Buildings in NYC with Major Capital Improvements
Applications filed 2010-2020

Major Capital Improvements (MCI) are known to directly result in the displacement of low-income tenants residing in rent-regulated apartments.

The NYS Division of Homes and Community Renewal (HCR) defines a MCI as the following: When owners make improvements to a building subject to the rent stabilization or rent control laws, they can apply to HCR for approval to raise the rents of the tenants. When the improvement meets certain requirements it will be considered a MCI.

This is an interactive map showing which buildings in NYC have had MCI applications, including the improvement applied for, how much it allegedly cost, and application date.
