For Manhattan property owners, going through the construction approval process is about to get easier. New York City's Department of Buildings announced on Monday that licensed architects and engineers can now apply online for apartment renovation permits rather than submitting paperwork in person and paying fees to the department's office. The current permit application process makes it troublesome for property owners to renovate: permits are required for everything from redesigning kitchens to repairing facades, and only licensed professionals may apply. The new online system will hopefully streamline the process by allowing professionals to submit construction plans digitally, thereby cutting down the processing time from a few weeks to one business day.
