New York City is among the first cities in the country to receive and review digital plans for proposed construction projects. The HUB launched in 2011 to integrate the success of the Get It Done Together pilot into the daily operations of the Department.
The HUB, comprised of three components (the Development HUB, HUB Self-Service, HUB Full-Service) is a state-of-the-art review center equipped with large television screens, smart boards, and webcams, opened in Lower Manhattan to accelerate the approval process for construction projects throughout the City. Design professionals electronically submit applications and construction plans to the Department. Plan examiners and applicants review plans virtually using online meeting software.
