Learn about the new process for getting your MIH-flagged project approved.
The NYC Department of Buildings has recently stated that applicants for new and Alt-1 building permits whose buildings were incorrectly flagged in a Mandatory Inclusionary Housing zone are not required to submit a Permit Notice to the Department of Housing Preservation and Development (HPD).
New Building and Alt-1 projects in MIH zones that contain more than 10 apartments are required to provide a certain percentage of affordable housing. Thus, they must submit a Permit Notice (when prior to permit) and Completion Notice (when prior to sign-off) to the HPD as part of their Required Documents in DOB: NOW.
However, BIS sometimes flags buildings outside these zones. This can cause applicants to file unnecessary paperwork or wait for a waiver request to go through.
Now, in place of a waiver request, the DOB instead asks that applicants upload a New York City Zoning and Land Use (ZoLa) map printout proving that the building lies outside an MIH zone to satisfy the requirement in DOB: NOW, simplifying the process.
