A tipster passed along the floorplans for the two 6,000+-square-foot triplex penthouses (and hey, don't forget the 2,000-square-foot terraces) atop the tony Marquand conversion. Penthouse East, with six bedrooms and a third-floor library, is asking $43 million. Meanwhile, 7BR Penthouse West wants $46 million, likely because of the bigger layout and its Central Park views. The plans reveal an almost uncountable number of bathrooms and half-baths, wood-burning fireplaces that subdivide generous living spaces, expansive terraces with outdoor kitchens, and master suites with spacious his and hers bathrooms and dressing rooms. Skylights perforate the top floors, which also hold more outdoor space. They haven't yet hit the market. The Upper East Side rental, converted to condos this year by HFZ Capital, has a cool backstory; meanwhile, architect and designer Lee Mindel meticulously selected materials for the pricey residences that aim to live up to its 130-year history.
