CityRealty's Q4 2021 Manhattan Residential Market Report CityRealty's Q4 2021 Manhattan Residential Market Report
The Manhattan residential market ended 2021 on a high note as the fourth quarter posted the highest total dollar amount of residential sales on record. The average sale price for Manhattan* apartments rose 8% when compared to the fourth quarter of 2020. The average sale price for all residential units, excluding townhouses, was $2.05 million, up from $1.89 million in Q4 2020. The average sale price of a condo was $2.88 million and the average price of a co-op was $1.32 million.
Year-over-year, the count of Manhattan apartment deals was up a remarkable 94%, with 3,945 deals this quarter compared to the 2,041 deals during the more dismal days of the pandemic. In total, there were 1,844 condo sales, 2,013 co-op sales, and 83 condop sales.

In the fourth quarter of 2021, there were $5.3 billion in condo sales in Manhattan, down 7% since the record-breaking 3rd quarter and up 108% year-over-year. The average condo PPSF during the approximately 90-day period was $1,806, up 3% since the third quarter and up 7% from the same quarterly period in 2020. Condo prices are now on par with pre-pandemic figures but 6% below 2016's record prices. With 1,844 condo transactions, Q4 2021 was the highest number of fourth-quarter deals on record.

Top Residential Sales of Q4 2021

Reflecting a significant departure from past quarters, in Q4 2021, more than half of the 30 priciest apartment deals came from downtown condo buildings instead of from high-rises overlooking Central Park. The biggest sale was a triplex penthouse at 443 Greenwich Street in TriBeCa sold by British racecar driver and Formula One champion, Lewis Hamilton. Measuring nearly 9,000 square feet, the three-floor home has six bedrooms, up to 20’ soaring ceilings, multiple terraces, two dedicated parking spaces, and an outdoor plunge pool.
The second-highest sale came in from a triplex penthouse atop SoHo's Tulip Building at 421 Broome Street. The sprawling 8,000-square-foot home was the highest price ever paid for an apartment in SoHo, a record the same unit set in October 2020. November 2021's $49 million sale was 40 percent higher than the $35 million price it sold for a year earlier. According to the New York Times, former owner David Matlin and his wife, Lisa Matlin, spent four years gut-renovating the unit into a vertical mansion.
Rounding out the top three is another downtown penthouse, this time atop the Herzog de Meuron-designed 56 Leonard Street in Tribeca. Closed in November for $45 million, the duplex spans nearly 7,800 square feet and has four bedrooms, several terraces, and floor-to-ceiling windows with breathtaking views of the city, river, and harbor.

Top-Selling Buildings of Q4 2021

In Q4 2021, there were 3,945 residential condo, co-op, and condop deals aggregating to $8.1 billion, up a significant 94% Y-O-Y. The residential building that tallied the most sales by total dollar amount was the newly-opened High Line condo Lantern House which saw $157 million worth of deals across 43 deals. Celebrity magnet 443 Greenwich Street and the world's tallest residential Central Park Tower rounded out the top three. With few remaining availabilities, 220 Central Park South fell to number 10 but continued to garner the highest price/ft2 overall.
