We haven't had a court decision that legal experts say "could impact thousands of tenants across the city" in a while, but consider that streak broken! The tenants of Columbus House, a former Mitchell-Lama building at 95 West 95th Street, are now protected against rent increases. Landlord the Witkoff Group bought the building in 2006 and hoped to convert the affordable housing to market rates, tripling the rent in some cases. Lawyers think 17,000 current and former Mitchell-Lama apartments statewide could be affected. [Real Deal]
