The Manhattan luxury market saw 24 contracts signed last week. The Manhattan luxury market saw 24 contracts signed last week.
Olshan Realty's rundown of priciest contracts signed last week shows old school glamour is just as relevant as the city's contemporary condos. A sprawling $34 million penthouse duplex (a price reduction of $1 million) at the iconic landmark The Plaza Hotel took the number one spot and a nearby full-floor pre-war residence asking $22 million (down from $24 million) at 810 Fifth Avenue came in second. Both were built in the early 1900s and offer residents direct views of Central Park – a feature that will never go out of style. An even pricier listing at The Plaza is asking $50 million and just so happens to be fashion designer Tommy Hilfiger's pad, which he's been trying to sell since 2013.

In total, 24 luxury contracts were signed at $4 million and above in Manhattan, 8 of which were asking $10 million or more. It comes as no surprise that more than half of the deals come from Downtown, as that encompasses development-heavy neighborhoods like Tribeca, Greenwich Village, and Flatiron.
