In 2009, the City Council passed the Greener Greater Buildings package. Local Law 84 requires all buildings greater than 50,000 sq. ft. to benchmark their buildings annually starting 5/1/11. Starting in 2012, commercial buildings' scores will be made publicly available on the Department of Finance's webpage, with residential buildings' scores to be posted in 2013.
11-7 Update from the City regarding Benchmarking Compliance
3-21 Update: The City has notified us that they have received overwhelming concerns raised by property owners/management regarding meeting the Benchmarking (Local Law 84) deadlines on short notice of the rule publication. Because of thie the City intends to delay the deadline by 3 months by delaying enforcement and not assessing penalties for failure to benchmark.
