Danny Meyer and his former home at * East 12th Street in Greenwich Vilalge Danny Meyer and his former home at * East 12th Street in Greenwich Vilalge
Owing to an unusual number of high-priced deals at the end of the month, June 2024 closed on a slight year-over-year upswing. The first week of July 2024 experienced a nearly 40% week-over-week decline, but much of that can be attributed to an abbreviated business week due to the Independence Day holiday on Thursday. However, some high-priced deals in notable luxury buildings took place during this time.
A few months before closings are estimated to begin at Sutton Tower, the soaring high-rise was home to the top contract in the first week of July 2024. Penthouse #76 was originally listed for $25 million when the building launched sales, but its asking price of $21,000,000 was nevertheless the week's most expensive by an extremely comfortable margin. It encompasses the entire 76th floor of the tallest building in Sutton Place, where it enjoys 360-degree vistas of both rivers and the iconic Manhattan skyline through floor-to-ceiling windows. The buyer, identified by Olshan Realty's market report only as an Upper West Side resident, can also step out onto a private loggia just off the entrance gallery to enjoy the views.

Sutton Tower is located at the nexus of Sutton Place and the Upper East Side. In the heart of the Upper East Side, new development condominium The 74 put on a respectable showing with the full 23rd-floor residence, which was asking $12,500,000 in the week's third most expensive contract. The contract was signed shortly after The 74 ranked among Manhattan's best-selling buildings.
In Midtown, three contracts were reported at 520 Fifth Avenue. The sales team led by Corcoran Sunshine reported last week that the building 40% sold less than two months after the first contract was signed. The buyers will enjoy impressive views through oversized arched windows, interiors by AD100 designer Vicky Charles, an array of wellness and social amenities, and memberships to private club Moss in the building's base.

But for all the excitement of new development condos, the prewar cooperatives that brought Fifth Avenue and the Upper East Side to prominence remain coveted by luxury buyers. The week's top co-op contract and fourth-highest overall took place at the J.E.R. Carpenter-designed 14 East 90th Street, where Penthouse West was asking $11,995,000. Interiors feature wood-burning fireplaces, a chef's kitchen with greenhouse, a primary suite with steam shower and Jacuzzi tub, and a home theater system. However, the crown jewel is the private terrace spanning the entire circumference of the home and facing Central Park.

Crain's New York Business identified the seller as philanthropist Elizabeth Sackler and notes that she initially listed it for $16 million in April 2023. However, if it sells for this price, she would still make a small profit, having bought it from former Citi chairman Sanford Weill for $10.5 million in 2007.
Almost directly to the west, over $15 million in contracts were signed at the Carpenter-designed 1120 Fifth Avenue. Residence #10B, a three-bedroom home on a high-floor, entered contract with a $7,750,000. Two stories down, the three-bedroom Residence #8C was not far behind with a $7,350,000 ask. Both apartments enjoy excellent Central Park frontage and the grand proportions typical of their prewar era. With these contracts, there are no more public availabilities in the building.
In the heart of Greenwich Village, Residence 8/9FL at 8 East 12th Street had one of Downtown's highest contracts with an asking price of $8,500,000. Restaurateur Danny Meyer bought the ninth-floor unit in 1987 and, appropriately enough, installed a state-of-the-art kitchen. In the years since he sold it in 1998, it was combined with the eighth floor below and listed as a duplex for the first time in June 2024. The contract was signed a few short weeks after it came on the market.

A borough away, July 2024 began with five contracts signed at Brooklyn Point, bringing it to over 85% sold. The building is capped off with a roof terrace housing the Western Hemisphere's highest infinity pool in a residential building, located 680 feet above grade to look out on expansive views of the Manhattan skyline. The building is open for immediate occupancy, meaning the buyers may be able to close in time to enjoy the rooftop pool this summer. If not, they will have access to an indoor pool with hot tub and spa area, just a small sample of Brooklyn Point's extensive amenity offerings.
