          ORDER AND OPINION REMANDING PETITION FOR ADMINISTRATIVE REVIEW


     On October 26, 1990 the above named petitioner-owner filed a Petition  for
     Administrative Review against an order issued on October 22, 1990  by  the
     Rent Administrator, 92-31 Union Hall Street, Jamaica, New York  concerning
     housing accommodations known as 636 West 172nd Street, various  Apartments
     wherein the Administrator granted in part,  the  owner's  application  for
     rent increases, based on major capital improvement installations  for  new
     windows, new entrance, vestibule, roof and basement doors; a new roof; and 
     pointing.

     In this petition for administrative review (PAR) the  owner  contends,  in
     substance, that the administrator  erroneously  calculated  the  effective
     date for the rent increase to be August 1, 1989 when it should  have  been
     determined to be February 16, 1989, the date the major capital improvement 
     application was claimed to have been initially filed..

     After a careful consideration of the entire record, the Commissioner is of 
     the  opinion  that  this  proceeding  should  be  remanded  to  the   Rent
     Administrator for further processing in accordance  with  this  order  and
     opinion.

     The record discloses that the  Administrator  is  currently  reviewing  an
     issue which developed from remand action taken, following the  tenants  of
     the subject premises filing petitions for administrative  review,  (Docket
     Nos. EK 410159-RJ through EK 410177-RT and EL 4200328-RT) challenging  the
     instant order (DD 430055-OM).  The  owner's  petition  for  administrative
     review which also  challenges  the  same  order,  is  being  remanded  for
     simultaneous resolution with the issue pending  before  the  Administrator
     under pending proceeding under Docket No. GE 530002-RK.

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











          DOCKET NUMBER: EJ 430337-RO
     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 in  conjunction  with
     pending proceeding under Docket No. GE 530002-RK.

     ISSUED:









                                                                   
                                          JOSEPH A. D'AGOSTA
                                      Acting Deputy Commissioner
