Rendering of The Bellemont at 1165 Madison Avenue and Google CEO Eric Schmidt and his new NoHo purchase at 25 Bond Street Rendering of The Bellemont at 1165 Madison Avenue and Google CEO Eric Schmidt and his new NoHo purchase at 25 Bond Street
From October 31 to November 6, 2021, a total of 242 condo, co-op, and condop sales were recorded in Manhattan, coming to an aggregated total of $444.46 million and a median price of $991K. While this appears to show a dramatic drop from last week's total of 516 sales at $896.3 million, we should note that this appears to be due to the city's Election Day holiday on Tuesday, November 2 - no deals were recorded that day. The 102 condo deals came to a median price of $1.775 million, or $1,450 per square foot. The 131 co-op deals came to a median price of $775K.
The top sale of the week took place at 25 Bond Street in Noho, where a sprawling four-bedroom unit closed for $24,611,000, or 10.5 percent below the last listing price of $27.5 million. The New York Post reported on the sale and identified the buyer as former Google CEO Eric Schmidt, who purchased it as an investment property.

Mr. Schmidt bought the apartment from former Goldman Sachs executive Michael Daffey, who was a key player in the deal to construct the building in 2005. Mr. Daffey listed the apartment after buying an Upper East Side townhouse linked to Jeffery Epstein. The townhouse had a rich history before Mr. Epstein ever owned it, and Mr. Daffey is now planning an extensive renovation, both "spiritually and physically."
Further uptown, it was a good week for Waterline Square with two sales in the top five: A penthouse unit at Two Waterline Square closed for $15,150,573, and another high-floor home in the Kohn Pedersen Fox-designed building closed for $9,560,000. Additionally, at One Waterline Square, a condo measuring over 2,000 square feet closed for $5,615,000.

November 2021 opened with 46 luxury contracts ($4 million and up) signed in Manhattan. According to Olshan Realty’s market report, this is one fewer than last week, but nevertheless the fifth week in a row of 40 or more deals. The total weekly asking price sales volume came to $414,470,000.
Nine of the past week’s top ten contracts took place on the Upper East Side, and the top contract by far was #PHC/D, asking $66.5 million, at The Bellemont, a new 12-unit condominium developed by Naftali Group, designed by Robert A.M. Stern, and located at 1165 Madison Avenue. The Wall Street Journal announced the deal and noted that the buyer, identified only as a New Yorker who made the purchase off floor plans, is paying slightly more than the asking prices of $39.65 million for a seven-bedroom penthouse and $26.5 million for a four-bedroom penthouse for the developer to deliver a combined unit. This will result in a four-story apartment with 13,011 interior square feet, its own interior elevator, and eight private terraces totaling 2,350 exterior square feet. This is not the most expensive Upper East Side deal above 59th Street - the 2015 sale of a co-op at 834 Fifth Avenue for $77.5 million still holds that distinction - but it’s up there.

1165 Madison Avenue
The Bellemont features a classically inspired design, limestone facade, and dramatically scaled windows. All apartments feature interiors by Achille Salvagni, loft-like ceilings, high moldings, and large-scale polished doors. Residential amenities include a sophisticated attended lobby, a holistic fitness center, a regulation squash court, a state-of-the-art screening room, a well-thought children’s playroom, and a rooftop terrace with spectacular views of Central Park. The building is half a block from Central Park and close to Museum Mile, Madison Avenue shopping, and fine dining. Families will also appreciate the close proximity to top schools like The Dalton School, Spence School, Regis High School, and Saint David’s School.
Naftali Group’s recent Upper East Side condo, The Benson, quickly sold out earlier this year, and The Bellemont appears poised to follow suit. Apartment 5S entered contract last week with an asking price of $11.25 million, and another unit in the building is in contract with an ask of $8.6 million. Closings are expected to commence at the end of 2022.

Two apartments tied for the second-highest contract of the past week with asking prices of $27 million. One of these took place a few blocks south of The Bellemont at 200 East 83rd Street, another Robert A.M. Stern design, where #PHA entered contract. The 5,835-square foot condo features six bedrooms, seven baths, and a 40-foot private loggia with glimpses of Central Park. This is another Upper East Side condo off to a strong start: Prior to the official sales launch, 30 percent of the 86 units in the building were already in contract. Closings are estimated to begin in the second quarter of 2022.
The other unit asking $27 million was the ninth floor at 67 Vestry Street, a 5,794-square-foot six-bedroom, 5.5-bath condo and the one downtown unit in the top 10 contracts. Andy Warhol was among the artists who lived in the loft building when it was the creative epicenter of Tribeca, and it has since been converted to luxury condos with expansive living space, high-end finishes, and hotel-caliber amenities. This comes less than four months after a penthouse in the building entered contract with a $45 million ask, and a small handful of current availabilities starts at $7.85 million. Occupancy is estimated for spring 2022.
