The NYC Development Hub is a state-of-the-art plan review center to accelerate the approval process for construction projects throughout New York City.
The plan review center is made up of the Department’s senior plan examiners, who collaborate with representatives from six other City agencies involved in the construction project approval process.
All electronic filings at the Department of Buildings are now coordinated through the Development Hub in Lower Manhattan, including the new Hub Self-Service – under which New York State-licensed architects and engineers can professionally certify plans for small construction projects (Alteration 2 and Alteration 3) without visiting a Department office.
Through the Department’s website, applicants can create online accounts complete the necessary electronic forms and upload the proper documents in order to receive approvals and obtain construction permits. Alteration 2 and 3 applications are typically submitted when there is no change in use, occupancy or egress.
Other electronic filings at the Department (formerly known as eFiling) also are being coordinated through the Development Hub, including Electrical Applications and Limited Alteration Applications.
