Stalled Construction

In February 2009, the Department formed the Stalled Sites Unit to identify and track stalled construction. The Stalled Sites Unit monitors identified stalled sites and proactively inspects them to make sure that are being kept safe. Under the NYC Construction Codes, work permits automatically lapse if work is suspended at a site for more than 12 months.

Stalled Sites Program

In October 2009, the Stalled Sites Program was created to encourage owners to safely maintain their sites while work stalled. Owners and developers that opted into the Stalled Sites program created in-depth site safety maintenance plans tailored to their sites’ specific challenges in exchange for being able to renew their active permits for up to four years. The Stalled Sites Program ended in July 2013 as required by the enacting legislation.
