Manhattan’s luxury rental market recorded 26 contracts at $4 million and above last week, according to Olshan Realty’s weekly market report. That was the second-best total on record for an Easter Week since Olshan began keeping track in 2006.
And co-ops had a particularly strong week with nine contracts, the largest figure since mid-November.
An 11-room co-op at 1125 Fifth Avenue took the No. 1 spot for the week, with an asking price of $20 million. The 14th floor unit has 5 bedrooms, 5 baths and huge picture windows overlooking Central Park and the reservoir.
Disney CEO Bob Iger earlier this year sold his 7th floor co-op in the building for $18.8 million.
Madison Equities, Building and Land Technology and Thor Equities condominium redevelopment of 212 Fifth Avenue notched the week’s second-priciest contract: a 4,155-square-foot unit asking $18.1 million.
The week’s asking price sales volume for luxury homes totaled $182.81 million, with a median asking price of $5.83 million. Luxury homes spent an average of 383 days on the market, with an average discount of 3 percent from the original ask to the final asking price. [Olshan Realty] – Rich Bockmann
