Create and thrive in this triplex maisonette, set in an historic loft building at White Street and Cortlandt Alley. Separate street-front and condominium entrances allow for a seamless use as a flexible live/work space. Grand double doors open to a soaring front space with 18-foot ceilings and the feel of a contemporary art gallery, pleasantly north-lit by the etched-glazed doors and twin oversize picture windows. A striking front stairway connects to a bedroom/home office upstairs and an expansive lower level with high ceilings. A cozy dining area or additional gallery complete the home's front section. The second entrance allows private access via the Condominium's common space. Enormous double-height Living room with south facing windows opens to a second three-story rear stairway, with access to both the private outdoor terrace and the lower level's three distinct spaces. A double-height kitchen with granite worktops, bar seating and stainless appliances sits at the heart of the main floor. In its current configuration, 1W accommodates flexible living arrangements, with 3 windowed bedrooms, 2 upper level rooms, three full bathrooms, one powder and large laundry room.

After nearly 150 years as commercial lofts for various garment makers and businesses, 79 and 81 White were joined as a single boutique luxury condominium in 2006. Poised at the crossroads of Tribeca, Soho, Chinatown and Little Italy, an area that is rapidly becoming the most vibrant new gallery districts in New York City. Close to world-class shopping, Michelin-starred restaurants, and the best of downtown living. This utterly uniquely triplex feels like its own industrial townhouse, ready to be tailored the needs of its next owners.
