Live the romance
of the loft

Nestled along Tribeca’s most hidden street

Situated on one of Tribeca’s most secret and private streets, Six Cortlandt Alley is an Italianate building that dates back to the mid 1800’s. The alleyway, named after the once prominent Van Cortlandt family, is reminiscent of a mews in London—providing future residents a quiet and discreet location to come and go from their homes. 

Six Cortlandt Alley has been converted into three authentic lofts and two grand penthouses with substantial private outdoor space. The six existing stories will be crowned by a contemporary two-story glass addition. This one-of-a-kind penthouse will command substantial outdoor space, creating a townhouse-like residence perched atop the building.

The building’s historic fabric is evident both outside and within the condominium. Its two distinct facades, one clad in marble and the other in red brick, have been painstakingly revived by historic restoration experts. 

Upon entering the residential lobby, residents are  greeted with reclaimed heart pine  from the building’s  160 year-old former floor joists, exposed brick walls, and other elements that carry their way up into the residences. 



Six Cortlandt Alley offers a full suite of amenities, balancing the benefits of boutique living with the luxuries of a full-service property.  Six Cortlandt Alley’s lobby and concourse levels will come furnished with a doorman, fitness center, resident’s lounge, and private storage units—balancing the benefits of boutique living with the amenities of a full-service property

    Lasting only three short blocks, Cortlandt Alley is one of Tribeca’s smallest and most hidden streets, and one of the condominium’s most distinguishing benefits. The alley is a “downtown” version of a motor-court, providing residents and their guests with a private means of coming and going that is away from the bustle of Manhattan. Cars can pick up and drop off directly in front of the building’s entrance with little-to-no traffic or pedestrian interaction.

    Six Cortlandt Alley’s life has spanned three different centuries, transitioning through a litany of fascinating uses. During the mid 1800’s, the building served as the showroom for famed rococo- furniture designer John Henry Belter. It would then operate as a feather exchange in the latter part of the century, as well as a home to the Coraline Corset.

    Produced by a company called Werner, the Coraline Corset was ranked in its time by Harper’s Bazaar as one of the top four corsets in the United States. Six Cortlandt Alley would last play home to Diebold—where its now-antique safes were once stored.

    The alley and immediate-surrounding area also carry a substantive history, particularly within the art community. Famous artists like Julian Schnabel, Keith Haring, David Salle, Barbara Kruger, and Ross Bleckner all worked in studios on or near Cortlandt Alley.

    Bleckner once owned 7 Cortlandt Alley, which is located directly across the street from our lobby entrance. 7 Cortlandt Alley was transformed into the home of the Mudd Club, an avant-garde nightlife venue that operated from 1978 to 1983. The club was a favorite haunt of Andy Warhol, and was frequented by the likes of Madonna, David Bowie, Betsey Johnson, and Jean-Michel Basquiat.
