With an iPhone app already proffering the city that never was, how about the one that is, or is about to be? That is the charming task of Designnear. (That’s design-near, not design-ear.) From the fine folks at Hopnear, which also has a cool Artnear app, too, Designnear maps out nearby contemporary buildings of interest, replete with lots of cool photos and renderings and vital info. And forget where that cool, new project you just read about in The Architect’s Newspaper is? There’s a search, function, too, that’ll map it out and let you find it. Better yet, anyone can log-on and submit their own projects—that’s you, up-and-coming architect—hopefull leading to a comprehensive iPhone catalog of all the city’s nifty buildings.

UPDATE: A Hopnear rep emailed us to say that Designnear now has landmarks listed for most U.S. cities, and they’re poised for a roll out in Asia and Europe.
