As part of the agency response to the COVID-19 situation, LPC has temporarily closed its office and is temporarily accepting electronic filing of all permit applications. Read more about it here.
The Landmarks Preservation Commission (LPC) helps preserve the City's landmark properties by regulating changes made to these buildings and sites. We do not prevent owners from making changes, but rather work with them to ensure that planned changes are appropriate to the character and style of the building.
Owners or tenants must apply for a permit from LPC before doing certain kinds of work affecting the exterior and/or interior of landmark properties. In addition to filing the application form, applicants must provide certain documents and materials that explain the planned alterations. Learn more about how to get a permit.
**PLEASE NOTE: Even if your exterior project does not require a Department of Buildings permit, a LPC permit is still required.
