Crown Heights’ Tenant Building Member
Landlord(s): Renaissance Realty Group LLC
Landlord/Management Office: 1946 Coney Island Blvd, Brooklyn, NY 11223
CHTU Members Since: October 2014
Tenants in this rent-stabilized building – many of whom moved in during the ’70s with government rental assistance – are fighting sudden rent increases of up to 120% due to the landlord revoking a long-standing rent restriction on the building called “Preferential Rent.” City officials have tried to negotiate a deal that would restore the building’s affordability, but Renaissance has refused to cooperate, and is marketing the building for $500,000 per unit.
