At the Newly Opened Hudson Yards, More Closed Sales


Manhattan’s latest crop of new luxury developments continues to attract a steady stream of buyers.

At the ultra-pricey 220 Central Park South in Midtown, the grand limestone skyscraper designed by Robert A.M. Stern Architects, four more units officially sold, including New York City’s most expensive closing in May: a three-bedroom aerie for nearly $26.5 million.

On the Upper West Side, at 250 West 81st Street, another limestone creation by Mr. Stern and company, there were also four apartment sales — among them, the largest in the nearly sold out 28-unit building. At almost $25.7 million, this was the month’s runner-up sale.

About half a dozen purchases also closed at the newly opened Hudson Yards. Philip I. Kent, the former chief executive of Turner Broadcasting System, was one of the many buyers at 15 Hudson Yards, the megaproject’s first residential tower. (Oh, and the architect who helped design that building also bought an apartment — in Greenpoint, Brooklyn.)

In other big deals, there were notable townhouse transactions, including the sale of the longtime Upper East Side home of John L. Loeb Jr., the former United States ambassador to Denmark. The most expensive co-op sale was also on the Upper East Side: Howard Stringer, the former head of the Sony Corporation, found a buyer for his Fifth Avenue apartment.

At 220 Central Park South, the supertall condominium near Columbus Circle with expansive Central Park and cityscape vistas, doors opened to residents late last year. It’s difficult, though, to pinpoint how many of the 100 or so units have sold or are under contract, given the developer’s reluctance to provide that information. Last month, apartments on the 44th, 43rd, 30th and 28th floors closed.

The higher-floor units were similarly configured, with 3,114 square feet and three bedrooms and three and a half baths, and they were close in price. (No. 43A sold for almost $25.5 million, about $1 million less than 44A, the month’s priciest transaction.)

The lower units, on the building’s B-line, each sold for $15.8 million. Both are nearly 2,500 square feet, with two bedrooms and two and a half baths.

The 65-floor building, developed by Vornado Realty Trust, set a national record earlier this year for the highest price paid for a single residence when the billionaire hedge fund manager Kenneth Griffin shelled out almost $240 million for four floors totaling 24,000 square feet.

The Upper West Side tower, on the corner of 81st and Broadway, offers more of a boutique feel, standing 18 stories tall, with retail occupying the first two floors. The building was developed by Alchemy Properties and the Carlyle Group, and was designed to blend in with the neighborhood’s many prewar apartment houses.
