Roosevelt Island Condo Misses $2 Million Mark, Yet Sets a Record

(Bloomberg) -- A condo on New York’s Roosevelt Island listed at $2 million missed that mark, but still set a price record.

The 1,433-square-foot (133-square-meter), three-bedroom apartment -- with a view of the midtown Manhattan skyline -- sold for $1.87 million, according to listing broker Ben Garama of Corcoran Group, who said the deal was completed Thursday.

The price for the home at 415 Main St. tops the previous record of $1.75 million on Roosevelt Island, a sliver of land on the East River where a new Cornell University campus is under construction. Garama was also the broker for that deal last year, which was for an identically sized apartment in the same building.
