DOB Releases Interactive Building Profiles Map
DOB recently published a new, interactive map that provides greater insight into how the department interacts with the nearly 1.1 million buildings and 45,000 active construction sites it regulates. The map provides a 12-month snapshot of building permits, complaints, inspections, violations, and accident reports for every property in the city.
The map can be found at https://www1.nyc.gov/assets/buildings/html/dob-building-profiles.html. This map is the latest in a series of interactive dashboards, reports, and data tools released by the department to give the public access to information about the city’s built environment.
The map shows the location of each of the 128,056 buildings in New York City that have had interactions with the department in the past 12 months, with information on construction permits issued, complaints generated, inspections conducted, violations issued, and construction-related accidents to which DOB responded. This data is aggregated by building over a rolling 12-month period, providing real-time insight into recent trends in construction and building code enforcement. Using this interactive 12-month map, you can find the location of:
- 55,473 properties where DOB issued construction permits;
- 3,254 construction sites that have been issued a DOB stop-work order;
- 12,766 buildings where DOB conducted inspections of reported illegal conversions;
- 703 reported construction accidents; and
- 679 buildings where DOB received complaints of construction-related tenant harassment.
Every building on the map has a link to extensive information about each of these interactions on DOB’s searchable online database. The Buildings Profile map will be updated weekly, providing up-to-date information to the public. This information gives the user a bird’s-eye view to better understand recent movement in the construction industry and DOB compliance activities throughout the five boroughs.
