14th @ Irving: 254,000-square-foot $250M Tech Hub Coming to NYC’s ‘Silicon Alley’ #MakerBusiness

Fast Company reports on the newly proposed ’14th @ Irving’ project, a plan to build out a 254,000-square-foot (or 5.8 acres!) “fully integrated innovation hub” adjacent to NYC’s Union Square, one of the top 5 busiest stations in the city of five boroughs.

Until now, New York City’s technology community has led a nomadic existence—meetups in startup lounges strewn with pizza, incubators operating out of empty corporate cubicles. There were opportunities to learn, make connections, and find work, but they were often hidden in the gated warrens of “Silicon Alley,” a loose term for the corridor connecting the city’s Flatiron District, Union Square, and Chelsea.

A new 254,000-square-foot project, steps from Union Square and scheduled to break ground in 2018, could change all that. Dubbed 14th @ Irving, it will feature classrooms and meeting spaces on the lower floors and flexible office space, designed for early-stage companies, spread across a dozen higher floors. At street level, there will be a food hall for New York-based startup vendors, managed by Urbanspace. (Current tenant P.C. Richard & Son is consolidating and will occupy the basement.)
