The reinforced concrete foundations for Davis Brody Bond‘s 21-story tech hub at 124 East 14th Street is taking shape and climbing toward street level. Located just east of Union Square, the development is officially known as the Union Square Tech Training Center. The 254,000-square-foot project will include a mix of affordable and market-rate office space for tech companies, retail, and dining facilities managed by Urbanspace. Private entities RAL Development and Suffolk Construction are also part of the project team.

Recent photos show the current state of the property, where the concrete formwork and steel rebar are steadily making progress. Most of the visible work is seen toward the back of the perimeter. An outline of a staircase at ground level is visible, while a couple of excavators are sitting near the front of the active construction site.

The exterior will feature a transparent curtain wall on the main northern elevation and include several stacked sections of double-height ceilings on the western corner of the superstructure. These spaces appear to have a mix of colors as depicted in the main nighttime rendering. The main profile also features a couple of setbacks, and a roof terrace looks to top the project.

The New York City Economic Development Corporation expects the Tech Training Center to create over 600 construction jobs and an additional 550 permanent positions by 2020. The closest subways are the L, N, Q, R, W, 4, 5, and 6 trains at the 14th Street-Union Square station. A number of food and retail options abound in the neighborhood including the Whole Foods Market to the west and Trader Joe’s right next door to the east.

A completion date for 124 East 14th Street has been posted for spring 2021.

  1. “A number of food and retail options abound in the neighborhood …”

    You know, there is an abundance of college grads with English degrees in the city who would probably be happy to help clean up your blog post messes at very affordable rates. Just sayin’.

    It’s a shame they didn’t build a basement space for a new, much larger Trader Joe’s. That Unions Square over-used location should be avoided at all costs.

  3. Lol, scandal with deblasio donors from RAL and Suffolk. And no “affordable” office space…lol
