UPDATED Tuesday, January 14, 2020, 5:42 p.m.:  The first full work week of the decade was a strong one for luxury listings.

Five pricey apartments ranging from nearly $23 million to $25 million hit the market, significantly higher amounts than in previous weeks.

Combined, the five priciest listings in New York City totaled nearly $120 million. Last week, the combined value of the most expensive five new listings was about $88 million.

Notably, a spate of listings at 53 West 53, the luxury tower designed by renowned French architect Jean Nouvel, adjacent to the Museum of Modern Art, came online.

Here’s a look at the most expensive listings from Jan. 6 through Jan. 12, according to an analysis of StreetEasy and Compass data.

1. 70 West 45th Street #PH3 | Midtown | $25 million
The five-bedroom unit spans the 48th and 49th floors of the Cassa Hotel and Residences. Its 360-degree views are complemented by Mahogany-embossed leather floors, etched designer ceilings and hand painted mirrors, according to its listing by Nest Seekers International’s Sebastian Lopera. Room service from Butter Restaurant — which is also in the building — and hotel maid service are available.

2. 885 Park Avenue #PHAB | Upper East Side | $24.5 million
The sprawling six-bed, six-bath unit was combined from two adjacent apartments to create a 5,600-square-foot home. It also has 3,200 square feet of outdoor space. The home has three gas fireplaces and the master bath has a walk-in shower. Cathy Taub of Sotheby’s International Realty has the listing.

3. 432 Park Avenue #PH81A | Midtown East | $23.75 million

The 3,670-square-foot three-bedroom is one of a slew of sponsor units at the Jean Nouvel–designed tower that hit the market last week. The half-floor residence has floor-to-ceiling windows. Its interiors were designed by Thierry Despont and the master bathroom is outfitted with Verona limestone floors with marble and golden travertine walls. Corcoran Sunshine Marketing Group is handling sales and marketing for the project.
