The City of Philadelphia recently instituted several updates to its zoning code and adopted a new building code, which has significant implications for both new real estate development projects and changes to previously approved projects.

This program will include a discussion of the important code changes, including:

  • significant new requirements for community notice of new construction;
  • stringent procedures for the City’s administrative review of changes to projects previously approved by the Zoning Board of Adjustment;
  • the new affordable housing floor area bonus;
  • deadlines for completing projects under the old building code;
  • changes to building code requirements, with implications for Board of Building Standards variances; and
  • plumbing and energy code updates.
