NEW YORK — The Zoning Lab Launches with Marin Architects – New York Build 2023 NEW YORK – MARCH 7, 2023 – Marin Architects is pleased to announce the debut of The Zoning Lab at the upcoming New York Build 2023 with an interactive exhibit at booth 944 [visit: www.newyorkbuildexpo.com] As a lead exhibitor among 300 participating companies, this brand new Zoning Lab service will offer builders, developers and the wider real estate industry the ability to optimize their project investment from Day 1 – through a dedicated zoning and code compliance consulting office based in Midtown Manhattan. “Since the adoption of the country’s first Zoning Resolution in 1916, New York City has played a seminal role in the history and development of planning and zoning. Having a clear understanding of the intention that zoning plays in the overall building design, The Zoning Lab will help clients maximize the value of their development,” says Walter Marin, NCARB, RA. He continues, “This is to maintain a building compliance standard, for example, so that a single-family home is not built adjacent to a 60-story skyscraper. With expertise in zoning law, The Zoning Lab offers architectural zoning solutions for the building industry and overall cityscape that are unparalleled. Manhattan is a perfect example of how zoning enforcement creates a cohesive urban environment and mimics a hilly landscape.” A prime example of a rezoned project designed and built with The Zoning Lab and Marin Architects is the Apple Store in Williamsburg, where a creative inversion of the upper and lower levels generated a unique solution that increased the value of both. Working with largescale midtown developers, such as Shvo and others, The Zoning Lab also partners with global brands to create multiple retail destinations. In alliance with NYCHA while also serving as consultants for Guidehouse, The Zoning Lab brings a level of service, dedicated experience, and legal knowledge to the forefront of the New York City residential and mixed-use real estate development industry. Consultations are available by appointment. Please visit: https://www.marinarchitects.com/thezoninglab
