Currently, there are only about 5,300 active condominium listings. This decline continued through Q4 2013 into Q1 2014, resulting in record high sales prices and absorption.
Sales in Q1 2014 hit an all-time 25-year high, up 32.8% since Q1 2013 on an average dollar per square foot basis. Additionally, the median price and average price per square foot for new developments in Downtown Manhattan have increased by approximately 20% since Q4 2012. With over 50,000 new employees will be added to the Downtown Manhattan market by 2015, which will continue to increase the condominium demand in the area and drive the price per square foot upwards. This upward trend is expected to continue with upcoming residential developments at The Four Seasons and the Woolworth Building both expected to reach in excess of $3,000 per square foot. Whilst the demand rises for condominiums in the Downtown Manhattan area, the average cost per square foot is still 60% lower in Manhattan than Central London.
