Twenty-four contracts were signed last week at $4 million and above, but here’s the big headline: That makes 50 contracts signed in the first two weeks of 2017, tying 2014 as the best start of a new year since we started keeping score 11 years ago.
The No.1 contract was the Penthouse at 10 Sullivan Street, asking $27.5 million, which Bloomberg had reported to be in contract for $25 million. The new condo has 5,503 square feet including 5 bedrooms, 5 bathrooms, 2 powder rooms, and terraces totaling 1,378 square feet. The apartment features a living room with over 20-foot ceilings and a roof terrace. It was originally 8,400 square feet, asking $45 million, and the developer decided to carve it into 2 units. The other penthouse remains for sale at $10 million for 3 bedrooms with 2,950 square feet.
The No. 2 contract was a townhouse at 132 East 71st Street, asking $21 million, reduced from $25 million when it went on the market in September 2014. This 6-story, 22-foot-wide house has 9000 square feet including 6 bedrooms, 6 bathrooms, 2 powder rooms, 6 fireplaces, and an elevator. It is being sold by an estate, and was held in the same family for 40 years. The house is in need of renovation.
