Fortis’ Olympia Dumbo returned last week to the top of Brooklyn’s luxury market.

The sail-shaped tower snagged the priciest contract inked in the borough in the period, according to Compass’ weekly report on units asking $2 million or more. The 2,200-square-foot condo last asked $5.4 million.

Unit 22B at 30 Front Street has three bedrooms and two bathrooms, including a primary suite with views of the Brooklyn Bridge. 

Amenities at the 76-residence building include a full-service lobby, tennis court, fitness center and indoor and outdoor pools. 

The 33-story tower was built in 2021. Douglas Elliman’s Barton Barrett Marshall Team and Sotheby’s International’s Heyman Team, led by Karen and Casey Heyman, are heading sales at the property. 

Last month, the developer replaced Fredrik Eklund, John Gomes and Adam Widener from Douglas Elliman’s Eklund Gomes Team with Lindsay Barton Barrett, Maggie Marshall and Lena Lerner.

At the end of October, the building had 40 units closed, putting it at more than halfway sold, according to the Heyman Team. 

The second most expensive home to find a buyer was 142 Saint Marks Avenue in Prospect Heights, with an asking price of $5 million. The townhouse, built in 1931, spans five floors with four bedrooms and four bathrooms. 

The renovated home also features a yard and roof deck.

Brown Harris Stevens’ Ari Harkov had the listing. 

Buyers signed contracts for 13 homes asking $2 million or more in the borough from Nov. 13 to Nov. 19. The total — which included contracts for six condos, one co-op and six townhouses — was down from the 21 inked in the previous period

The average asking price was $3.2 million, or $1,218 per square foot. On average, the homes spent 148 days on the market and were priced at 2 percent less than their original listing price.
