Thirteen contracts were signed last week at $4 million and above, one more than during the same period in 2018. Condos outsold co-ops, 7 to 3, and 3 townhouses were in the mix.
The No.1 contract was 95A at 432 Park Avenue, asking $41.25 million. The developers, Harry Macklowe and CIM, also scored the top sale on the same floor in the final week of December by closing 95B at $30,191,920, a 26% discount off the asking price. Apartment 95A is a corner unit with 3,952 square feet including 3 bedrooms, a library, and 3.5 bathrooms. It features a 29’ x 29’ living room, an eat-in kitchen, and a 30-foot master suite. The unit has spectacular Central Park, Hudson and East River views. The building is 96 stories high, a concrete-and-glass edifice designed by Rafael Vinoly that can be seen from almost anywhere in the 5 boroughs. Amenities include a fitness center, a 75-foot swimming pool, private dining room, parking, a garden, and a children’s playroom.
The No. 2 contract was 60B at 157 West 57th Street, asking $28.9 million and sold by the developer Extell. The unit reportedly went to contract in the $22-million range. The 3-bedroom, 3.5-bathroom unit has 4,193 square feet including a 43’ x 30’ living room, an over 1000-square-foot master suite, and an entrance gallery—all with Central Park views. 157 West 57th Street was designed by Pritzker Prize-winning architect Christian de Portzamparc, with interiors by Thomas Juul-Hansen. The 90-story, 90-unit condo was built above the 5-star Park Hyatt Hotel, and has a separate entrance for its 210 rooms. Amenities include the use of the hotel’s fitness center and pool, and the condo has its own a private dining room, a library lounge, performance space, and a garage.
