As part of a recent expansion of its market indices, CityRealty has pulled together a new index tracking condo prices in NYC buildings designed by starchitects. The index quantifies the extent to which buyers are willing to pay a premium for apartments in buildings designed by big-name architects such as Robert A.M. Stern, Jean Nouvel and Norman Foster.

As of this week, prices in the Starchitect Condos Index were at $3,052 per square foot, higher than prices in indices such as The CityRealty 100 (at $2,685 per square foot) and Downtown Condos (at $2,407 per square foot). Prices in the Starchitect Index have grown 4.9 percent since last year, and 39.1 percent since 2011.

While starchitect designs often grab headlines when it comes to architecture and real estate, relatively few have actually been designed and completed in New York. The index tracks prices in 37 buildings designed by 15 starchitects. Several others that are in the pipeline but not yet completed include Jean Nouvel’s 53W53, Renzo Piano’s 565 Broome SoHo and Zaha Hadid’s 520 West 28th Street.

The 37 buildings included in the index are as follows:
