UPPER EAST SIDE?Check out some new renderings of the last available penthouse at Harry Macklowe's UES conversion 150 East 72nd Street. The first PH, which asked $10M, is in contract, while the four-bedroom, 6.5-bath north penthouse pictured above (full listing here) has a roof deck two-thirds the size of the interior space and wants $15.5 million. Did anyone say floorplan porn (warning: PDF!)? The conversion includes 22 "sumptuously sized" units, with just four available on StreetEasy. Relatedly, the building just hit two milestones: 50 percent sold and $100 million in total sales. [CurbedWire Inbox; previously]
THE BRONX?This morning, the city broke ground on a new housing project for seniors and formerly homeless New Yorkers funded in part by Medicaid. Called Boston Road, it'll have 154 studios and is the first initiative meant to cut health care costs by providing not only affordable apartments but also certain support services, all within the confines of the building. Amenities include a landscaped terrace, a green roof, recreational space, an exercise room, and a computer lab. This is the first building of its type, but the bigger plan it's kicking off funnels $46.7 million towards 12 new buildings over the next 24 to 36 months. Take a look.
