Welcome to Building in Manhattan

In 2001, James Mansfield started handing out leaflets and putting them under doors in The West Village to be a handyman.

Now we work with some of the world’s leading architectural design firms, building multimillion dollar spaces for all kinds of people.

We’ve learned an awful lot about building in Manhattan, all the various processes, the bureaucracies, the building management, and all the different things you have to understand as you enter this process.

The purpose of the Building in Manhattan videos is to answer common questions and arm you with essential knowledge as you begin your building project.
