We provide permit expediting services for building permits, zoning & use permits, zoning variances/appeals, and compliance requirements such as Commercial Activity Licenses, Philly Tax Accounts, and Housing Rental Licenses.
We understand the inner-workings of permitting procedures and are effective advocates for our clients when dealing with city departments. We lead the charge for getting your permits through the city’s red tape, procedures, and complex requirements.
Permitting and zoning are dynamic beasts with many moving parts. We assess your project to provide feasibility reports which allow you to make empowered decisions. We also provide zoning training and consult on complex permitting projects.
Avoid common pitfalls and no longer waste your time waiting in lines at Municipal Buildings like Licenses & Inspections. Timing is everything in this business, so well-calculated hustle is our theme.
Poorly-managed projects that drag out forever wastes your money. Our goal is to help you open your business, build your project, or get your investment cash flowing as fast as possible.
These projects turn into nightmares when you try to do it yourself or work with the wrong people. Plus, we can quickly navigate the City’s procedures and requirements. We got your back.
As a homeowner, you likely don’t have the time or patience to deal with getting the permits for your dream home. We’re here to get the process done for you and even ensure that contractors don’t hold you up. The goal is to keep you from living in your parent’s basement for longer than necessary while waiting for the job to get done.
If you require a variance to maximize your investment or achieve compliance, we will establish the best strategy for your project so that your money is being well invested. If you are a developer with multiple projects, it is vital that you work with expediters who get the job done effectively. We assist investors with the due diligence process of assessing deals to ensure that you aren’t set back many months and lots of money by being left in the dark.
Certain businesses require specific zoning permits and business licenses; such as a special exception variance or a Zoning / Use registration permit. In addition, you will need certain pre-requisite licenses, accounts, and permits such as a Commercial Activity License. We handle the entire process for you so you can get your business up and running as quickly and cohesively as possible.
“As a developer, I don’t have time to manage the logistics that go into zoning projects. Before working with Philadelphia Zoning, I had to go down to the city to do my own expediting, etc. PZ is a one stop shop that hires and manages everything in-house (zoning attorney, architect/engineer, expediters) to make sure the process is effective and efficient, which saves me time, money, and energy.”

“For my acupuncture studio to get off the ground, it was essential that my home be re-zoned to accommodate a business on the first floor. Philadelphia Zoning made it happen, allaying my fears every step of the way. To those who say I didn’t need a zoning attorney and could have done it myself: the time saved and headaches prevented by hiring people who specialize in zoning law made it worth every penny.”
– Eva Zeller, Owner – Acupuncture Off Broad
All I have to say is this team has SAVED my butt! From working through a messy system and getting my case heard by an unbiased audience, to appealing a case, and getting me my MULTI FAM allowance, I wouldn’t know where I’d be with out them. Communication is a 10, diligence is a 10, organization is a 10, and they work well with several different attorneys to have matters handled. A++ in my book. Thanks !
