To clarify a report in recent industry publications, balcony enclosure zoning compliance will not fall under the requirements of a FISP (formerly Local Law 11) report. To be clear, this does not mean that compliance is not required; it simply means that confirmation of compliance will not fall under the requirements of a fa├žade inspection and report. Balcony enclosures are considered appurtenances, so they must continue to be inspected for safety.

Keep an eye out for confirmation of this decision on the DOB site shortly.
