UPDATED, Sept. 23, 3:30 p.m.: NoMad is getting yet another skyscraper. An entity affiliated with Israeli-Russian billionaire Boris Kuzinez filed plans Friday for a 54-story mixed-use tower at 262 Fifth Avenue at West 29th Street, according to a permit application.

Kuzinez bought the site and two neighboring lots for $59 million earlier this year, as The Real Deal previously reported.

The new filing lists Yoram Barel, who works for Kuzinez’s company, as the owner’s representative.

Plans call for a 150,018-square-foot building, including 41 apartments and 10,850 square feet of retail space in the basement, first and second floors.

A duplex will occupy the full fifth and sixth floor, while the seventh through 21st floors and 23rd through 36th floors will each feature a full-floor apartment. More duplex apartments are planned for the 38th through 45th floors. The building will also include a pool, gym and outdoor area on the fourth floor, the filing shows.

Once a mid-rise neighborhood, NoMad has seen a flurry of skyscraper construction in recent years.
