            ORDER AND OPINION DENYING PETITION FOR ADMINISTRATIVE REVIEW

               The above-named owner filed a timely petition for 
          administrative review of an order issued concerning the housing 
          accommodations known as 213 West 80th Street, apartments 3W and 5W, 
          New York, N.Y.

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

               The issue before the Commissioner is whether the 
          Administrator's order was correct.

               The Administrator's order being appealed, EJ420111BO was 
          issued on October 30, 1992.  In that order, the Administrator 
          affirmed the finding of DL422216BR, issued October 4, 1990,that the 
          owner be denied eligibility for a 1990/91 Maximum Base Rent (MBR) 
          increase, due to the owner's failure to meet the violation 
          certification requirements necessary to the owner's being granted 
          an MBR increase.

               On appeal the owner states that he received a J-51 Tax 
          Abatement and as such should be granted an MBR increase.

               The Commissioner is of the opinion that this petition should 
          be denied.



















          ADM. REVIEW DOCKET NO.: GK420087RO

               The requirements for eligibility for a J-51 Tax Abatement, 
          administered by the New York City Department of Housing 
          Preservation and Development and for eligibility to raise MBRs are 
          separate and distinct.  Any overlap in requirements is co-
          incidental to the separate and distinct purposes of each program 
          each administered by different agencies of different governments.  
           
               The Commissioner notes that an examination of the file reveals 
          that the owner did not correct sufficient violations at the subject 
          premises in order to qualify for an MBR increase for 1990/91 at 
          these premises.

               THEREFORE, in accordance with the provisions of the Rent and 
          Eviction Regulations, it is

               ORDERED, that this petition for administrative review be, and 
          the same hereby is, denied, and that the order of the Rent 
          Administrator be, and the same hereby is, affirmed.

          ISSUED:



                                                                             
                                             JOSEPH A. D'AGOSTA
                                             Deputy Commissioner
