Report on Contracts Signed
23 Contracts Signed
The luxury real estate market in Manhattan had a strong showing last week, despite the traditionally weak Passover-Easter period: 23 contracts were signed at $4 million and above. With inventory at an all-time low, new construction has taken up the slack: Year-to-date, 33% of the sales at $4 million and above have been in new condo buildings sold off of floorplans. Many of these units will not be completed for another 2 years.
The No.1 contract was Apartment 5/6D at 19 East 72nd Street, asking $12.975 million, reduced from $14.5 million when it started on the market in October. The co-op duplex was purchased in 2006 for $10 million and renovated by the renowned architecture firm of Beyer Blinder and Belle. It has 4 bedrooms, 4.5 bathrooms, a library, eat-in kitchen, and 2 fireplaces.
The No. 2 contract was apartment PHW at 11 North Moore Street, asking $11 million, reduced from $12.75 million when it started on the market in October. This new 3-bedroom, 3.5-bathroom duplex condo has 3,541 square feet and 11-foot ceilings. Downstairs is a spectacular 48-foot great room that opens onto a 269-square-foot-terrace. The upstairs has a bedroom wing that includes a giant master suite.
