With one of the most complex regulatory regimes in the country, development in New York City requires experienced and knowledgeable professionals to advise clients on how to bring a project to fruition. Clients have come to rely on the Holland & Knight New York Land Use Team's top-to-bottom understanding of the law, as well as its solid, ongoing relationships with elected officials, their aides and senior staff.
Members of our New York Land Use Team appear regularly before the New York City Planning Commission, the New York City Council, the Board of Standards and Appeals, and the Landmarks Preservation Commission. We also represent clients before other New York City agencies, including the Department of Buildings, the Department of Housing Preservation and Development (HPD), and the Economic Development Corporation.
Our clients include major residential and commercial developers, property owners, hotel companies, lenders, investors, condominiums and co-ops, retailers and not-for-profit institutions, including schools, hospitals and religious organizations. We represent clients in a wide range of projects, from multi-building developments with millions of square feet to a single parcel or townhouse.
Holland & Knight lawyers are not only highly experienced in addressing New York land use matters but also understand the business of development. Our team includes attorneys with prior business experience, as well as former senior New York City officials. Our New York Land Use attorneys are active in the industry in other important ways as well, as members of the Real Estate Board of New York (REBNY), housing and zoning committees, and the board of directors for both the Citizens Housing & Planning Council (CHPC) and the New York Housing Conference (NYHC).
