A venture of Westbrook Partners and Korea Investment Corp. is in talks to sell the Ritz-Carlton hotel in Manhattan for $600 million. It is in discussions with Katara Hospitality of Qatar and Trinity White City Ventures, reported Bloomberg, citing people familiar with the matter.

In addition to the 259-room hotel, the Ritz-Carlton at 50 Central Park South includes a number of condos, known as the Residences at Ritz-Carlton, which are owned separately. The Residences comprise 12 stories and 80,457 square feet of the 33-story, 324,293-square-foot building, according to PropertyShark. The building was formerly the St. Moritz Hotel.
