Landlord Can Alter Lobby Entrances, Parking Spaces, and Playgrounds
LVT Number: #24587
Landlord asked the DHCR for permission to change the number and configuration of the parking spaces at the rent-stabilized building complex, to reconfigure the layout of the walkways, to adjust the layout and location of four playgrounds, to increase and enhance the front lobby, and to eliminate one front lobby entrance from each building in the complex. The DRA ruled for landlord. Tenant appealed and lost. Tenant claimed that the work constituted a decrease in required services and that therefore rents should be reduced.
