2015 Covered Buildings List
Local Law 84: Benchmarking (LL84) requires large buildings to comply with benchmarking regulations. These buildings include private sector buildings that are larger than 50,000 square feet, and two or more private sector buildings on a single lot that are larger than 100,000 square feet.
The 2015 covered building list identifies properties required to submit calendar year 2014 energy and water data consumption by May 1, 2015. Covered buildings that have an Automatic Meter Reader (AMR) installed for at least the entire year of 2014 are required to benchmark water in addition to energy usage. These properties eligible for automatic uploading of water consumption will see a "Yes" next to your BBL under the column "Automatic Water Benchmarking Eligible".
NOTE: Gross square footage (GSF) listed by the New York City Department of Finance (DOF) are estimates solely for identifying buildings under LL84; when inputting information, building owners must calculate true gross square area, as defined by the Benchmarking Rule.

Disputing the Covered Buildings List
A property is listed only if a single building on a single lot is over 50,000 sq ft, or multiple buildings on a single lot combined are over 100,000 sq ft. If you believe your building should or should not be on the list, please email the New York City Department of Finance (DOF) at email@example.com to dispute building square footage or the number of buildings on a tax lot for both LL84 and LL87 lists.
Email firstname.lastname@example.org and include in your email the following:
- The building(s) borough, block and lot numbers
- Contact name
- Contact email address or telephone number
- Reason for dispute with your correct square footage
NOTE: All other inquiries about energy compliance should be directed to the Department of Buildings at email@example.com. All other inquires about water compliance should be directed to the Department of Environmental Protection at firstname.lastname@example.org.
