Approval from NYC Governing Agencies varies with each building, property and scope of work. Many times, when approval from multiple agencies is required, such agency (i.e. Landmarks, and/or OER) shall approve the proposed alteration PRIOR to DOB approval.

A simple way to verify which agency will require a review and approval of the proposed filing drawings is to refer to the property profile on DOB – Building Information System (BIS). Many properties within the 5 Boroughs of NYC typically require approval from more than one agency as shown in the following examples:

EXAMPLE 1:
