Adi Chugh of Maverick Commercial Properties (formerly Maverick Capital Partners) brokered the financing. He could not be reached for comment, nor could representatives for Tessler. Condo inventory loans are secured by a project’s inventory of units.

The 33-story, Karl Fischer-designed property at 172 Madison is almost complete, with a temporary certificate of occupancy expected this spring, according to a source familiar with the property. The projected sellout as of January, according to documents filed with the New York Attorney General, is $307.7 million for its 72 units. The building includes a little over 4,300 square feet of ground-floor retail space,  which has 18-foot-high ceilings, and another 2,000 square feet of below-grade space.

Compass took over sales at the project from Keller Williams NYC earlier this month. Billy Goldstein, Compass’ managing director of new development, said about 60 percent of the units are under contract. Current listings are averaging about $2,200 per square foot, according to StreetEasy.

In May 2014, Tessler secured about $141 million in financing for the project.
