Between rising interest rates, market fluctuations, and the Yom Kippur holiday, the past week was another quiet one. However, there was a number of exciting real estate deals. The top contract was the Deutsche Bank Center penthouse of Stephen Ross, chairman of Related, one of the firms that developed the Columbus Circle complex. When he initially listed it in summer 2019, it was with a $75,000,000 asking price and the announcement that he and his wife, jewelry designer Kara Ross, would be moving to a penthouse at 35 Hudson Yards, another Related development. Since then, the couple has split up and the penthouse has undergone multiple price reductions. It ultimately entered contract with an asking price of $49,900,000, or 33.4% off the original asking price.
Despite the discount, the Deutsche Bank Center penthouse was the highest contract of the past week by far. The second-highest contract and top co-op contract was for the tenth-floor unit at the Robert A.M. Stern-designed 1228 Madison Avenue, a four-bedroom, four and a half-bath unit asking $11,175,000. Three stories down, the seventh-floor residence had the third-highest contract with an $8,700,000 asking price.
75.5-Bedford-Street-01 Millay House (Nest Seekers)
Downtown, the narrowest house in New York entered contract with an asking price of $4,199,000. 75 ½ Bedford Street is known as Millay House in honor of Pulitzer Prize-winning poet/playwright Edna St. Vincent Millay, but she was far from the only notable resident. John Barrymore and Cary Grant stayed at the house during their stints at the Cherry Lane Theater. Decades later, anthropologist Margaret Mead lived in the house with her sister Elizabeth Mead Steig and brother-in-law, cartoonist/children's book author William Steig (best known for Caldecott Medal winner Sylvester and the Magic Pebble and Shrek!, the basis for the popular film franchise).
