NEW YORK CITY-Tech has been one of the primary forces behind the Midtown South submarket’s ascendancy into one of the industry’s hot topics of conversation, said experts gathered for the latest in the Real Estate Board of New York’s Commercial Crossfire panel discussions. “Until recently, New York didn’t have a tech industry because of high prices, but now they’re coming back and there’s a big push to have more collaborative and efficient spaces available with flexible, month-to-month contracts,” said Mark Lapidus, director of real estate operations at WeWork.

Held this past Tuesday, the panel was organized by Christel Engel and James Caseley from REBNY’s Commercial Board of Directors. The discussion was led by moderator Keith Turco, president of Gyro Advertising, and included: Lapidus of WeWork; Debra Larsen, founder and president of WorkHouse NYC; Jake Schwartz, CEO of General Assembly; Ryan Simonetti, co-founder and principal of Convene; and Jeff Sussman, EVP with Edward J. Minskoff Equities.
