From record-breaking to back-to-normal, that’s what last week was all about in the Manhattan luxury real estate market. Twenty-four contracts were signed at $4 million and above, 10 fewer than the previous week but on a par with typical mid-February sales. There is however, one trend of concern: Days On Market. Last week, the average property lingered on the market for 461 days with an average price reduction of 7% off the original asking price.
The No.1 contract was the 62nd floor at 45 East 22nd Street, asking $24.95 million. This 4,663-square-foot unit has 4 bedrooms, 4.5 bathrooms, and sweeping 360-degree views from the East River to the Hudson River. The apartment is in a new 65-story glass condo with 83 units that is under construction next to Madison Square Park. Amenities include a fitness center, basketball court, children’s playroom, and an outdoor terrace.
The No. 2 contract was 5A at 443 Greenwich Street, asking $15 million, not much more than the $14,675,019 paid in December, when the buyer was reportedly actor Mike Myers. The corner unit has 4,241 square feet including a 40-foot living room/dining room, a 22-foot kitchen, 4 bedrooms, and 4.5 bathrooms. The building is a former factory, built in the 1880s, that was converted into a 53-unit condo and retains some of the original details, like large windows and huge shutters. Amenities include a lap pool, fitness center, garage with valet parking, a landscaped courtyard, and a roof deck.
