Excavation is underway at 141 East 47th Street, the site of a 35-story residential tower in Midtown East. The 183,310-square-foot project is designed by Ismael Leyva Architects and developed by Silverback Development. The latter was brought on by Hopson Development Holdings, which purchased the parcel for $115 million in December 2019 from the original developers, New Empire Real Estate. Located between Park Avenue and Lexington Avenue, the development is set to yield 200 units and cost $250 million.
