Two Yorkville condo units broke the record last week for the priciest sale north of 79th Street and east of Lexington Avenue.

The penthouse at Anbau’s Citizen 360 and a unit below it had a total asking price of $21.7 million, breaking the record set in 2009 by a condo sold at 170 East End Avenue for $17 million, according to Olshan Realty’s TRData LogoTINY latest market report. The duplex penthouse spans 4,568 square feet, has four bedrooms and features a 2,529-square-foot wraparound terrace. The unit below it, 32A, spans 2,862 square feet and has four bedrooms.

The sales at the Citizen — which were separate, but the units will be combined — were two of 15 residential contracts signed in Manhattan for $4 million or more, according to the report. The total asking price sales volume last week was $132.3 million.

A $25 million condo unit at Extell Development’s One57 was the week’s top contract, but it sold at a hefty loss. The previous owner of the six-bedroom unit — an LLC fittingly called “Escape from New York” — paid $32 million for the condo and initially listed it for $38.9 million. [Olshan Realty] — Kathryn Brenzel
