150 East 72nd full lobby

150 East 72nd Street by Macklowe Properties has always been artful; the 12-story, 22-unit conversion by Handel Architects and Moed de Armas & Shannon has referenced Warhol, Lichtenstein and Hockney in its roomy interiors. But this new lobby rendering on the official site takes the art-history party to a higher, 15th-century Florentine level.

Available units range from a 2,316-square-foot three-bedroom asking $6.03 million to a 3,543-square-foot four-bedroom asking $11.5 million. The apartments have private elevator lounges, windowed eat-in kitchens with stainless steel Miele appliances, Italian marble bathrooms and custom Poliform closets in the bedrooms.

The historically hot building, first completed in 1912, got a revamp for its 100th birthday — here’s the early 1900s “before”:

Last note: that lobby painting is a detail from Benozzo Gozzoli’s “Journey of the Magi” fresco, located in the Palazzo Medici-Riccardi in Florence. The Upper East Side: all Medici, all class.
