On the contracts side, a total of 46 luxury contracts priced at $4 million and up were signed from October 4-11, 2021. Olshan Realty's market report notes that this is more than double the previous week's total and the highest total since the week of April 19-25, when 56 contracts were signed. This week's total asking price sales volume came to $350,264,490, and the contracts comprised 32 condos, seven co-ops, and seven townhouses.

The top contract of the week was a townhouse at 27 East 11th Street asking $29,995,000. The house dates back to the 1840s and was the birthplace of Janet Travell, who was elected the first female White House physician. Since then, the front facade has been restored to its original glory, and the interiors have been updated with a Savant smart home system, a state-of-the-art kitchen, and a temperature-controlled wine cellar. Further uptown, the Upper East Side townhouse where Gwyneth Paltrow grew up entered contract with an asking price of $14,500,000, down $1 million from its original asking price when it was listed in November 2020.

The top apartment contract of the past week took place at ABI Chelsea, where a triplex penthouse was asking $22,750,000, a small reduction from the $25 million it was listed for in November 2019. The four-bedroom, three full bath, and two half bath condo measures 3,794 interior square feet and 1,301 square feet of private outdoor space. It was a good week for West Side condos - apartments at 15 Central Park West and One Waterline Square rounded out the top five.
