New York City office space is being stress-tested by pandemic shock waves, remote employees, and unpredictable work patterns. It is clear that these challenges are daunting, but by no means eclipse the value of having a place to be together.
We believe in placemaking. As the nonprofit Project for Public Spaces has said: “Placemaking strengthens the connection between people and the places they share.” Placemaking facilitates creative patterns of use with a focus on social and cultural identities.
New York’s business community is activated by placemaking — by cross-connecting industries and intersecting lifestyle with workstyle. These interconnections foster vibrant ecosystems. Each micro-business district has its own sense of place defined by these connections.
