Façade installation is now complete on Zero Irving, a 21-story mixed-use building at 124 East 14th Street in Union Square. Designed by Davis Brody Bond and developed in partnership by RAL Development Services and Junius Real Estate Partners, the 176,000-square-foot structure will yield affordable and market-rate office space for technology firms as well as a three-floor education and training center, a tech incubator, co-working spaces, and a 10,000-square-foot food hall managed by Urbanspace. Suffolk Construction is the general contractor for the project, which is located along East 14th Street between Broadway to the west and Third Avenue to the east.
Recent photos show the fully completed curtain wall, which is composed of floor-to-ceiling glass with ornamental and functional mullions, double-height glass boxes at the western edge, and a cantilevered metal cornice at the top of the structure.
The top 14 floors will offer market-rate office space. The lower floors contain affordable office space for small companies, the training center, tech incubator, co-working spaces, event space, and food hall.
The massing sets back above the 13th floor, making way for an outdoor amenity terrace with large planters, a gaming area, seating, and clear views of the neighborhood. Tenants will also have access to a 14,000-square-foot event and conferencing venue, a full-service fitness center with lockers, showers, and bike storage.
JLL has served as the leasing and marketing agent for the property since last year. Today, building tenants include B2B payment platform Melio, digital financial services company Laurel Road, and business intelligence software developer Sigma Computing, with more to be announced.
