Filing two separate applications for your project is a great way to get a head start on breaking ground. The first application, exclusively for interior work, can be processed through the LPC as a Fast Track Application.
However, a second application, specifically for major alterations and exterior work, may take time for full LPC approval. Given this, splitting applications is an excellent way to save time. Once an application is approved by the LPC and DOB, you can immediately begin filing for permits.
