Workers have officially reached the top at Zero Irving (and formerly the Union Square Tech Training Center and 14 @ Irving ... and tech hub) at 124 E. 14th St. at Irving Place... the American flag is now flying above...
The 21-23-story building, developed jointly by the city’s Economic Development Corp. and RAL Development Services, will feature 14 floors of market-rate office space as well as "a technology training center and incubator, co-working spaces and state-of-the-art event space ... on the seven floors beneath," per the Zero Irving announcement issued last October.
Food-hall specialists UrbanSpace officially signed the lease for 10,000 square feet on the ground level last month.
The new building — long contested by local preservationists and community groups (see links below) — sits on the former site of a P.C. Richard & Son on city-owned property.
