            ORDER AND OPINION REMANDING PROCEEDING TO RENT ADMINISTRATOR
                                          
               On June 18, 1987 the above named petitioner-owner filed a 
          Petition for Administrative Review against an order of the Rent 
          Administrator issued June 1, 1987 concerning the housing 
          accommodations known as Apt. 5-S located at 269 Grand Central 
          Parkway, Queens, N.Y. wherein the Administrator determined the 
          tenants' objections to the owner's rent and services registration 
          statement.

               The Commissioner has reviewed the record and carefully 
          considered that portion relevant to the issues raised by this 
          appeal.

               This appeal presents the issue of whether the Administrator 
          was correct in finding that the recreational facilities located in 
          the North Shore Towers complex are a "required or essential 
          service" which the owner must maintain and register as a building 
          service.  The owner argues that the Administrator was incorrect in 
          so finding.

               After careful consideration of the evidence in the record, the 
          Commissioner is of the opinion that this proceeding must be 
          remanded to the Administrator for consolidation with other 
          currently pending proceedings relating to the same issue.

               A search of the Division records reveals the existence of 
          orders of the Commissioner (see Docket Nos. BD 110434 RT, BC 110212 
          RT, BD 110083 RO, and BJ 130148 RO ET AL.) concerning several 
          housing accommodations in the complex.  The Commissioner remanded 
          the issue of the recreational facilities to the Administrator to 
          render a uniform determination.  Accordingly, the Commissioner 
          deems it appropriate to remand these proceedings for consolidation 
          therewith.
