A Local Law to amend the administrative code of the city of New York, in relation to requiring review by the landmarks preservation commission before a demolition permit may be issued for any residential building that is more than seventy-five years old and contains four or fewer dwelling units.

 

Be it enacted by the Council as follows:

                     

                     §1. Section 27-168 of the administrative code of the city of New York is amended by adding a new subdivision c to read as follows:

c. Notwithstanding the provisions of subdivisions a and b of this section, the department shall not issue the permit for any building that is classified in occupancy group J-2  or J-3, is more than seventy-five years old and contains four or fewer dwelling units, until such time as the building has been reviewed by the landmarks preservation commission to determine if such building should be considered for designation as a landmark, landmark site, interior landmark, or scenic landmark. The department shall notify the landmarks preservation commission within five business days of receipt of a permit application that requires review by the commission.

§2. Chapter 3 of title 25 of the administrative code of the city of New York is amended by adding a new section 25-323 to read as follows:

§25-323 Demolition of residential dwellings that are more than seventy-five years old and contain four or fewer dwelling units.  When the commission receives notification from the department of buildings that an application for demolition of a building has been received pursuant to subdivision c of section 27-168 of this code, the commission shall determine whether or not such building should be considered for designation as a landmark, landmark site, interior landmark, or scenic landmarks, and shall notify the department of such determination within thirty business days.  If the commission determines that consideration for designation as a landmark, landmark site, interior landmark, or scenic landmark is appropriate, but after such consideration it is determined that such designation will not be made, the commission shall notify the department of buildings that a designation will not be made within ten business days of making the determination. 

§3. This local law shall take effect immediately after its enactment into law.
