Silverstein Properties unveiled details about its Riverside Center project, which has a “poor door,” or a separate entrance for tenants residing in the affordable units in the building.

Silverstein, which is developing the project with El Ad Properties, said at a Community Board 7 meeting on Wednesday that the buildings at 10 Freedom Place and 1 West End Avenue will be loaded with amenities for all residents. The Freedom Place portion will be eight stories and hold 116 affordable units. Above that component is 1 West End Avenue, which will rise 41 stories and hold 247 market-rate units. The site is located between West 60th and West 61st streets.

“There’s no cheaping out on materials,” Janno Lieber, a development executive at Silverstein, told the board, as reported by DNAinfo. “There’s no sense that you’re in other than a world-class building.”

In the affordable section, one-bedrooms will average 900 square feet and two-bedrooms will average 1,100 square feet. Those rentals will ask between $800 and $1,400 per month. Affordable tenants will share a 12,000-square-foot roof deck and a 3,000-square-foot courtyard with market-rate tenants, but will not have access to the pool, the website said.

Gary Barnett’s Extell Development has received criticism for its use of the “poor door” at 40 Riverside Boulevard, as previously reported. [DNAinfo]Mark Maurer
