Israeli developer plans 54-story NoMad tower

Permit application calls for 150K sf building at 262 Fifth Avenue


NoMad is getting yet another skyscraper. An entity affiliated with Israeli developer 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, a native of Latvia, 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.

Correction: An earlier version of this story misidentified Boris Kuzinez as a Russian billionaire.
