Manhattan Sales:

  • For the week ending November 4, 2022, $533,516,784 worth of transactions across 278 condo, condop, and cooperative deals were recorded
  • 124 condo sales came to an aggregate price of $353,836,414
  • Seven condop sales came to an aggregate price of $11,427,500
  • 147 co-op sales came to an aggregate price of $168,252,750

The top sale of the past week was also one of the top sales of the year: At 220 Central Park South, home of the country's most expensive home sale, a full-floor penthouse sold for a whopping $72,000,000. The Wall Street Journal notes that the unit was not officially on the market, and that the unidentified seller also paid $3,000,000 for a one-bedroom unit on a lower floor, presumably to be used as a staff or guest apartment.

One block east, a penthouse unit at 111 West 57th Street, the city's skinniest skyscraper and one of its tallest, closed for $50,518,750. This comes in 11.4% below the last listed price of $57,000,000, but was nevertheless good enough for the second-highest sale of the past week.
The top sale not located on Billionaires' Row, and the third-highest overall, took place at 800 Park Avenue, a prestigious prewar cooperative on the Upper East Side Gold Coast. The full-floor 14th-story unit closed for $11,880,000.
