                                   PETITIONER

                      ORDER AND OPINION TERMINATING PROCEEDING

               On June 25, 1987, the above-named landlord filed a petition 
          for administrative review of an order issued on May 28, 1987 by the 
          Administrator concerning the housing accommodation known as 
          Apartment 1FW, 237 West 18th Street, New York, New York.

               This proceeding was commenced by the landlord filing an 
          application, dated September 26, 1986, requesting that the rent 
          agency issue an order permitting the landlord to refuse to renew 
          the subject tenant's lease.  The subject landlord asserted that the 
          application was based on its intention to withdraw the subject 
          apartment from the rental market.

               In the order under review herein, the Administrator denied the 
          landlord's application.

               In its petition the landlord asserts that the Administrator's 
          order was incorrectly decided.

               The Commissioner notes that the subject landlord in the 1988 
          and 1989 apartment registrations indicate that the subject 
          apartment had been vacant.  The Commissioner further notes that the 
          subject landlord in the 1991 apartment registration points out that 
          the subject apartment is being used for a commercial purpose, and 
          that the subject apartment is temporarily exempt from rent 
          regulations.



















          ADM. REVIEW DOCKET NO. BF410400RO

               As the above-mentioned apartment registrations note that the 
          subject tenant has vacated the subject apartment, the Commissioner 
          finds that the issue raised in this proceeding, which is whether 
          the landlord could refuse to renew the subject tenant's lease, is 
          thereby rendered moot.  Accordingly, the Commissioner is of the 
          opinion that this proceeding should be terminated.

               THEREFORE, in accordance with the City Rent and Rehabilitation 
          Law and the Rent and Eviction Regulations, it is

               ORDERED, that this proceeding be, and the same hereby is, 
          terminated.

          ISSUED:




                                                                          
                                             JOSEPH A. D'AGOSTA
                                             Deputy Commissioner
