A vacant multifamily building prime for a mansion conversion and a condo so high in the air that “there will never be a need to close the curtains” are among the city’s most expensive new listings.

The first full week of February saw pricier listings come online with homes ranging from $25 million to almost $14 million hitting the market. Combined, the top five listings in New York City last week totaled $90.96 million.

The previous week’s five priciest ranged from $15 million to $25 million and totaled $89 million.

Here’s a look at the five most expensive properties that went live from Feb. 2 to Feb. 9, according to an analysis of StreetEasy and Compass data.

1. 515 Park Avenue, Unit 34/35 | Upper East Side | $25M
The 5,000-square-foot duplex spans four bedrooms on the 34th and 35th stories of the condo building. The apartment’s lower floor consists of the kitchen, living and dining rooms and home office. The listing agent is Douglas Elliman’s Tal Alexander.

2. Soori High Line, Unit PH | Chelsea | $19.75M
The triplex five-bedroom condo is accessible through a private elevator. The 4,510-square-foot unit has 1,719 square feet of outdoor terrace space, including a terrace within the master bedroom and rooftop pool area. Compass’ James Morgan has the listing.

3. One Beacon Court, Unit PH53W | Midtown | $17.5M
The three-bed, five-bath condo spans 4,500 square feet with 200 feet of floor-to-ceiling glass windows, facing north, west and south. The unit is 750 feet in the air and “there is no building within six blocks in any direction so there will never be a need to close the curtains,” listing agent Frans Preidel of Brown Harris noted in his description.

4. 53 East 67th Street | Upper East Side | $14.9M
The five-story townhouse built in 1910 is currently divided into eight units, but Elliman’s Sabrina Saltiel is marketing it as a single-family home. According to her listing, the home will be delivered to a buyer vacant with approved plans to reconvert it into a mansion. The property also has 9,000 square feet of available air rights and 20,084 of buildable square footage.

5. 15 Hudson Yards, Unit PH83A | Hudson Yards | $13.81M
The four-bedroom condo at the southeast corner of Related Companies’ tower spans 3,405 square feet. The apartment has a separate service entrance and floor-to-ceiling windows. Corcoran Sunshine Marketing Group is handling listings for the building.
