Michael Shvo, Howard Lorber’s New Valley and Bizzi & Partners’ soaring condominium at 125 Greenwich Street will house 275 units – nearly 150 more than early renderings for the Financial District tower indicated.

The Rafael Vinoly-designed tower will rise 91 stories with 275 condos spread over 306,312 square feet, according to an offering plan filed with the Attorney General’s office and reviewed by The Real Deal. Prices were not disclosed, but units will range in size from a 403-square-foot studio to a three-bedroom pad measuring 3,625 square feet. The top two floors will have two units each.

Projected operating expenses for the condo tower will top $4 million, according to the offering plan.

Early renderings circulated in the fall of 2014 indicated it would have 128 units, with 10 full-floor penthouses. A 10,600-square-foot duplex was to occupy the top floor. The developer said plans were subject to change.

According to published reports, the building is expected to rise more than 1,000 feet, down from 1,356 feet as was initially reported. Plans filed with the Department of Buildings, however, describe an 876-foot tower.

Shvo partnered with a group of investors, including Bizzi and New Valley, to arrange $240 million of equity and debt for the acquisition and development of the site in 2014.

The developers paid $185 million for the site, where Fisher Brothers and the Witkoff Group had planned a 956-foot-tall rental tower. Shvo and Bizzi are currently looking to raise $175 million for the project through the EB-5 program, which gives foreign investors a U.S. green card in exchange for a $500,000 investment.

In addition to 125 Greenwich, Shvo and Bizzi, along with partner Halpern Real Estate Ventures, are also planning a Renzo Piano-designed, 242,000-square-foot condominium building at 100 Varick Street. The building will house 115 condo units.
