A sophisticated intersection of knowledge and style.

Expediting / Code Consulting

Recognizing the flaws and hurdles embedded in New York City agencies, coupled with the delays and finger pointing that occurs through using multiple professional service providers, Crown's model differs from its competition in having trained architects with deep knowledge of building code oversee your applications. Our foresight has repeatedly proven to shorten the time dealing with one, or simultaneous city agencies, and avoid delays.

The expertise, experience and proven track record of our Code Compliance team of Registered Filing Representatives allows us to advance projects safely, legally and expeditiously.

Zoning and Landuse

Zoning is the language of the physical city that aims to promote an orderly pattern of development and to separate incompatible land uses, such as industrial uses and homes, to ensure a pleasant environment. Zoning regulates and establishes limits on the use of land and building size, shape, height and setback. A Zoning District is a residential, commercial or manufacturing area of the city within which zoning regulations govern land use and building bulk. Special purpose zoning districts have distinctive qualities where regulations are tailored to the neighborhood. We provide these services for both the private and public sectors.
