DHCR Inspection Showed Apartment Had Two Rooms

LVT Number: #30563

Landlord applied for MCI rent hikes based on elevator upgrading. The DRA ruled for landlord. Tenant appealed and lost. Tenant claimed that landlord improperly designated his apartment as containing two rooms. Tenant argued that his apartment had one room since an archway between areas in the unit was larger than a double-door and didn't create a second room. Also, the sleeping area didn't contain a window.
