The gleaming high rise at Elad and Silverstein’s One West End Avenue is edging toward completion, and predictably, its units are not going cheap: according to StreetEasy, apartments are starting at $1.52 million and going all the way up to $21 million.
But there is hope yet: starting tomorrow, aspiring Upper West Siders who meet specific income requirements can apply for one of the Pelli-Clarke-Pelli-designed project’s 116 "affordable" apartments. (h/t 6sqft) Technically, the affordable units are in their own separate building, an eight-story stone structure underneath the 41-story "floating glass tower" that houses the million dollar listings.
You won’t exactly be hobnobbing with the market-rate residents, though; as with its neighbor, the affordable units have their own separate address, 10 Freedom Place, which served by its own separate entrance. (On the bright side, it’s supposed to be a really, really nice separate entrance?) The below-market apartments will also have access to a host of (separate, obviously) amenities, including a fitness center, bike storage, a laundry room. In an unexpected twist, the rooftop courtyard will be shared by tenants of all income levels.
Affordable rental units range from $833/month for single-occupancy studios, earmarked for prospective tenants making between $29,898 and $38,100 annually, to $1,458/month two-bedrooms, which require a minimum annual income of $51,395 and $72,480 for a family of four. Applications are due by November 1; the full details are here.
