Manhattan’s luxury residential market notched 24 contracts last week at $4 million and above, according to Olshan Realty’s weekly luxury market report.

A duplex condominium at the Plaza Hotel took the week’s No. 1 spot with an asking price of $33.95 million. That’s a discount of $1 million off the original asking price when the three-bedroom, three-bath unit hit the market in September.

The contract price for the 3,947-square-foot condo works out to roughly $8,600 per square foot. The owner paid just shy of $23 million for the home back in 2008, or about $5,800 per square foot.

Elsewhere in the building, fashion mogul Tommy Hilfiger is asking $50 million for his duplex apartment – a steep discount from the $80 million he had previously been asking.
