The owner of 286 Lenox Avenue is looking to make changes to the residences in the building where the iconic Lenox Lounge closed its doors two years ago.

Owner Ricky Edmonds is applying for a certificate of no harassment, Crain’s reported, to try to certify that he didn’t harass any tenants or force them to move out — by turning off heat or hot water, for example — at any point over the last three years.

Edmonds wants to make changes to the building’s single-room occupancy units, but it’s still unclear what his exact plans are.

“What we see usually in SROs is that the owner is going to combine the units to create larger units,” Marti Weithman of the SRO Law Project told Crain’s.

Two years ago, Lenox Lounge moved two blocks north after a rent dispute. [Crain’s] — Claire Moses
