Residential Demolition

All residential projects which remove 50% or more of the surface area of exterior walls or perimeter foundation are required to obtain a residential demolition permit, fulfill neighborhood noticing requirements for demolitions, and pay the City’s Demolition Tax. Projects that utilize manual deconstruction with a Certified Deconstruction Contractor are exempt from the Demolition Tax. Additionally, manual deconstruction is required for all demolitions of residential dwellings built in the year 1940 or earlier.
