LFA has worked with numerous clients in Manhattan who have acquired a neighboring apartment, and wish to add to their original layout. Each space offers unique challenges. LFA is here to help you get the most out of your space.
The City of New York has a very progressive approach to the built environment, and continues to modify and improve Rules and Codes. If you are a building Owner and are considering a major overhaul within your building, such as moving a stairway, or changing the use, it is helpful to have a feasibility report outlining the issues and filing process.
Plan Reviews / Co-Op Board
Co-op and Condo Buildings frequently require residents to submit architectural plans for Board Review prior to filing with the DOB and must also comply with a set of Building Rules. LFA is available to review plans on behalf of the Board or to help residents address and adhere to specific issues.
Energy Benchmarking (LL 84)
LFA has performed energy benchmarking services for several Manhattan hotels, a mall in Queens and a Mixed Use building on the Upper West Side in order to comply with New York City’s Local Law 84 (LL84). Owners of eligible buildings will be sent a notice or violation by NYC Department of Buildings. Let LFA Architects take the legwork out of complying with this new law.
