There were 25 contracts signed in Manhattan at $4 million and above between April 9 and 15. This means that 104 contracts have been signed in the borough since the last week of March. The total volume of the deals since that time is at $849 million, which stands as the best start to spring for the Manhattan luxury market since 2015. The most expensive contract for the week was for Penthouse A at 443 Greenwich Street, which went into contract with an asking price of $58 million. Read the report here.

The average asking rent in Midtown dropped 5 percent in the first quarter to $83.49. The decline was attributed partly to older space that’s been left on the market. In spite of the decline in pricing, Midtown proved to be the main location for large office deals. The area was the site for 11 of the 15 leases in Manhattan that spanned over 100,000 square feet. The biggest transaction for the quarter was JPMorgan’s 418,00-square-foot lease at 390 Madison Avenue.
