220 Central Park South's record as home of the country's most expensive home still stands, and it racked up another superlative when a $75,000,000 sale was the highest of last week. The buyer was not identified, and the seller was listed as a trust linked to Hudson Valley Lighting Group founder David Littman. When Crain's New York Business announced the sale of the full-floor, 6,591-square-foot unit, it noted the seller's massive profit: The apartment last sold for $55.5 million in October 2019.

Not only was the apartment at 220 Central Park South the highest sale of the week by an extremely comfortable margin, but it was also one of the highest of the year. It comes a few months after an $80 million sale in the building several stories down.

220 Central Park Avenue is arguably the "tower of power" of the modern age, but the original has not been forgotten: The second-highest sale and top co-op sale took place at the Rosario Candela-designed 740 Park Avenue, where duplex #10/11C closed for $17,000,000. This represents a 28% reduction from when it entered contract in spring 2023, but the seller, listed as philanthropist Miranda Wong Tang, nevertheless makes a tidy profit, having paid over $7 million for it in 1995. Public records also list the buyer as O-Corp Investments founder and managing partner Michael Olshan; he joins the ranks of moguls past and present like Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis, Stephen Schwarzman, William Zeckendorf, and John Thain who have called the building home.
Additionally, the fifth-highest sale of the week was for a full-floor West Chelsea condo owned by basketball star Carmelo Anthony, which closed for $10,500,000. The apartment was initially listed for $12,850,000 in February 2020, around the time Anthony signed a contract with the Portland Trailblazers. The sale comes in months after his retirement following a successful NBA career and shortly after Architectural Digest ran a profile of his new Westchester mansion.

When the five-bedroom, four-bath home with private outdoor space and High Line views was relisted in July 2022, listing broker Aaron Seawood of Triplemint extolled the privacy, flexibility, and views (h/t 6sqft). Public records show that Anthony and ex-wife La La bought the apartment for $11 million in 2015.
