DC-area entrepreneurs will have more resources to tap into very soon. Within the next two months, WeWork will be opening two coworking locations within the District. Their first location will launch in Chinatown on February 1st, and their second location will launch in the Shaw neighborhood (in a repurposed Wonder Bread Factory) on March 1st.
WeWork has already set up spaces in NYC, San Francisco, and LA with new spots launching in Seattle, Chicago, DC and Boston. Some of the amenities include organic coffee, craft beer, and a games lounge. They also have a partnership with ZipCar to help with transportation needs. Besides the fun stuff, they offer dedicated desk space starting at $400 per month and private offices starting from $525 per month. All memberships are month-to-month, so no need to commit to a lengthy contract. Network memberships are $45 a month and include access to the digital network, ability to book daily desks and conference rooms, and invitations to events at any of the WeWork locations.
The spaces will also be available for meetups and events within the DC Tech community. The Chinatown location will have the capacity to hold 400+ and the Wonder Bread location will be able to accommodate up to 700. These will be some of the largest coworking and event spaces dedicated to entrepreneurs in the DC area.
Another thing that makes the WeWork spaces so unique is their attention to interior design. They have made it a priority to create beautiful and modern spaces where people can get inspired, focus on their work, and take a well-deserved break. In the coming months, they will have 17 locations in seven cities across the country with two of them right here in DC. They will no doubt be an exciting addition to the community.
Carl Pierre, formerly of InTheCapital, is the DC City Lead for WeWork.
