NEW YORK (CBSNewYork/AP) — A developer and city officials say some changes have been negotiated in a plan for a so-called “poor door” for less-affluent residents of a Riverside Boulevard development.
People who live in the pricey condos at 40 Riverside Blvd. will still enter through the front lobby.
But The Wall Street Journal says residents of the affordable portion will now get shared access to a courtyard and a roof deck facing the Hudson River.
Executives from developer Larry Silverstein’s company and its partner say they’ll position that entrance to face a planned public park.
It also will feature custom wood and a lobby with a glass facade.
