               ORDER AND OPINION REVOKING ORDER DISMISSING PETITION
               FOR ADMINISTRATIVE REVIEW, AND TERMINATING PROCEEDING

        On July 3, 1991, the Commissioner  issued  an  order  dismissing  as
        untimely the above-referenced Petition for Administrative Review. 

        By  a  letter  dated  July  15,  1991,  the   petitioner   requested
        reconsideration  of  the  above  referenced  dismissal  order.   The
        petitioner pointed out that administrative appeals under PAR  Docket
        No.  BB-410791-RT  and  BC-420105-RT,  similarly   dismissed,   were
        reopened, based on irregularity in a vital matter in that the thirty 
        five (35) day period for filing a petition should have been  treated
        as running from the date when actual notice of the Interim Order was 
        given to the tenants by the owner.  The proceedings were remanded to 
        the Administrator for processing as a challenge to the Maximum  Base
        Rent order.  The petitioner  retained  the  right  to  petition  for
        administrative review an adverse challenge determination.

        As  the  petitioner  has  also   recognized,   the   Administrator's
        subsequent MBR order of October 9, 1987,  denying  the  increase  or
        establishment of  Maximum  Base  Rents  for  1986-87,  afforded  the
        tenants complete relief, and rendered moot the tenant's request  for
        further relief set forth in the petition.

        THEREFORE, in accordance with the provisions of Chapter 403, Laws of 
        1983, as amended by Chapter 102, Laws of  1984,  as  implemented  by
        Operational Bulletin 84-1, it is

        ORDERED, that the Commissioner's July 3, 1991 order, dismissing  the
        petitioner's administrative appeal for untimeliness, be revoked, and 
        the instant proceedings be terminated as duplicative  and  moot,  by
        reason of the above.

        ISSUED:



                                                                      
                                        ELLIOT SANDER
                                        Deputy Commissioner
