Hong Kong-based Gemini Investments is in contract to buy a Chelsea bank building and an adjacent walkup for $53 million, according to a statement. The combined lot at 531-539 Sixth Avenue has enough air rights for a 60,000 square foot apartment building.

In the larger of two deals signed last week, Gemini paid $42.4 million for the single-story, 14,000 square foot retail building 531-537 Sixth Avenue. The building, once home to an HSBC bank branch, is vacant. Eva Usdan, Rebecca Colin and the Samuel Flug Colin 2004 Legacy Trust are the sellers.

Gemini also bought the adjacent, four-story retail and apartment building 539 Sixth Avenue from an unnamed seller.

Gemini Investment Holdings is a public real estate investment company. Its stock is listed on the Hong Kong Stock Exchange.

Eastdil Secured’s Adam Spies, Doug Harmon, Adam Doneger and Brett Siegel represented the seller.
