NYC Development Hub

NYC’s new, state-of-the-art center provides faster service and streamlines the approval process by allowing engineers and architects to obtain all approvals in a virtual environment.  

The NYC Department of Building’s new center accelerates the approval process for construction projects throughout the city by allowing architects and engineers to submit digital construction plans and obtain approvals in a virtual environment – without ever needing to meet in person. The Development Hub brings together representatives from multiple City agencies - Fire Department, Department of Environmental Protection, Landmarks Preservation Commission, Department of Transportation, Department of City Planning and Department of Parks & Recreation - who can view plans together, identify problem areas and mark them up digitally and in real time. 

Equipped with large flat-panel screens, smart boards, webcams, and desktop computer tablets, the Development Hub allows Buildings’ plan examiners to review thousands of building designs easier, faster – and without the use of paper, cutting through red tape and making New York City even more business friendly.

Save time, money and get projects into construction faster. Use NYC Development Hub today.
