Rent Wars: Stuy Town Appeal Coming

New, 75 comments

The big and bitter Stuy Town lawsuit is headed for one final battle, the Times reports. The Appellate Division of State Supreme Court, which ruled that Stuyvesant Town/Peter Cooper Village landlord Tishman Speyer wrongfully deregulated thousands of apartments while receiving tax breaks aimed at preserving rent-regulated housing, will allow TS to appeal the case. If the Court of Appeals upholds the decision, Tishman Speyer will be forced to refund around $200 million in rent overcharges on 4,400 apartments, and a wave of similar tenant lawsuits might follow.
