Manhattan New Development Report | 2017

Market Report provided by City Realty

Following the fallout from the economic crisis in 2008, sales of new condos were on a downward trend, and between 2012 and 2015, fewer than 1,000 units sold each year. In 2016, more than 2,000 new condo units sold, and although there was a fall-off in 2017—with 1,695 closings—CityRealty projects that roughly 1,800 and 2,000 units will close each year through 2020. CityRealty forecasts that the aggregate value of new development sales will reach an estimated $9.8 billion in 2018, $11.6 billion in 2019, and $11.9 billion in 2020. These estimated values do not take into consideration projects that may be planned but have not yet been filed with the attorney general, or for which pricing information has not been made public.
