Garage Roof, Asbestos Removal, and Sidewalk Bridge Included in MCI Costs

LVT Number: #28491

The DRA granted landlord's application for MCI rent hikes based on installation of a new building roof, new garage roof, pointing, and architectural services in connection with the work. Tenants appealed and lost. Tenants objected to paying for the garage roof increase since they didn't use the garage. And they objected to the inclusion of asbestos removal and sidewalk bridge costs. The DHCR noted that the garage roof was attached to, and formed an extension of, the building structure.
