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.READ MORE: NYPD: Man Shot Inside Union Square Subway Station
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.
