April 05, 2013 12:30PM

Following several weeks of speculation, the Pierre Hotel penthouse hit the market this week for $125 million amid much fanfare, making it — obviously — the most expensive home to come online in Manhattan this week, according to StreetEasy. The staggering asking price makes the co-op the most expensive home on the market in New York City. Serena Boardman, Elizabeth Sample and Brenda Powers of Sotheby’s International have the listing. The penthouse belonged to late stock market pundit Martin Zweig. Located at 795 Fifth Avenue, the triplex home has five bedrooms, six bathrooms and three half bathrooms. There are also four terraces, five fireplaces and a private elevator, according to the listing.

It was quite a week for pricey pads to hit the market. Dan Neiditch of River 2 River Realty listed a 10,000-square-foot block of nine apartments at the Atelier in Hell’s Kitchen with an $85 million ask – the second most expensive digs to hit the market in Manhattan. If combined as listed, the condominium would span the whole 45th floor. Located at 635 West 42nd Street, the potential condo comes with 11-foot ceilings, 13 bathrooms and 10 bedrooms. The units feature white oak flooring, granite countertops, marble bathrooms and panoramic city views. The price also includes a $2 million construction credit, according to reports.

The next priciest listing to debut this week is a 7,687-square-foot eight-bedroom, 9.5-bathroom unit at Superior Ink. The West Village condo is asking $32.8 million. The full-floor home comes with views of the Empire State Building, the Statue of Liberty and the George Washington Bridge. The listing is a co-exclusive between Related Sales and Corcoran’s Robby Browne, Chris Kann and Jennifer Ireland.

The cheapest listing this week is a co-op at 45 Overlook Terrace in Hudson Heights. Simone Song at Simone Song Properties has the listing for the 500-square-foot studio which is asking $220,000. The home has hardwood flooring, an “updated” kitchen and a renovated bathroom, according to the listing.

Lisa D’Amico of Douglas Elliman has the next cheapest listing — a  studio co-op at 516 East 78th Street on the Upper East Side. The asking price is $225,000 for the home, which has nine-foot ceilings, a windowed kitchen and a windowed bath.

Steven Corcoran of the eponymous firm has the next cheapest listing this week. Located at 5 Tudor City Place in Murray Hill, this 300-square-foot studio co-op has a $265,000 asking price and recently refinished oak-strip flooring.
