Manhattan’s luxury market logged another banner week for trophy properties. 

Buyers signed 10 contracts for homes asking $10 million or more between May 6 and May 12, according to Olshan Realty’s weekly report. 

The total of inked trophy property deals — up from eight in the previous period — hit the highest number since mid-July. 

The priciest home to snag a signed contract was the 86th floor of 157 West 57th Street, with an asking price of $38.5 million. The 6,200-square-foot condo, which hit the market in March, has four bedrooms and five bathrooms. It last traded for $31.9 million in 2021.

The Billionaires’ Row home also features views of Central Park and the East and Hudson rivers. It has a private landing with key-locked elevator and an open-concept family room and kitchen. 

Compass’ Jorge Lopez had the listing. 

Amenities at Extell Development’s 90-unit tower include a fitness center, pool, garage and hotel services from the Park Hyatt Hotel on the lower floors.

Discounts have plagued the building, known as One57, with several units trading for nearly $10 million less than their initial asking prices. 

The second most expensive home to find a buyer was 118 West 12th Street in Greenwich Village, with an asking price of $19 million. The four-story townhouse spans 6,600 square feet and has five bedrooms and three bathrooms.

The renovated home — sold by Glossier founder Emily Weiss and her partner, fintech executive William Gaybrick — also features a landscaped garden and terrace. 

The couple purchased the home in November for just under $18 million, but they opted to trade it for a Brooklyn Heights brownstone just five months later.

In total, 32 homes asking $4 million or more entered contract last week, six more than the previous period. Of those, 16 were condos, 10 were co-ops, five were townhouses and one was a condop.

The homes’ combined asking price was $313.5 million, which works out to an average of $9.8 million and a median of $7.4 million. The typical home spent 388 days on the market and received an 8 percent discount.
