On this week’s Tech Talk Radio, Emily Wright and Lucy Alderson bring you two podcasts from New York as Real Estate Tech week kicks off in the city.

First up, Emily visited the new Sandbox space at the Zaha Hadid Residences to speak to Related Companies’ Greg Gushee about the launch of this tech education space. As the man behind the concept, Gushee said that he hopes other developers will follow suit and that a plethora of fresh, new maker spaces will emerge around the world.

A dual space incorporating a public area as well as one reserved for residents at 520 West 28th Street in New York, Related Companies’ The Sandbox space has been created to help encourage people, and children in particular, to learn about all aspects of technology.

“It’s like a Soho House for mad scientists in one way,” said Gushee. “But equally we want spaces like these to be open to everyone so we have our public area too.”

Then Lucy met with Carlos Valverde, VP real estate development at Silverstein Properties to talk about bringing fresh tenants to the World Trade Center site, the power of tech and why developing in New York is a “headache.”
