About Richard Neuman

Richard Neuman’s Bio

Managing Commercial Real Estate (CRE) projects is a daunting task for any size company. As a business you may be asking yourself, “How do I deal with all of the different components of a construction and relocation project without interfering with my day job?” or “How do I manage the vendors, architects and contractors while avoiding costly change orders and hidden costs?”

Over the past 25 years, I have provided Cradle to Cubicle guidance as an Owner’s Rep and tenant advocate to commercial tenants, hospitals and healthcare, broadcast facilities and charter schools.

As Vice President in JLL’s Northeast region Project and Development Services group, my role is to lead businesses through the seemingly overwhelming challenges of construction and relocation, managing your budgets and project timeline.

    Dear Mr. Neuman.

    Quick question: I live in a apartment building in the Bronx and the Landlord has added an extra bathroom in an apartment that originally had only one bathroom ever since the building was constructed and many other changes of the sort. In addition,he has also completely remodeled the Super’s basement apartment by changing the design completely. Does the Landlord need a permit and if so, does it need to be exposed?

    Thanking you in advance for your help and assistance.

    Gigi R.

    • Hi Gigi-

      Thank you for your question. I’m unable to answer your question with authority as residential construction is not my area of expertise. Generally if you are adding plumbing and electrical that changes the original filing with the DOB, it would require permitting. I’m going to reach out to one of my expeditor colleagues Alan Cabello of AC Building Consultants to weigh in on this thread. Stay tuned.
