150 East 72nd Street is an iconic pre-war building located in the Upper East Side. The exterior has remained unchanged since its completion but in 2013 it was converted into a condominium and remodeled by Harry Macklowe. The changes were designed by Handel Architects and Moed de Armas & Shannon Architects.
There were a few interested parties before Macklowe purchased the building such as Arsenal Holdings. Initially the building held thirty four rental units but by the end of the remodeling there were twenty two new condods .
