From August 29-September 4, 2021, a total of 465 condo, co-op, and condop sales were recorded in Manhattan, coming to an aggregate price of $898,072,637 and making August 2021 the biggest month of recorded deals. The 200 condo sales came to a median price of $1.94 million. The nine condop sales came to a median price of $1.15 million, and the 256 co-op sales recorded a median price of $750K.
It was a good week for Upper East Side sales, with a $60 million triplex penthouse at 2 East 88th Street leading the charge. The exterior of the building was used in American Psycho; the interiors span the entire 14th, 15th, and 16th floors and are topped with a glass conservatory, offices, and entertainment space facing Central Park South and the Reservoir. This is Manhattan's most expensive co-op sale since 2015, coming in $20 million over ask.

A Mansion Global article notes that this sale came after only one day of showings in May 2021. The buyer was not identified, and the seller is financier/producer Jacqui Safra. It was trailed by a $20.35 million sale at The Marquand and a $19.1 million sale at 432 Park Avenue, located on the cusp of Billionaires' Row and the Upper East Side.
At the same time, Downtown condos also put on a strong showing. Randall Mills, vice chair of eXp World Holdings, closed on a home at the Zaha Hadid-designed 520 West 28th Street for $12 million, and a four-bedroom home at Tribeca's 45 Walker Street closed for $12.75 million, or 34.2 percent more than the last listed price of $9.5 million. Its most recent buyer and seller are hidden by LLCs, but screenwriter/director M. Night Shyamalan is among the previous owners. Mr. Shyamalan purchased the property for $6.3 million in 2003, and public records filed with the city in early 2012 indicate that he sold it for $9.5 million.

From August 30-September 5, 2021, a total of 23 contracts priced $4 million and up were signed in Manhattan with a total weekly asking price sales volume of $180,750,000. This is four fewer contracts than last week, yet represents the strongest pre-Labor Day weekend total since Olshan Realty began keeping track in 2006.
The leading contract by far was #PH1 at The Puck Penthouses, which entered contract with an asking price of $42.5 million. The unit has been on and off the market since 2015, starting at $66 million, and relisted for $42.5 million in March 2019. The Wall Street Journal announced the contract and the news that power couple Joshua Kurshner and Karlie Kloss signed a deal to buy the penthouse. The paper notes that The Puck Penthouses was developed by Kushner Cos., and Olshan Realty's market report says that Mr. Kushner and Ms. Kloss also own the other penthouse in the building.

Beyond The Puck Penthouses, it was another good week for New York City townhouses - four found buyers, and two are in the top five contracts. The second-highest deal of the week was the multi-unit townhouse at 95 Bedford Street, which started out as stables and then the headquarters for J. Goebel & Co. It is in need of renovations, but nevertheless entered contract with an asking price of $15.95 million.

From the listing:
Nestled in the heart of the West Village sits 95 Bedford Street, 9,232 square foot, multi-family townhouse with a sought-after private garage and exceptional history. The townhouse, designed for Herman Schade by Kurzer & Kohl architects of the time, was erected in 1894 to be used as Schade's personal stable. In 1927, after being utilized as a stable for many years J. Goebel & Co., the sole American importer of Grossalmerode clay, used to make crucibles, moved their company into the building. At that time they molded their insignia over the arched entrance proclaiming their new location, which can still be seen today. The firm utilized the ground floors for production and rented out the upper levels as apartments. J. Goebel & Co remained the building's owners until 1946 at which time an investor took possession. The townhouse, which has been held by a handful of owners since its original construction, has been lovingly maintained by the current family for over 45 years. The building is not only ideally located between Grove and Barrow Street but features meticulously maintained facade details, 25' of width, a garage (possibly two), and endless opportunities to create an unrivaled single-family West Village mansion, which can only be described as priceless.
