It Happened One Weekend: Related Seals the Deal

1) Curbed would like to congratulate to the Related Companies, which just sold the last remaining apartment in the Time Warner Center. The north tower half-floor penthouse went for $16.95 million to an undisclosed buyer. The 201 units sold for a combined $1.1 billion, and the average price-per-square-foot was almost $2,500. And you get to live on top of a mall. [William Neuman/Big Deal]
2) We've got a dropout from the $50 million club. After fielding few offers, WorldCom director Francesco Galesi has PriceChopped the asking price on his six-bedroom River House co-op by $11 million. Maybe he just didn't give it enough time? The fancypants, museum-like apartment (right), at 52nd St. and the East River, is now going for $39 million. Check out the listing here.

3) A mom and her teenage model daughter go on the hunt for a Manhattan apartment, but are shocked (shocked!) at the prices. The North Carolinians, novices to New York, discover Craigslist and Roosevelt Island. That doesn't work out, so where will they end up? [Joyce Cohen/The Hunt]
4) The city's oldest Jewish congregation wants to build a nine-story tower around the corner from its Central Park West synagogue, with the top five floors serving as market-rate apartments. The Landmarks Preservation Commission has already approved the plan. [Jeff Vandam/Posting]
