         ORDER AND OPINION REMANDING PROCEEDING TO THE RENT ADMINISTRATOR


     On April 1, 1988, the above named petitioner-landlord filed a timely 
     Petition for Administrative Review against an order issued by the Rent 
     Administrator, 55 Church Street, White Plains, New York concerning housing 
     accommodations known as 34 Clarendon Avenue, Yonkers, New York, wherein the 
     Rent Administrator determined that the subject building had not been 
     substantially rehabilitated within the memory of Section 9(e) [now 
     2500.9(e)] of the Tenant Protection Regulations (TPR).

     The issue in this appeal is whether the building was substantially 
     rehabilitated.

     The applicable sections of the Tenant Protection Regulations are Sections 
     2500.9(e) and 2510.8.

     The Commissioner has reviewed all of the evidence in the record and has 
     carefully considered that portion of the record relevant to the issues 
     raised by the administrative appeal.

     On November 17, 1992, the New York State Supreme Court, Appellate Division, 
     issued a decision entitled Eastern Pork Products Company v. DHCR, 590 
     N.Y.S.2d 77, wherein the court found the Division's standards for 
     processing substantial rehabilitation proceedings to be "overly rigid".

     Accordingly, the Commissioner is of the opinion that this proceeding must 
     be remanded to the Rent Administrator for further processing in view of the 
     Eastern Pork Products decision.

     THEREFORE, in accordance with the Emergency Tenant Protection Act and 
     Regulations, it is 









          DOCKET NO.:  CC810490RO

     ORDERED, that this petition be, and the same hereby is, granted to the 
     extent of remanding this proceeding  to the Rent Administrator for further 
     processing in accordance with this order and opinion.  The order and 
     determination of the Rent Administrator remains in full force and effect 
     until a new order is issued upon remand.

ISSUED:


                                                                          
                                               JOSEPH A. D'AGOSTA
                                               Deputy Commissioner
