“The first thing you do is ask for a copy of their plan, a description of what they intend to do and what they want from you,” says attorney Dani Schwartz, a partner at Rosenberg & Estis. “Then you would discuss with your attorney whether this is a serious access issue or not, whether it makes sense to get an engineer/architect or site-safety consultant. It may be that the plan is very intrusive and does not fall under the access statute, in which case the discussion may be over. Alternatively, if it seems that the plans are viable and more or less reasonable, it may make sense to get a construction professional involved.”

Rosenberg & Estis was a proud sponsor of the Anchin Construction & Development Forum on February 9, 2017. R&E Member Richard L. Sussman participated as a panelist to discuss construction and development activity in and around NYC, including the prospects for the next few years and trends affecting the marketplace for office, residential retail and hotel development. The recent past has seen an historic high in construction and development, pushing costs for land and labor to all-time highs. However, with a glut in luxury condos, contraction of office requirements, a changing retail landscape, higher barriers to construction financing, and the lack of 421-a tax abatements, the industry needs to prepare itself for the demands of a changed environment and a possible slowdown once the current pipeline of projects come to completion. The panelists discussed how we mitigate the challenges that this topsy-turvy market brings. Among other topics, Sussman's panel (entitled "The State of the Market for Construction & Development") discussed different trends that have been observed with new construction, including how lifestyle changes affect construction in the workplace and residential settings. In one example, Sussman noted that both new/redesigned residential and office space is consciously being designed to foster an "environment of accidental collisions", meaning that the construction or lay out of the space is meant to create and foster and encourage interactions among people. Along with the concept of a collaborative setting, there are also trends of reducing private individual space and in office space, having a higher density of desks and empty desks so as to allow for future growth in a cost efficient manner.

Jeffrey Turkel, attorney for the 25,000-member Rent Stabilization Association, argued that the city’s Rent Guidelines Board overstepped its authority because the words “tenant affordability” are not in the law governing the rates of rent stabilized apartments.

The RSA, which counts roughly 25,000 landlords of rent-stabilized buildings, argues that the board improperly considered “tenant affordability” in making its decision. “(The board’s) function is not to defend the tenants. It’s the Legislature that should decide what is burdensome,” the association’s attorney Jeffrey Turkel said.
