  • 2 East 67th Street

    The third floor of one of Manhattan’s premiere pre-war co-ops, 2 East 67th Street, appears to have been re-listed today with an asking price of $30 million, $8 million less than in 2009, according to

    The five-bedroom, five-bathroom unit was last listed by Greek pharmaceutical executive Athanase Lavidas, according to published reports. In 2008, the Fifth Avenue co-op was asking $43 million, and since that was not too long after Jonathan Tisch, the Loews Corporation co-chairman, famously dropped $48 million for the 11th floor of the grandiose building, that price might not have been unreasonable. In 2009, the price was chopped to $38 million, Curbed reported. As no relevant sales for that building appear in city records, it appears the Greek baron is the seller of the unit. [more]

    Socialite and philanthropist Lily Safra’s son, Eduardo, is in contract on two adjacent co-op apartments at 2 East 67th Street for approximately $18 million combined — a 25 percent discount off their last combined asking price of $24 million, and a nearly 50 percent discount off of their original combined asking price: $34.5 million, according to the Post. The two apartments, each with two bedrooms and four bathrooms, comprise the entire fourth floor and are said to be in good condition. In 2008, Loews CEO Jonathan Tisch bought an 11th-floor apartment in the same building that needed major renovations for $48 million. The full third-floor unit below the new pad recently saw a $5 million price cut to $38 million. [Post, 3rd item]

  • Luxury sellers toy with higher prices

    In late August, developer Aby Rosen caused tongues to wag when he bumped up the price of his newly renovated townhouse at 3 East 94th Street to $24.75 million from $23.75 million. While this asking figure pales in comparison to the space’s original price — $29.5 million — some say Rosen’s move was indicative of the changing luxury landscape in Manhattan real estate, one in which some sellers now feel comfortable raising their prices. Michael Lemos, a Greek shipping heir, is another seller toying with increasing his home price. He raised the asking figure on his 14-room co-op at 2 East 67th Street up to $45 million this summer. “The seller feels that $45 million is appropriate,” listing agent Dolly Lenz, vice chairman at Prudential Douglas Elliman, said.
