Designing the office for the hybrid world

Spanning 59,000 square feet in the heart of midtown Manhattan, Cisco’s New York City Talent and Collaboration Center is designed specifically for the realities of hybrid work. Over 70% of the usable square footage is dedicated to collaboration, including over 90 video-enabled spaces specifically designed for collaboration, learning, and socializing.

Built on a Power over Ethernet (PoE) foundation, 100% of the lighting, shading, and environmental controls are connected to the network, enabling us to achieve new levels of manageability and breakthroughs in health and wellness, as well as contributing to Cisco’s corporate goal of reaching net zero emissions across our value chain by 2040.*

Most importantly, when combined with other technology elements, such as Cisco Catalyst networking solutions, Cisco collaboration devices, Meraki cameras, and Cisco Smart Workspaces, the New York City Talent and Collaboration Center is a digital real estate platform that continues to delight employees and visitors alike.

* By reducing our absolute Scope 1, 2, and 3 emissions 90% compared to fiscal 2019 and neutralizing any remaining emissions by removing an equal amount from the atmosphere
