DOB Clarifies Fee Calculations

By Garvey Thelemaque

The DOB has issued a Service Notice Reminder to clarify filing fees and how they are calculated. Applications with change to use or occupancy (Alteration Type I) and additional square footage are now calculated by construction costs only.

This is a departure from the past, when the square footage of the enlargement was used. Prior to December 31, 2014, the DOB calculated the filing fees for this type of filing with estimated cost of construction + 2.6 per additional square foot.
