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.
