The building was designed by Montrose Morris and built by developer Louis F. Seitz in 1889-90. It is an early example in the United States of a multiple-family building designed with large apartments for affluent tenants. The building, which features six towers and loggias, gables, arcades and elaborate terracotta decorations is across Nostrand Avenue from the architecturally notable Girls High School.

The Alhambra was landmarked by the New York City Landmarks Preservation Commission in 1986.
