The top contract of the past week was #37A at the Robert A.M. Stern-designed 15 Central Park West, which was asking $26,000,000. The seller of the 3-bedroom, 3.5-bath, 3,105-square-foot condominium was not identified, but we can confirm that they will be taking a loss on it—they paid $30 million for it in 2014 and listed it for $28 million this April.
15 Central Park West has long been a fixture on lists of top sales and contracts, but the next-highest contracts came from a new entrant: The Cortland, a new West Chelsea condominium designed by Robert A.M. Stern Architects in partnership with Olson Kundig. Olshan Realty did not include these in their weekly market report because the head of sales did not confirm when the contracts were signed; however, eight contracts were reported last week totaling to $93.8 million based on thier sticker prices. These included an apartment asking $23,500,000 and another asking $16,750,000, which ranked high enough for the second- and third-highest contracts of the past week. The top five contracts also include a four-bedroom home in the building asking $12,500,000.
