From September 26-October 2, 2021, a total of 342 Manhattan condo, co-op, and condop sales were recorded at an aggregate price of $641,884,111. The 150 condo sales came to a median price of $1.6 million, or $1,523 per square foot. The 180 co-op sales recorded a median price of $770K.

The top sale of the past week was a full-floor sponsor unit at Central Park Tower with four bedrooms, a 2,000-square-foot private terrace, and a private outdoor pool that closed for $50,021,000. The Real Deal broke the news of the sale, noting that it closed for nearly 50 percent below its original asking price of $95 million. However, a spokesperson for Extell, the building's developer, said in a statement, "The unit sold for approximately $7,000 per square foot...and we are not unhappy with the price." Indeed, over the past week, there was much for Extell to be happy about - three units at Central Park Tower were in the top 10 sales, trailed by a $5.34 million sale at One Manhattan Square.

Meanwhile, from September 27-October 3, 2021, 22 luxury contracts (priced at $4 million and up) were signed in Manhattan. This is five fewer than last week, and Olshan Realty's market report speculates that a market cooldown may be inevitable in the fourth quarter of 2021. The first three quarters yielded a whopping 1,329 contracts, more than twice the total of the entire year of 2020.

While condo contracts outnumbered those for co-ops 14-4, a six-bedroom duplex at 720 Park Avenue, a Rosario Candela-designed cooperative, claimed the week's top contract with an asking price of $15.9 million (down from its October 2019 listing price of $22 million). The buyer was not identified, but is clearly wealthy: The building does not allow financing.

The top condo contract was signed at celebrity favorite 443 Greenwich Avenue with an asking price of $12.995 million. The buyer and seller have not yet been identified, but we do know that it sold within five weeks of listing.

The mansion has 3 exposures and is very light and bright. It is surrounded by approximately 2,700 square feet of outdoor garden, terraces and Juliette balconies. With its extraordinary width and depth, all the main living areas are on 4 floors instead of 5 or 6 as would be typical of a narrower townhouse. And also unlike traditional townhouses, the living spaces begin on the second floor, affording a lighter and more elevated living experience. It has a commercial grade elevator large enough to quickly whisk many guests at a time from the entrance level all the way to the rooftop terrace and which also goes to the lower level where you'll find the pool and fitness center.
