What is the Status of My Permit?

PLI has developed two publicly available resources to help applicants and the public independently track applications through our permitting processes.

Permits Pending Review 

This document is an Excel Spreadsheet that lists all permits pending PLI review.  The list is updated weekly and identifies basic permit information including the date of submission and the expected date of PLI review.  The order of the list corresponds to PLI’s review order.

The data can be searched and/or filtered by: permit #, permit type, address, work description, occupancy, status, submitted date and expected date.  This resource is helpful in confirming when to expect a PLI response and the queue position of an individual permit, in relation to all pending permits.

PLI review time frames are as follows:

  • Initial commercial submission – 30 business days
  • Revised or amended commercial submission – 15 business days
  • Initial residential submission – 15 business days
  • Revised or amended residential submission – 8 business days


This website is an interactive map that tracks PLI permits, PLI enforcement actions, PLI licenses and Department of City Planning’s development reviews.

Under the “Building” view, users can search by address, neighborhood or zip to look for open and closed PLI permits.  Users can find individual permits by filtering by the permit number.  Additional filters can be applied based on status (open/complete) and permit type.  This information is updated on a daily basis.  This resource is useful for confirming the current status and history of a permit.
