Nearly two years ago, developer Harry Macklowe closed on a 34-unit rental apartment building at 150 East 72nd Street for $70 million, with the intention to convert the building into condominiums. Now the first of the building’s new units have officially hit the market, Curbed reported. So far, the listings range from $6.03 million to $13.5 million in the 100-year-old Lenox Hill building, originally designed by Schwartz & Gross in 1913 and most recently renovated by Handel Architects and Moed de Armas & Shannon Architects.

The least expensive unit is a 2,316-square-foot, three-bedroom apartment. The building’s priciest unit is the building’s sole five-bedroom apartment, which measures 4,482 square feet.  Macklowe Properties is handling marketing. [Curbed] –Christopher Cameron
