 Services

We have handled some of the most complicated real estate projects in New York City history. For over 30 years, Capalino has been the go-to advisory firm for the biggest names and projects in real estate: Hudson Yards, The High Line, the West Side Railyards, the former St. Vincent’s campus in Greenwich Village, and Chelsea Market, in addition to countless small and mid-size projects throughout the five boroughs.

Capalino has been instrumental in making the city skyline what it is today. Our highly skilled and experienced team members are the best in their field, helping you with every stage of a project from securing land use approvals and construction permits, identifying smart sites, developing affordable housing, and financing your project. We will work with you to define goals, identify and evaluate sites and financing approaches, craft creative solutions to address physical, regulatory, and other constraints, develop a strategic approach and roadmap for completion, and help secure construction permits, licenses and other approvals necessary for success.

We are expert problem solvers. Our permitting team will help you mitigate risk and save time and money no matter where you are in the development cycle. We work collaboratively with our clients and their project teams to devise and execute strategies for timely issuance of permissions from a variety of City, State and governmental agencies, including the NYC Landmarks Preservation Commission,  Departments of Buildings, Fire, Environmental Protection, Transportation and Parks, Utility Companies, and the MTA. Whether you have an ‘as-of-right’ project, are seeking a pre-determination to inform what may be viable at your site, or are on the verge of getting a Certificate of Occupancy, we know how to get it done.
