East 76th Street is no stranger to mansion renovations, with the Chetrit Group's mcmansions underway at 110-120 East 76th Street and a facade makeover at number 12. Three makes a trend, so might we suggest 15 East 76th Street? The house has actually been on the market since March 2010, when it was asking $22.5 million, and since then its price has gone down and up again, landing at $18 million late last week. Of course, that's in its current set-up as six apartments (at least one of which was renting for $6,000/month). Aspiring mansion owners will have to boot the tenants out and get renovating.
