With more than nine billion dollars in apartment transactions projected, the second quarter of 2022 is expected to be Manhattan's* strongest second quarter on record despite global economic and political uncertainty and rising interest rates. As a result of a surging ultraluxury market, the average price paid for a Manhattan apartment is nearing the record figures of early 2019 and 2017.
While transaction volume declined 11% year-over-year (Y-O-Y), pent-up demand, low inventory, and a limited number of new development launches have caused prices to rise. The average sale price for all residential units, excluding townhouses, stood at $2.19 million, up 9% from $2.0 million in Q2 2021, and up 5% from the preceding quarter. The average sale price of a condo was $3.1 million and the average sale price of a co-op was $1.43 million.



In Q2 2022, there were 3,702 residential condo, co-op, and condop deals as of July 14, 2022. Due to the lag in closings recorded by the NYC Department of Finance, we project there will be approximately 4,115 closings for the quarter aggregating to $9 billion worth of transactions. This total will be 9% higher than Q2 2021 and 18% higher than Q1 2022.




The residential building that accrued the most sales in the second quarter of 2022 was NoMad's tallest building, Madison House, which had $212 million worth of closings across 77 deals. Buildings within reach of Central Park dominated the list of priciest individual sales. Aside from Billionaires' Row developments such as Aman New York Residences, 432 Park Avenue, and 53W53; traditionally-inspired Upper East Side developments also made a strong showing. The only downtown apartments to make the list came in from the Woolworth Tower, Lantern House, The Greenwich Lane, and the Puck Penthouses.


Just as the quarter was drawing to a close, the estate of Microsoft co-founder Paul Allen sold a penthouse and a second unit on a lower floor at 4 East 66th Street for $101 million. The Wall Street Journal announced the sale and noted that if counted as one property, it is the most expensive co-op sale in New York history, beating out the 2015 record of $77.5 million for an apartment at 834 Fifth Avenue on the next block.
Records show that Mr. Allen bought the penthouse for $25 million in 2011, but it is not clear when he purchased the other unit (presumably used as a staff or guest apartment) or for how much. The buyer made the purchase under a Delaware-based limited liability company and was not identified. Other notable residents of the James E.R. Carpenter-designed building have included investor J. Christopher Flowers, financier Bernard Baruch, aviator Charles Lindbergh, and investor/philanthropist Sid Bass.
The top contract-signing of the quarter was from an undisclosed buyer of an 8,000-square-foot penthouse at 432 Park Avenue. The second-highest deal was a 7-bed/8.5-bath penthouse in The Bellemont, which is still under construction. Rounding out the top three was a signed and closed deal at the Jean Nouvel-designed 53W53 where Alex Blavatnik purchased a penthouse near the top of the building.
