UPDATED: March 24, 10:58: American Realty Capital’s New York City REIT is taking over the ground lease at the 22-story office building at 1140 Sixth Avenue in Midtown.

The firm will pay $180 million to the Blackstone Group for the privilege. The roughly 250,000-square-foot building, part of the Equity Office portfolio, is 91 percent leased, with City National Bank as its anchor tenant, according to a news release.

Blackstone has invested about $40 million in the building since it acquired the leasehold in 2011, when it paid $100 million for a non-performing note on the asset. Its previous owners, Rockpoint Group and Stellar Management (which also invested about $45 million in renovations), defaulted on the office building during the market collapse.

The estate of Sol Goldman owns the land beneath the building.
