          ORDER AND OPINION TERMINATING PETITION FOR ADMINISTRATIVE REVIEW

      The above-named petitioner-owner timely filed an Administrative Appeal 
      against an order issued on October 26, 1990 by the Rent Administrator, 
      Gertz Plaza, Jamaica, New York, concerning the housing accommodations known 
      as 24-15 28th Street, Astoria, New York, Various Apartments.

      The owner commenced the proceeding below by filing an application for a 
      major capital improvement (MCI) rent increase based on the installation of 
      a new roof at the subject premises.  By notices dated August 17th, and 
      September 21, 1990 the owner was requested to provide additional 
      information.  The order of the Administrator appealed herein denied the 
      applications based on the owner's failure to respond to the aforesaid 
      notices.

      On appeal, the petitioner-owner contends, in substance, that it did file 
      all the necessary papers and answers with DHCR; and that this information 
      was sent via certified mail.  In support of its contention the owner 
      submitted a copy of a domestic return receipt for certified mailing article 
      number PO 53863625 stamped as being received by DHCR on August 31, 1990.

      The Commissioner notes that by a notice dated January 28, 1992, the owner 
      and the tenants were notified that the Rent Administrator had reopened the 
      proceeding under Docket No. DJ 130067-OM to reconsider the order issued on 
      October 26, 1990.  The reopened proceeding has been assigned Docket No. GA 
      130026-RK and the record discloses that the owner's contention is the same 
      in both cases.

      In view of the foregoing, the Commissioner is of the opinion that the 
      owner's Administrative Appeal against the order issued under Docket No. DJ 
      130067-OM should be terminated as the matter is still pending before the 
      Rent Administrator.  Any party aggrieved by the superseding order will have 
      the opportunity to file an Administrative Appeal within thirty-five days 
      after its date of issuance.

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











          DOCKET NUMBER: EK 130334-RO
      ORDERED, that this Administrative Appeal be, and the same hereby is, 
      terminated.

      ISSUED:














                                                                    
                                           JOSEPH A. D'AGOSTA
                                       Acting Deputy Commissioner
