The townhouse, located at 14 Wyckoff Street, spans 5,112 square feet and is configured as a two-family home. At its last asking price, it would have a price-per-square-foot of $1,556. It has six bedrooms and five and a half bathrooms across three stories, and features front and rear gardens.

The condo, meanwhile, is a 3,236-square-foot penthouse in Dumbo’s Front & York development at 85 Jay Street. It had a higher price per square foot — $2,457 — than the townhouse, which is typical of condos. The penthouse has four bedrooms and four and a half bathrooms, along with 11-foot ceilings and a 781-square-foot wraparound terrace.

In total, last week’s contracts had asking prices totaling nearly $145 million, up from the previous week’s total of nearly $121 million. The median asking price was $2.6 million, and the average discount was 1 percent.
