Are DOB-ECB Violations increasing? We did the math, and here’s what we found:

  • DOB-ECB violations increased by over 1,000 from February 2016 to March 2016, right after the DOB’s announcement to ramp up construction enforcement.
  • Construction violations during that same period also increased by 1,000, up over 46% from March of the previous year.
  • From January 2016 to July 2016, construction-related violations were no less than 71% of all issued DOB-ECB violations.

You can read more about the city’s emphasis on construction-related enforcement at The Real Deal, where our research is quoted.

In addition to recent years, SiteCompli also analyzed total DOB-ECB violations issued from 2010 – 2015, breaking down issuances by total violations, violations per square foot, and violations per building.
