Joseph Chetrit’s Chetrit Group is bringing 96 condominiums to the former Sony Building at 550 Madison Avenue, for a total sellout of a whopping $1.8 billion, according to plans filed with the Attorney General’s office.

The Chetrit Group, along with investors, paid $1.1 billion for Sony’s former headquarters in early 2013, beating out several other suitors including Vornado Realty Trust, Macklowe Properties and Thor Equities. In June, the developers filed plans with the Attorney General to convert part of the 37-story tower, which is located between 55th and 56th Streets, into condos. The principal sponsors of the condo are listed as Meyer Chetrit and David Bistricer of Clipper Equity.

Two of the city’s most high-profile development projects, Extell Development’s One57 And Macklowe Properties 432 Park Avenue, had initial total sellouts of $2 billion and $2.4 billion respectively.

Representatives from Chetrit declined to comment. The developer aims to convert floors 14 through 33 of the tower, according to plans filed with the city’s Department of Buildings in October. SLCE Architects is the architect. The residential component would take up 434,778 square feet of the 648,366-square-foot building. Plans call for 12 apartments on the 14th floor and five apartments on floors 15 through 23. There will be four apartments on floors 24 through 29, three apartments on floors 34 and 35 and two apartments on floors 34 and 35. A floor-through penthouse is planned for the 36th floor.
