Using Code Notes

DOB Code Notes cover an array of construction projects for both residential and commercial properties. Each Code Note explains the necessary filings, applicable Codes and zoning, relevant bulletins, directives and memos for some of the most common construction projects in New York City. Code Notes cross-references requirements under the Code with other provisions, centralizing complex information typically spread out across the City's Building Code, Zoning Resolution, NYC Fire Code, Multiple Dwelling Law, Energy Code and other provisions into a more accessible format. This includes required approvals from other City Agencies, such as the Department of Transportation and the Landmarks Preservation Commission.
