Manhattan’s luxury market saw 27 contracts signed last week for a total of about $213 million, according to the latest report from Olshan Realty.

The contracts signed at $4 million or above were split between 14 condominiums, 11 co-ops and two townhouses. Total sales and dollar volume were both up from the week before, when 21 contracts were signed for about $196 million.

The top contract last week was former General Electric chairman and CEO Jack Welch’s condo at 151 East 58th Street, which had an asking price of $24.9 million, down $1 million from when it hit the market a year ago. The four-bedroom unit in the Beacon Court condo complex spans nearly 5,800 square feet.
