CityRealty's Q1 2022 Quarterly Manhattan Residential Market Report CityRealty's Q1 2022 Quarterly Manhattan Residential Market Report
With low inventory and a return of optimism for the city, Manhattan saw the average sale price paid for an apartment jump 22% in the first quarter of 2022 compared to the first quarter of 2021. The average sale price for all residential units, excluding townhouses, ticked up markedly to $2.1 million, up from $1.7 million in Q1 2021.

The average sale price of a condo was $2.92 million and the average price paid for a co-op was $1.36 million.

Year-over-year, the count of Manhattan transactions was up 34%, with 3,767 deals this past quarter compared to the 2,622 deals over the same period in 2021. However, quarter-over-quarter, the total number of deals fell 10% and prices were only up by 1%.

In Q1 2022, there were 3,612 residential condo, co-op, and condop deals aggregating to $7.5 billion, up a significant 68% year-over-year in total dollar amount of sales.

Manhattan Condo Sales

In Q1 2022, there were $4.8 billion in condo sales in Manhattan, down 17% since the record-breaking Q4 2021 but up 73% year-over-year. The average condo price/ft2 during the approximately 90-day period was $1,836, up 2% since the fourth quarter of last year and up 16% from the same quarterly period in 2021. So far in 2022, condo sale prices are 3% below the pre-pandemic figures of 2019, With 1,643 condo transactions, Q1 2022 was the highest number of first-quarter deals since 2008.

Manhattan's Priciest Sales of Q1 2022

In contrast to Q4 2021, when more than half of the 30 priciest sales were in downtown condos, Q1 2022 saw the revival of sales in Billionaires' Row and Upper East Side Gold Coast buildings. Additionally, 16 of the top 30 transactions were sponsor sales in new development condos. All but one of the top 30 deals were in buildings finished or converted within the last 20 years.

The most expensive sale was a full floor on the 125th floor of Central Park Tower on Billionaires Row. The deal was also the priciest sale on a per square foot basis, coming in at $7,009/ft2. The buyer of the sponsor 5-bedroom/5.5-bath spread was not disclosed.

The second-priciest deal of the quarter came from a capacious 8,386-square-foot duplex at The Benson. The newly-finished building is the Upper East Side's first new condo development on Madison Avenue in more than 25 years. Steered by the Naftali Group, the building witnessed incredible sales velocity while in construction, signing nearly $100 million in contracts in less than 60 days.

Manhattan's Top-Selling Buildings

The residential building that accrued the most sales in Q1 2022 by total dollar amount was the newly-finished Upper West Side condo tower 200 Amsterdam which saw $194 million worth of closings across 26 deals. The Benson, a boutique condo on the Upper East Side by the Naftali Group, and Central Park Tower, the world's tallest residential building, rounded out the top three. As we approach the end of the second quarter, find below the table of top Q1 sales, a list of the top-selling residential buildings of 2022 so far.
