Developer Morris Moinian’s Fortuna Realty Group officially filed plans Thursday for his Ismael Leyva-designed hotel at 1150 Sixth Avenue in Midtown with a few slight revisions to the project’s size and scale.

The 310-key hotel will reach 38 stories and span more than 138, 000 square feet, according to permit applications filed with the Department of Buildings.

Amenities are to include a guest spa and lounge area on the lower floors, as well as offices and meeting rooms. There will also be a restaurant, lounge and outdoor area on the ground and cellar levels, while the second floor will house a ballroom.

Rooms will start on the fourth floor, which will hold six guest rooms. There will be 10 hotel rooms on each of the fifth through 34th floors and four penthouse suites – which are expected to feature “expansive” rear terraces — on the 35th floor. A rooftop bar with garden terraces will top off the 36th floor.

The filing shows somewhat different plans than expressed by Moinian earlier this year, when he announced that Leyva would be designing the building. At the time, Fortuna said the building would climb 40 stories and total 162, 000 square feet. Initial renderings for the project released last year, meanwhile, indicated the hotel would stand 37 stories.
