Private terrace at 44 Lispenard Street's penthouse, the past week's top contract, overlooking views of Tribeca (Compass) Private terrace at 44 Lispenard Street's penthouse, the past week's top contract, overlooking views of Tribeca (Compass)
September 18-24, 2023 was a relatively quiet time for luxury contracts in Manhattan. Olshan Realty's market report recorded only eight contracts signed with asking prices of $4 million and up, the lowest number since mid-August 2022, and noted that the total luxury contract dollar volume of $45,414,199 was the lowest total since the height of the pandemic in summer 2020.
On the bright side, it was a good week for Tribeca: The in-demand neighborhood accounts for three of the top five contracts of the past week, with a penthouse at 44 Lispenard Street, a former store and loft building, leading the charge with a $7,500,000 asking price. It was trailed closely by another penthouse, this one at the top of Passive House building 60 White Street that was asking $5,999,999 in the third-highest price. A three-bedroom unit with a private balcony at 450 Washington Street had the fifth-highest contract with an asking price of $5,970,000.
Tribeca has experienced a residential resurgence in recent years, but the Upper East Side has long been considered the epicenter of Manhattan society. It also accounts for the other two highest-priced contracts of the past week: A four-bedroom co-op at 21 East 90th Street with Central Park vistas and an asking price of $6,195,000 had the second-highest contract. In Lenox Hill, a high-floor home at The Chatham with three bedrooms, three full baths, and a private terrace rounded out the top five with an asking price of $5,995,000.
