Priciest home sales in 2013 eclipsed by the previous year

When it comes to the priciest residential sales of the year, it seems that 2013 isn’t quite up to snuff, at least compared to 2012.

For example, the city’s top townhouse sale this past year, a $34.35 million deal at 21 Beekman Place, was lower than the $42 million sale of 973 Fifth Avenue — the priciest townhouse to sell 2012. The trade of a unit at 720 Park Avenue snagged the most expensive co-op sale for this year, but its $24 million price tag fell flat after the record-setting $54 million sale of Denise Rich’s 785 Fifth Avenue co-op in 2012. Indeed, none of the residential sales came close to the $88 million deal for Sandy Weill’s 15 Central Park West penthouse the year before, the New York Observer reported.

Of course, the Observer’s ranking did not take into account contracts signed at numerous swanky condo properties, including the two apartments that went for more than $90 million at Extell Development’s One57, nor the deals signed at 56 Leonard and Walker Tower for $47 million and more than $50 million, respectively.

The year’s priciest listings have idled, with the Pierre’s $125 million triplex penthouse at 795 Fifth Avenue and River Club’s massive $130 million planned mansion — the city’s most expensive listing — sitting on the market with, so far, no bites. [NYO]Julie Strickland
