From November 7-13, 2021, a total of 299 condo, co-op, and condop sales closed in Manhattan, aggregating to a total of $587,211,863 and showing a climb from last week, when no sales were recorded on the city's Election Day holiday. The 136 condo sales recorded came to a median price of $1.78 million, or $1,626 per square foot. The 155 co-op sales came to a median price of $752,500.
The past week was a triumphant one for the "Jenga tower" at 56 Leonard Street, where not one but two penthouses had the top sales of the week. #PH60, a 5-bedroom, 5.5-bath measuring 7,779 interior square feet and 1,252 exterior square feet, closed for $45 million. This is $5 million below the ask of $50 million that would have made it the most expensive Downtown penthouse sale of the past year. Listing agent Clayton Orrigo of Compass told The Real Deal that this may still be the most expensive downtown sale of 2021, but offered no further comment. The buyer and seller were not identified.

A few floors down, the 5-bedroom, 5-bath #PH58 closed for $30,125,000. This price is 12.7 percent below the last asking price of $34.5 million, but above the $26,781,102 that seller Leon Shaulov, founder of hedge fund Maplelane Capital, purchased it for in 2017. This penthouse measures 5,489 interior square feet and 745 square feet of private outdoor terraces.
The past week's top sale outside of 56 Leonard Street took place at ABI Chelsea, where a penthouse closed for $20 million, or 20 percent below the last listed price of $25 million. The four-bedroom, 4.5-bath home measures 3,794 interior square feet and 1,301 square feet of private outdoor space, including a rooftop terrace with a private pool and views of the High Line and Manhattan skyline.

On the luxury contracts side, a total of 60 contracts priced at $4 million and up were signed from November 8-14, 2021. Not only is this the largest total of the year, but it also has the highest asking price sales volume of 2021 at a whopping $553,869,000. Olshan Realty's market report says that this is the strongest week for the luxury market since December 16-23, 2013, when 72 deals were signed with a total asking price volume of $576,185,000.
The top contract of the past week took place at 15 Central Park West, where #9A was asking $35 million. The apartment was owned by Andrea Kerzner, co-founder of non-profit Lalela and co-founder of Lekka Burger, a vegan burger restaurant in Tribeca. Ms. Kerzner bought the apartment from the sponsor for $18,033,027 in 2008 and had it renovated by acclaimed designer Jeffrey Beers. The buyer was not identified, nor were Ms. Kerzner's reasons for selling the apartment.
Nipping closely at its heels was the penthouse at 1010 Park Avenue, which was asking $34.955 million in a reduction from the offering plan price of $50 million. This was the last unit to sell in the building, which rose beside the landmarked Park Avenue Christian Church. CityRealty data shows that closings in the building have come in at asking price and at an average of $3,018 per square foot.

Around the corner from 1010 Park Avenue, The Bellemont put on a strong showing one week after its massive $66.5 million contract. Apartment 8, a full-floor five-bedroom unit, is in the top five contracts with an asking price of $19.05 million. It was closely trailed by unit #4/5, a corner five-bedroom duplex with 13-foot ceilings and an asking price of $16.95 million.

Offered for sale for the first time together are two sophisticated and landmarked townhouses designed by the renowned architectural firm of Delano & Aldrich, and once owned by prominent businessmen George F. Baker, Jr. (who built the houses in 1929 and 1931) and later by DLJ co-founder, Richard H. Jenrette, the noted preservationist. Delano & Aldrich were the leading architects for New York's elite during the first three decades of the 20th century, including the Rockefellers, Vanderbilts, Astors, and Whitneys. Intact urban residences by the firm are exceedingly rare, many that survive having been converted to institutional use.

Perfectly preserved, with spectacular proportions and original architectural details, fixtures and fittings, the houses include a double-height five-car parking garage - one of the largest private residential garages in the city - a majestic garden-facing classical colonnade, and elegant interior details like a stunning round staircase and an oval dining room.

67 and 69 East 93rd Street capture the essence of a timeless era and a gracious urban lifestyle. This is the rarest opportunity to purchase an important part of New York City's architectural and social history - and yet, the houses together are as relevant and desirable to a twenty-first century buyer wanting the finest New York City residence, as they were to the original family that built them.
