manhattans-most-expensive-sales Top 10 Most Expensive Sales This Week
Billionaires' Row newcomer 252 East 57th Street aced the top 10 list this week with eight-figure sales at the number two and three spots. The Skidmore, Owings & Merrill-designed tower represents more of a Midtown luxury building boom that shows no signs of retreating. Find out where else the week's biggest-ticket buys were, below.

This 15-room Park Avenue co-op represents one of two penthouse buys that hedge fund honcho Louis Bacon and his wife, Gabrielle, plan to combine for a sprawling sky palace on the Upper East Side. The Bacons closed on another penthouse in the pre-war building, which is also home to Caroline Kennedy and investor Howard Milstein, earlier this summer.

Closings began earlier this year at SOM's undulating 715-foot tower with interiors designed by acclaimed AD100 interior architect, Daniel Romualdez. This 4,600 square-foot home has the obligatory views that include Central Park and the East River, ceilings of nearly 12 feet, a gas fireplace, a balcony, a library, a 100 bottle wine refrigerator, three ovens and just about every other luxury finish you could imagine. Head-spinning building amenities include a porte cochere, an automated parking garage, a 75-foot pool, a hydrotherapy spa and fitness center, enormous outdoor space, a screening Room, furnished guest suites, play spaces for children and dogs and much, much more.

Another LLC, another high-floor stunner, another eight-figure closing at a new 57th street trophy tower. Possibly part of another massive condo combo (see the big-ticket sale above), this 4,616 square-foot, five-bedroom aerie has the same Central Park, and East River views, the same deluxe finishes, and the same 100-bottle wine refrigerator as #63A, and shares access to the same children's and pooch playrooms, swimming pool, spa and parking.
