Seemingly from the time it was constructed, the Robert A.M. Stern-designed 220 Central Park South has attracted attention among luxury buyers. Hedge fund executive Ken Griffin's $238 million purchase in the building remains the country's most expensive home sale, and sponsor units in the building regularly rank among Manhattan's top sales. However, following the sale of two sponsor units almost exactly halfway through April 2024, the building is inching closer to sellout.
Residence #43B, a three-bedroom overlooking Central Park, had the week's top sale by a comfortable margin at $33,000,000. Crain's New York Business identified buyer Protista 220 LLC as a trust linked to the New England Patriots, pointing out that the name is an anagram of "Patriots," and noted that the same buyer bought a studio several stories down, presumably as staff or guest quarters, for an even $1,000,000.
Great Room overlooking the Hudson River 551W21, #15A, the second-highest sale (The Agency)
The top Downtown sale and second-highest took place at the Foster & Partners-designed 551W21 in West Chelsea, where Residence #15A closed for $14,500,000, or just under the last asking price of $15.25 million. The seller, identified only through a trust, took a small loss on it, having bought the apartment for $16,466,145 in October 2016 (per public records).

The sale was recorded roughly around the time the ink was drying on the contract for its next-door neighbor, Residence #15B, which was asking $10,750,000. It cannot be confirmed whether this is the same buyer looking to combine them into one massive full-floor unit, but it would not be impossible.
Greek Revival townhouse 64 East 7th Street, #TH (Douglas Elliman)
Also of note last week, 64 East 7th Street closed for $9,850,000, or 21% below the $12.5 million asking price when it entered contract in January 2024. Public records indicate that seller Bill Joy has taken a loss on it, having paid $15,750,000 for it in 2019.

The Greek Revival house was built in 1840 as the parsonage for the Evangelical Lutheran Church of St. Mark, which would tragically lose the majority of its congregation in a 1904 fire aboard the PS General Slocum steamship on the way to a church picnic. In the short term, the surviving parishioners moved to Yorkville to escape the painful memories pro-Communist newspaper Russky Golos ("Russian Voice") moved into the house.

Over the next several decades, 64 East 7th Street saw new life as the home of Beat coffeehouses, a macrobiotic restaurant, Books 'N Things, and a designer consignment shop. Most recently, it was renovated into a single-family home with smart home infrastructure, a living room with Cinemascope projection theater, a state-of-the-art kitchen with garden access, a full-floor primary suite, a basement-level pantry/wine room, and private roof terrace with pizza oven.
