          ORDER AND OPINION REMANDING PROCEEDING TO THE RENT ADMINISTRATOR


        This Order and Opinion is issued pursuant to an order of the Supreme 
        Court, County of New York, Justice Sandifer, dated January 19, 1990, 
        which ordered remit of an Article 78 Proceeding, directing the Division 
        to reconsider its "deemed denial," upon which the court proceeding was 
        based.

        On August 24, 1989, the above named petitioner-owner filed a timely 
        Petition for Administrative Review against an order issued by the Rent 
        Administrator, 92-31 Union Hall Street, Jamaica, New York concerning 
        housing accommodations known as 5 West 102nd Street, New York, New 
        York, wherein the Rent Administrator determined that the subject 
        building had not been substantially rehabilitated within the meaning of 
        Section 5(a)(5) of the Emergency Tenant Protection Act.

        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 
        the Rent Stabilization Law and Code, it is








          DOCKET NO.:  DH410438RO



        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
