Let’s kick off the Curbed Awards with a look back at the boat loads of money spent on New York City homes this year. Like last year, every sale that made the top 20 list was more than $20 million. Our information was culled from StreetEasy’s database of closed sales this year, so mega deals like the sale of One57’s unbuilt penthouse are not included, but either way, billionaires still had a blockbuster year.
$31.5M – 1030 5th Avenue
The co-op on the ninth floor of 1030 Fifth Avenue was listed for $35 million, but after a bidding war, it sold for $31.5 million. The place has a jaw-dropping floor plan, plus all the “grand elegance” you expect from the UES. George Blumenthal sold the place to Lori and Zachary Jared Miller (really?) Schreiber, who, interestingly, moved there from 15 Central Park West.
