Thousands of NYC developers facing federal penalties | Crain’s New York Business.


Interesting article in Crain’s New York Business regarding the settlement of a case between the federal government and the developer illustrating the need to be aware of federal handicap accessibility guidelines in addition to NYC Code. The Fair Housing Act requires new multi-family housing complexes with at least four units to be built with certain features that make them more accessible. The law requires properties to be built with facilities or services that will aid disabled people in their use of the property. Failure to do so can result in civil penalties even if it meets NYC code.
