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.
