Manhattan’s luxury market kept busy last week.

Thirty-two contracts were signed last week for homes asking at least $4 million, according to Olshan Realty’s weekly report. The total is six more than the previous week and up 10 from two weeks prior. 

The most expensive unit to enter contract was 5H at 443 Greenwich Street, asking $15.9 million. The 4,000-square-foot condo has four bedrooms, four and a half bathrooms and a nearly 600-square-foot living room. The seller paid $13.7 million for it in 2017.

Metro Loft Managment’s “paparazzi-proof” building has become a haven for the rich and famous, due in part to its underground garage with valet parking. Amenities at the 53-unit condo building, which was converted in 2015 from a former factory building, include a fitness center, a lap pool, a landscaped courtyard and a roof deck.

The second most expensive home to enter contract last week was a penthouse at 190 Riverside Drive, with an asking price of $15 million.

The home belonged to comedian Amy Schumer, who bought the full-floor, 4,500-square-foot condo in 2016 for $12.1 million. 

The unit has five bedrooms, five and a half bathrooms and 3,000 square feet of outdoor space on two levels. It also has a glass solarium living room with a fireplace surrounded by a landscaped terrace.

The unit was offered for sale shortly before Schumer appeared to have swapped boroughs, picking up a townhouse in Brooklyn Heights in June.

Of the 32 units to enter contract last week, 24 were condos, six were co-ops, one was a condop and one was a townhouse.

The homes’ combined volume was $228 million; the homes’ average asking price was $7.1 million and the median asking price was $5.8 million. The typical home was discounted 6 percent and spent 571 days on the market.
