After being crowned NYC’s best selling building 2 years in a row, the time has come for Williamsburg’s The Edge to leave its top spot. Q1 2013 brought a new wave of buildings into PropertyShark’s top 10 list of buildings with most units sold, half of them having median sale prices over $1 million.

Upper East Side, which hasn’t been part of the list for a while, is back, with 2 buildings making it into the top 10.  Comparing median sale prices for units sold this quarter over the entire last year, one can see that, in general, folks were more willing to pay more money for an apartment in Q1 2013.

With no further ado, here is how the top 10 looks like:

250 West Street

#1. 250 West Street
250 West Street, in the heart of Tribeca’s historic district, leads the Q1 2013 top 10. It sold the most units, 48, and at the largest median sale price, $2,823,098. First built in 1906, as a warehouse, the 11-story building was converted into apartments, and now features over 100 luxury units.

Flushing’s Sky View Parc was ranked 8th last year. It now occupies second place, having sold 43 units in the first quarter of 2013, with a median sale price of $660,000.
