150 east 72nd outside

150 East 72nd Street, the stately Macklowe Properties conversion in the Upper East Side, is over 50 percent sold.

The 100-year-old building, redesigned by Handel Architects and Moed de Armas & Shannon, is nearing completion; occupancy is slated for this summer. The building offers three- to four-bedroom residences, many with wood-burning fireplaces, libraries and staff rooms, because of course.

The condominiums have large living and dining rooms, solid white oak floors, 10-foot ceilings, central air conditioning, custom Poliform closets and eat-in kitchens with marble countertops, custom wood cabinetry, Miele appliances and chrome fixtures. Master bathrooms are fitted with marble slab floors walls and countertops, custom vanities and a freestanding bathtub that looks like a poem.

Amenities include a fitness center, children’s playroom and multipurpose room. With two apartments per floor, residents step directly into their homes from private elevator landings. The new lobby, designed by Moed de Armas & Shannon Architects, is decked out with a patterned nickel silver portal, restored granite entry and flooring made of the same Tennessee marble used to build Grand Central Terminal.

Want to get into the nitty-historical-marble-gritty of the conversion? We interviewed Malay Shah of Handel Architects and Dan Shannon of Moed de Armas & Shannon, who describe the design process much more eloquently than we could.
