Kleber, in collaboration with Universal Everything, have launched a new site for the Manhattan Loft Corporation using Google Maps as the foundation.

Layering a clean design on top of the data available from Google means visitors have access to information on nearby restaurants, shops and places of interest… and photos of the area.

It’s an example of how agencies are beginning to blend together the different layers of the static web and the social web.

The social web is at the root of what been coined the “Live Web“.

The Live Web isn’t just built, it grows, adapts and changes. It’s an environment where we text and post and author and update and tweet and syndicate and subscribe and notify and feed.
