As an investment, condos hold up. CityRealty compared the growth in the price per square foot over the last ten years to growth in other investment markets, such as the S&P 500, the price of oil and the price of gold. Condos grew in value by 5.30% per year.

The most expensive condominium in the city is 15 Central Park West. The top five is rounded out by two buildings in Columbus Circle; One Madison; and Superior Ink, at 400 West 12th Street in the West Village.

And the unit that sold for eight figures? That would be the triplex penthouse at One Madison, a five-bedroom, 5 1/2-bath, 6,850-square-foot apartment. But the most expensive per square foot was the second most expensive overall: Apartment #64CE at the Time Warner Center. With five bedrooms, six baths and 4,366 square feet, it sold for $30 million — a cool $6,871 per square foot. We ain’t in Kansas anymore, that’s for sure.
