The Majestic, #19EF, top sale for week ending November 17 (Brown Harris Stevens) The Majestic, #19EF, top sale for week ending November 17 (Brown Harris Stevens)
Manhattan Sales:

  • For the week ending November 17, 2023, $436,486,506 worth of transactions across 254 condo, condop, and cooperative deals were recorded
  • 92 condo sales came to an aggregate price of $222,783,207
  • Five condop sales came to an aggregate price of $7,414,601
  • 157 co-op sales came to an aggregate price of $206,288,698

The top sale of the past week was for Residence #19EF at Central Park West cooperative The Majestic, which sold for $20,500,000. The five-bedroom, five-bath home offers direct elevator entry, a bookshelf-lined library, and a private terrace ideal for enjoying Central Park foliage.

The buyer was identified only through a trust, but the seller is listed as Susan Weber, historian, philanthropist, and ex-wife of investor George Soros. While good enough for the top sale of the week, the price nevertheless represents a 59 percent reduction from when it was first listed for $50 million in 2012; it had been on and off the market ever since. It entered contract with an asking price of $24,500,000 in June 2023.
On the opposite side of Central Park, a five-bedroom duplex at 941 Park Avenue had the second-highest co-op sale and fourth-highest overall at $10,300,000, or slightly under the $10.5 million ask when it entered contract in May 2023. Public records indicate that it appears to have traded from one high-powered executive to another: It was sold by the estate of Nancy Garvey, an executive at Allied Signal Corporation (now Honeywell), to finance/investment executive Emily Stecher.

But while prestigious prewar Upper East Side and Upper West Side cooperatives have clearly retained their cachet among luxury buyers, last week's sales acted as a further demonstration of how Tribeca has emerged as a favorite among today's wealthiest. Residence #1A at The Lispenard, a classic cast-iron building dating back to the mid-19th century, was hot on The Majestic's heels with a $19,460,000 sale that appears to have taken place off-market; both parties conducted the transaction for the week's highest-priced condo through LLCs. Less than a mile northwest, a high-floor three-bed at skyline standout 111 Murray Street had the fifth-highest sale at $9,750,000.
Super-skinny supertall 111 West 57th Street rounded out the top five with Residence #14N, which sold for $13,085,981 in the third-highest sale, or slightly above the $12.95 million ask when it entered contract in August 2023. The four-bedroom, four and a half-bath home is located in the restored Steinway Hall component of the new condominium and is rich in prewar-inspired details.
