Inside R&E Podcast

Inside R&E is a podcast hosted by New York City’s leading real estate attorneys who discuss current issues facing developers, owners and operators in the industry. In our latest episode, Michael T. Carr, R&E Litigation Member, re-examines the current state of Local Law 97 with Jac Zadrima and MacKenzie Forsberg, Co-Founders of Genesis Realty Group LLC, as the New York City Department of Buildings continues to unveil details surrounding the rules and guidelines. Their discussion offers clarity to NYC owners and operators across many of the most crucial intricacies of LL 97 – such as Covered Buildings under Article 321, prescriptive measures, key compliance dates, financing strategies and pathways to compliance, as well as the use of consultants or related experts, like architects and engineers. While the broader landscape of NYC’s ambitious climate action plan continues to evolve, this episode seeks to provide real estate professionals – as well as residents and tenants – the knowledge and tools needed to achieve carbon reduction goals and to mitigate exposure to penalties when compliance is not possible within target periods.
