From May 23-29, a total of 376 condo, co-op, and condop sales were recorded in Manhattan with an aggregate price of $666,884,763, making it the best week of recorded sales in at least two years. The 166 condo sales came to a median price of $1,765,277, or $1,462 per square foot. The median price of the 207 co-op sales was $800K.

The top sale of the past week was an apartment at The Park Laurel that sold for $16.8 million. This is 41.9 percent less than its last asking price of $28.9 million, and roughly half the $33.5 million price paid by its previous owner, Riza Aziz, a producer on The Wolf of Wall Street and son of a former Malaysian prime minister. The condo was allegedly purchased with funds embezzled from a Malaysian sovereign wealth fund; to avoid criminal charges, Mr. Aziz agreed to forfeit $60 million worth of assets, the condo among them. U.S. Marshals closed the deal on May 27.

Trailing close behind was an apartment at 220 Central Park South, the supertall that The Real Deal describes as "the clear heir to 15 Central Park West as the city’s new alpha residence." Apartment 29B closed for $16,076,813.

The top apartment deal was #PH10B at 90 Morton Street, which had an asking price of $17.7 million. The Hudson Square printing house turned luxury condo was one of the best-selling buildings of Q1 2021, and saw many high-priced sales and deals before that.
