Multifamily Remodel

What is it?

You need a Multifamily Remodel Permit when altering any interior portion of a multifamily residential unit.

Examples of common projects are:
  • Removing walls inside an individual unit
  • Converting a mezzanine into a bedroom
  • Removing any section of a wall between a kitchen and living space.

How Much Does it Cost?

Fees are based on the value of your project. You pay a plan review fee when you submit your plans and the rest when you pick up your permit. See the Fee Schedule (A-Z) page to download the Commercial/Multi-Family Fee Schedule for fee related information. 

How Long Does It Take?

We try to finish our initial review of new and addition permits in 21 calendar days from submittal. How long it takes to get the final permit depends on how complex your project is and how many corrections, if any, you need to make.
Our expedited process is available if your project qualifies. See the expedited permit checklist for more information. If still unsure contact the Plans Examiner of the Day at

During plan review the project reviewer will send you a correction letter if changes are needed. You may resubmit your plans after making the required corrections. The project reviewer will provide instructions on how to upload new plans through the E-Track portal.
3. Get Permit
You will be contacted when your plans are approved. Once permit issuance fees are paid, you can pick up your approved permit and plans at the Development Service Center with a blank USB drive, or log into the E-Track Portal. You can print your permit and approved plans.
