Why don't we have a roof deck?
There has been tremendous interest in a roof deck. The current plan is to consider a roof deck when the roof is next replaced.
Why don't we have a 24-hour doorman?
At various times some shareholders have expressed interest in expanding doorman service for the building from 17 to 24 hours per day. The increased cost to Abingdon Court for this service would result in a maintenance fee increase for all shareholders. In addition, if service is expanded, it could never be returned to 17 hour service due to the union contract. The Board has considered this issue and, to date, has determined not to expand doorman service.
I'd like to make renovations. What do I need to do?

Renovations must be planned appropriately (including the use of an architect/engineer for structural changes), comply with all applicable city regulations/codes, and be submitted to the Board for approval. For more details, see the Shareholders Guide and/or contact Ditmas Management.
