DOB Requires New Documents for Mandatory Inclusionary Housing

DOB Requires New Documents for Mandatory Inclusionary Housing

By Andrew Pisani

Effective August 1, 2018, Owners and developers have new documentation requirements for securing permits and sign-offs on New Building (NB) and Alteration Type 1 (Alt-1) applications at a location designated for Mandatory Inclusionary Housing (MIH).

MIH, enacted in March 2016, calls for the inclusion of permanently affordable housing in medium- and high-density areas that are rezoned to promote new housing production. Such projects now require applicants to provide DOB with the following documents before filing for permits and sign-offs:


  • Permit. Permit notice issued by Department of Housing Preservation and Development (HPD)
  • Sign-Off. Completion notice issued by HPD

To determine whether a project is located in an MIH area, consult Appendix F of the New York City Zoning Resolution.

If you have questions concerning this or other MIH requirements, contact Metropolis Group at 212.233.6344. We’ll help you keep your project on track.
