Mid-market sales returned to a slow pace last week after a virtual shutdown during the holiday week. 

In this slower environment, the deals involving commercial properties valued at $10 million to $40 million continue to be the high-end of the overall market. The eight deals in this range were a variety of rentals, offices and a developer partnering with a nonprofit. 

Below is more information on each sale that hit city records last week, ranked by dollar amount.

  1. The Chetrit Organization paid $32 million to Parkton Associates for 1009 Park Avenue, a 27-unit, 14-story residential investment. The purchase comes one year after Chetrit filed plans for a 20-story condominium project at another Upper East Side property.
