Last December, Thor Equities filed applications for a 71-story, nearly 353,600 square-foot mixed-use tower at 520 5th Avenue, in Midtown, and now Ceruzzi Properties has agreed to acquire the site for $325 million, according to Commercial Observer. The new owner plans to proceed with previous plans, which will feature three stories of retail, followed by 208 hotel rooms up to the 24th floor, and 145 residential units in the upper reaches of the tower.

Handel is the project’s architect, although renderings are not yet available. The site’s former six-story building was removed in 2014, and ground breaking is expected before 2016.
