          ------------------------------------X   ADMINISTRATIVE REVIEW
          IN THE MATTER OF THE ADMINISTRATIVE     DOCKET NO.: CB430201RT
          APPEAL OF
                   VARIOUS TENANTS OF 345
                   RIVERSIDE DRIVE,
                                                  RENT ADMINISTRATOR'S
                               PETITIONERS        DOCKET NO.: AJ410166OM 
          ------------------------------------X

                  ORDER AND OPINION TERMINATING PROCEEDING AS MOOT

          On February 9, 1988, the above-named petitioner-tenants filed a 
          petition for administrative review (PAR) of an order issued on 
          January 5, 1988, by the Rent Administrator, concerning the housing 
          accommodations known as 345 Riverside Drive A.K.A. 320 West 107th 
          Street, New York, NY, various apartments, wherein the Administrator
          granted the owner's application for a rent increase which was based 
          on the installation of various major capital improvements (MCIs).
           
          The Commissioner has reviewed all of the evidence in the record and 
          has carefully considered that portion of the record relevant to the 
          issue raised by the administrative appeal.

          The owner commenced the instant proceeding by initially filing an 
          application for a rent increase predicated on the installation of 
          a sidewalk, oil burner/boiler, roof, elevator repairs, compactor 
          and copper piping at a total claimed cost of $164,950.00.

          In Docket No. AJ410166OM, issued January 5, 1988, the Rent 
          Administrator partially approved the owner's MCI application by 
          authorizing a rent increase of $12.92 per room, per month, for all 
          rent controlled and rent stabilized apartments in the subject 
          building predicated on the installation of an oil burner/boiler , 
          roof, compactor and copper piping, which work was found to qualify 
          as an MCI.

          The Commissioner notes that the Rent Administrator reopened the 
          proceeding under Docket No. CE410004RP, reprocessed the owner's 
          application and then issued an order on October 3, 1989, modifying 
          Docket No. AJ410166OM by disallowing the cost of the boiler/burner 
          in response to tenant complaints, and in  so doing, granted the 
          relief requested in this petition.

          In view of the foregoing, the Commissioner is of the opinion that 
          ADMIN. REVIEW DOCKET NO. CB430201RT













          the tenants' administrative appeal against the original decision of 
          the Administrator under Docket No. CB430201RT should be terminated 
          as moot.  Any aggrieved party had the right to timely file an 
          administrative appeal against the order issued under Docket No. 
          CE410004RP within 35 days of its issuance and the Division's 
          records reveal that such a PAR was filed by the tenants and is 
          awaiting determination (Docket No. DK410121RT).

          THEREFORE, in accordance with the applicable provisions of the Rent 
          Stabilization Law and Code and the Rent Eviction Regulations for 
          New York City, it is

          ORDERED, that this petition be, and the same hereby is, terminated 
          as moot. 



          ISSUED:




                                                                          
                                                  LULA M. ANDERSON  
                                                  Deputy Commissioner
