NOS.:
                        PETITIONER      51724, 51341, 31863
----------------------------------x


  ORDER AND OPINION REMANDING PROCEEDINGS TO RENT ADMINISTRATOR
                                
      The Commissioner has consolidated the above proceedings  as
all contain common issues of law and fact.

      The above named petitioner owner filed timely Petitions for
Administrative  Review against orders of the  Rent  Administrator
issued August 28, 1987, September 14, 1987 and October 22,  1987.
The  orders concerned housing accommodations known as  Apt.  30-A
located  at  269 Grand Central Parkway, Apt.14-V located  at  270
Grand Central Parkway, and Apt. 18-S located at 271 Grand Central
Parkway,  Floral Park, N.Y. wherein the Administrator  determined
the   tenants'  objections  to  the  owner's  rent  and  services
registration statements.

      The  Commissioner  has reviewed the  record  and  carefully
considered  that portion relevant to the issues raised  by  these
appeals

      Each  appeal herein raises the identical issue, to  wit  --
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 in each of the
above referenced proceedings.

      After  careful consideration, the Commissioner  is  of  the
opinion   that  these  proceedings  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 orders  of  the
Commissioner (see Docket Nos. BD 110434 RT, BC 110212 RT and
BD  110083 RO) 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.

      THEREFORE, pursuant to the Rent Stabilization Law and  Code
it is

     ORDERED, that these proceedings be, and the same hereby are,
remanded  to  the  Rent Administrator for further  processing  in
accordance with this order and opinion.

ISSUED:



                                                                 JOSEPH A. D'AGOSTA
                                   Acting Deputy Commissioner
