Extell Development had a clean sweep in Manhattan’s luxury market last week. 

Two of the developer’s buildings were home to the two most expensive contracts signed between Nov. 13 and 19, according to Olshan Realty’s weekly report on Manhattan homes asking $4 million or more.

The most expensive home to enter contract was in 50 West 66th Street, in its fifth time this year claiming the top spot in the report. Unit 42NS snagged a signed contract after asking $45.8 million. 

The 7,000-square-foot conbo unit has five bedrooms, 5.5 bathrooms and 14-foot ceilings. A 56-foot great room with two loggias offers views of Central Park. 

Douglas Elliman’s Janice Chang and Timothy Hsu had the listing. 

Amenities at the building include doormen, a fitness center, indoor lap pool and outdoor saltwater pool and jacuzzi, basketball and pickleball courts, a screening room, game room and dog-washing facilities.
