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.

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.
