The Cortland’s handsome design is rooted in the vernacular of the New York cityscape. It is a single building with distinctive façades, each subtly different in character yet working together beautifully.
LaSalle limestone stonework, molded brickwork, and metal rivet detailing reflect the industrial charm of the neighborhood, whereas the generous bay windows offer long city and river views. The lightness of the architecture belies a solidity that comes from more than a million hand-laid bricks in a distinctive five-color blend. This is an important new building for West Chelsea, with a strong presence on the skyline and streetscape.
A sense of grandeur is evident from the very moment residents arrive. Step in from the buzzing street and you enter an oasis of calm: the perfect scene-setter for the beauty and elegance to come.
