Department of Buildings Tools

The Department of Buildings (DOB) has made available two maps on Local Law 97 and Local Law 33. The Local Law 97 map allows the public to find the location of each of the approximately 40,000 buildings around the five boroughs that must comply with the law. The Local Law 33 map shows the energy efficiency letter grade sign assigned to each of these buildings, which is based on energy and water benchmarking data submitted to the DOB on an annual basis.

DOB's Benchmarking tool is available to help you determine your energy usage and comply with Local Law 97.
