The number of home sales in the Bronx soared in the first quarter of this year by 35 percent, far outpacing Manhattan, Brooklyn, and Queens.
More condos are on their way, such as on City Island, where On the Sound, a five-acre waterfront complex from the developer Greystone, has sold 29 of its 43 units since February 2015, according to Sona Davidian, an owner of McClellan Sotheby’s International Realty, which is handling sales.
The average sales price has been $355 a square foot, said Ms. Davidian, who added that the units still available start at $698,000 for a three-bedroom. Move-ins start this week.

Let’s dispense with the caveats upfront: So, technically, this week’s Escape Pick is within the five boroughs, but this condo in the Bronx—specifically on City island, a Bronx enclave reachable via a bridge off I-95—feels about as far from midtown Manhattan as Mystic, Connecticut, or any other seaside New England town it resembles.

Big buildings aren’t for everyone — some buyers look for a more boutique feel. If you’re one of them, and if you’re looking to live in a prime West Village location, check out this five-unit project that comes to market this month. The second through fifth floors house four full-floor units measuring about 2,700 square feet apiece, while the sixth and seventh floors will house a duplex penthouse occupying over 3,000 square feet. All homes will have private outdoor space, oversized windows, oil-finished oak floors and Gaggenau appliances in the kitchens. Want more? The building will also provide access to a Luxury Attache concierge and a virtual doorman. Prices begin at $6.6 million, with completion slated for the end of the year.
