the opportunity to spot celebrity residents like Cher and Julia Roberts and the chance to see one of 117 ButterflyMX installations. Next time you’re visiting the birthplace of American punk rock, keep an eye out for the bright purple screen of a ButterflyMX intercom welcoming you to the Big Apple!


2. 60607 – University Village/West Loop, Chicago, IL

As the zip code with the second-highest ButterflyMX installs — just over 120 — zip code 60607 was once a gritty, industrial district of Chicago. It now encompasses ultra-modern and tech-enabled residences and offices. This shift is highlighted by the installation of so many ButterflyMX devices.

University Village now represents the Windy City’s shift to smart technology and its status as a leader in property technology adoption.


3. 30308 – Sona/Midtown, Atlanta, GA

The historic city of Atlanta appears twice on our list, racking up 68 ButterflyMX intercoms in total, with the zip code of 30308 having the most installs at 35. 30308 blankets the entirety of Sono and slices of Midtown.

When stepping into these communities, you’re greeted with captivating architecture and deep history mingling amongst modern high-rises — all of which are equipped with the latest smart building technologies, including ButterflyMX.


4. 98109 – Westlake/South Lake Union, Seattle, WA

Seattle, WA

Home to tech giants like Amazon and Microsoft and known for its rainy climate, Seattle makes our list in the form of zip code 98109, which is home to 58 ButterflyMX installations. This zip code encapsulates Westlake, East Queen Anne, and South Lake Union, all of which are positioned alongside Lake Union.

Most notably, 98109 extends its reach to Uptown, where you’ll find panoramic views of the city and bay from the iconic Space Needle!

In the same way, the observation tower once represented technological optimism at the 1962 World’s Fair, every ButterflyMX device in 98109 represents a step towards the future of smart buildings.


5. 33304 – Poinsettia Heights, Fort Lauderdale, FL

Nestled on the coast, Fort Lauderdale appears two times on our list with nearly 70 ButterflyMX video intercoms. The neighborhood of Poinsettia Heights, a contemporary coastal community, makes up more than half the total number of installs at 37.

You may not expect to find many ButterflyMX devices in zip code 33304, known for its wide variety of outdoor activities, but ButterflyMX isn’t just suited to high rises and large commercial spaces! On the contrary, our smart video intercoms and keypads make property access just as simple in gated communities as they do in skyscrapers.


6. 90046 – West Hollywood/Hollywood Hills, Los Angeles, CA

Hollywood Hills, CA

Just west of Downtown Los Angeles is 90046, also known as West Hollywood and the Hollywood Hills, which showcases 33 ButterflyMX intercoms.

Most notably, the zip code is located near the heart of the movie industry, making Hollywood Hills a technological oasis of hillside estates for actors and actresses. These residents need an extra layer of security — and many property owners and managers in Hollywood have turned to ButterflyMX, which offers robust security through live video without sacrificing convenience.


7. 80202 – Union Station, Denver, CO

Located in the heart of Denver, 80202 has 85 ButterflyMX installations. The zip code blankets parts of Downtown Denver and the Business and Financial District. While parts of this zip code are primarily a business district, there’s still a lot of fun to be had in the form of Larimer Square, a vivacious and historic block showcasing 19th-century architecture embracing 21st-century tech.

And because ButterflyMX devices can be easily retrofitted, they blend in seamlessly with the old and new architecture of Denver, proving that even historic properties never have to sacrifice security or convenience to preserve their history.


8. 58104 – Fargo, ND

Fargo, ND

Fargo is not only the largest city in North Dakota, but it also tallies more than 30 ButterflyMX intercoms. While its population is smaller compared to other cities on this list, its approximately 125,000 residents know how to enjoy the outdoor lifestyle that’s underpinned by temperatures ranging from -30° F to 100° F.

Fargo demonstrates that cities don’t require a booming population to join the smart building revolution.


9. 77007 – Washington Avenue Coalition/Memorial Park, Houston, TX

As the fourth most populated city in the U.S., it’s no wonder Houston made it onto our list with over 40 installations. 77007 is located just west of downtown, encompassing one of the U.S.’s largest urban recreational areas, Memorial Park.

And Houston isn’t just one of the most populated cities in the U.S. — it’s one of the most popular cities for young professionals and post-grads. These unique renters expect a high-tech living experience, and Houston property managers and owners have responded to this fact by investing in robust proptech from ButterflyMX.


10. 07030 – Hoboken, NJ

Hoboken, NJ

Finally, Hoboken, New Jersey, the city Frank Sinatra built, sits on the Hudson River directly across from New York City. 07030 features the most ButterflyMX installations in a single zip code with more than 150 video intercoms. The city of Hoboken features a distinctive mix of historic charm and modern development.

It’s home to a dynamic blend of mixed residences, businesses, and mixed-use buildings that have taken a step toward the future by integrating proptech throughout the city’s ever-evolving real estate.
