Silverback Development Breaks Ground on New Project With Traditional Chinese Feng Shui Ceremony Led by Master Pun-Yin

NEW YORK, NY – New York-based real estate owner, developer and investor Silverback Development recently broke ground on its new project at 131 East 47th Street with a traditional Chinese Feng Shui ceremonial blessing led by Master Pun-Yin, the building’s Feng Shui consultant.  

Master Pun-Yin is a revered practitioner who has worked on many notable projects in New York City, including the revitalization of Times Square and Columbus Circle in the 1990’s. This ceremony marked the start of construction on Silverback Development’s newest premium residential tower in the heart of Midtown Manhattan.

Located between Lexington and Third Avenue, the building will feature 191 apartments as well as approximately 2,700 square feet of commercial space at its base. Once complete, the 455-foot tower will offer a variety of floorplans. Additionally, the project will incorporate state-of-the-art technology such as touchless features, UV lighting, and air purification and filtration, among other post-COVID-19 technological innovations.
