We've been all up in the condo conversion of the pre-war Devonshire House at East 10th Street and University Place, but it seems like all anybody wants to talk about are the penthouses. So here's something to chew on: A peek into the the build-out of the 1929 Emery Roth building's newly configured $12.5 million lower penthouse. The 4,137-square-foot duplex is being combined from six original apartments?two studios made up the "Great Room" on the upper floor , and four apartments got all smashed up for the main living spaces?and the walls only recently came tumbling down.
We'll be checking in along the way as construction progresses, or as long as building reps will have us (once the place goes into contract the door will likely be slammed in our faces). Check out the cool restructoporn in the photo gallery above, and the floorplan for the finished product is below.
