New York’s Silicon Alley has landed a deal to build a new 21-story hybrid workspace called the NYC Tech Hub.
The space will be home to an incubator, skills training center, and office for technology startups.
The NYC Tech Hub will be the second incubator and office space that focuses on the technology industry, marking a significant shift of office spaces as coworking and flexible offices become king.
Currently, Brooklyn alone has about 30 different types of coworking spaces and now, many technology clusters have been forming in what is being marketed as Brooklyn’s Tech Triangle which are almost certain to become future tenants. Still, Manhattan has proven to be the city’s technological focus.
So why aren’t other boroughs seeing such growth in this successful sector that are supported by the city? Many nonprofits have worked to broaden the tech skills gap throughout the city, but they are still unable to achieve the scale seen in Manhattan.
There are still ways to incorporate plans for such tech hubs in every borough of the city, such plans for proper office allocation, capital projects, community development, and coworking and incubator creations.
