            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 200 West 85th Street, New York City 10024.

               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, GH420002BO was 
          issued on April 2, 1993.  In that order, the Administrator affirmed 
          the finding of FF424119BR issued July 21, 1992, that the owner be 
          denied eligibility for a 1992/93 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 alleges that all violations have been 
          removed and that the building was completely renovated.  The owner 
          also contends that he is waiting for a new Certificate of occupancy 
          to be sent.  The owner provides no documentation in support of this 
          assertion.

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


















          ADM. REVIEW DOCKET NO.: HD420065RO

               A list of Pending Violations discloses that, as of January 1, 
          1991 there were (11) eleven Rent Impairing Violations and one 
          hundred fifty-four (154) non-rent Impairing Violations of record 
          against the subject premises.

               Section 2202.3(h) of the N.Y.C. Rent and Eviction Regulations 
          provides that, in order to gain eligibility to increase MBRs at a 
          particular premises the owner must certify to the DHCR that 80% of 
          the non-rent impairing (and 100% of the Rent impairing) Violations 
          of record at that particular premises one year before the effective 
          date of the order of eligibility have been repaired by six months 
          before the effective date.  In the instant proceeding, the owner 
          had to certify that 80% of the non rent impairing Violations of 
          record at the subject premises as of January 1, 1992 had been 
          repaired by June 30, 1991.

               As indicated above, the owner has not presented any evidence 
          on appeal in support of its contention.

               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
