Savanna landed a $176 million construction loan from Deutsche Bank for its planned Morningside Heights condominium building.
The German lender provided the financing for the 170-unit project at 525 West 122nd Street, property records filed with the city Friday show.
A representative for Savanna declined to comment.
The private equity firm paid $96 million in early 2016 to buy the property and air rights from the Jewish Theological Seminary in a deal that provided the institution with funds to renovate its existing buildings.
Savanna plans to build a 32-story building spanning a little more than 451,000 square feet.
