It's a big day for
boutique expensive new projects on the Upper East Side. Where there once were townhouses, now there will be this. Spruce Capital Partners' 151 East 78th Street will rise 16 stories and house just 14 apartments. First came a facade rendering, then some signage, but all that's in the past because now there's a teaser site and all-new images of the updated facade, interiors, and outdoor spaces.
Arch Digest-approved UES native Peter Pennoyer is the architect and is also doing the interiors. This is his first condo project, and it's decidedly prewar-looking (which is a trend these days, don'tcha know) with brick detailing, contrasting limestone, and Juliet balconies. The Times has more details, including the pricing of these three- to six-bedroom
palaces homes: floor-through units start at $10 million, while the penthouses will start in the upper $20 millions. There's also a maisonette. All will range from 3,000 to 7,000 square feet in size. Amenities include a doorman, landscaped garden, resident library, fitness studio, private storage, bike room, and a live-in resident manager. Sales will kick off this month, and closings are slated to begin in December of 2015.
