Coworking giant WeWork is planning to open a Baltimore location in 2020, the company said Wednesday.

The space will be located at Wills Wharf (1201 Wills St.) in Harbor Point, which is the peninsula between Harbor East and Fells Point where Exelon recently opened a new local headquarters.

It’s the New York–based company’s first location in Baltimore. According to WeWork, the space will have room for more than 1,100 members.

“WeWork is thrilled to contribute to an innovative and thriving technology sector as we execute our first lease in Baltimore at Harbor Point,” Nicole Mozeliak, WeWork General Manager for the Mid-Atlantic, said in a statement. “We look forward to playing an active role in the Charm City’s growing economy and attracting new talent to this community of unlimited potential.”

WeWork, which currently has 287 locations in 23 countries, offers a mix of individual desks and private offices on flexible leasing plans. Amid big growth, WeWork has been getting closer to Baltimore in recent months. It has 10 spaces in D.C., and announced its first location in Maryland at the University of Maryland in College Park earlier this year.

WeWork won’t be the first coworking company that got its start outside Baltimore to open in Baltimore, as Amsterdam-born Spaces already announced plans to open in South Baltimore’s Stadium Square. But WeWork’s entry brings a buzzy name to the city’s coworking sector, and continues a wave of larger players opening coworking spaces that are opening around the city. Over the last few years, the Cordish Companies opened Spark Baltimore above Power Plant Live!, Betamore opened a location inside Sagamore Development’s City Garage and Johns Hopkins and the University of Maryland have each debuted sizable new innovation hubs. And there are growing communities at ETC, Impact Hub Baltimore and The Cube.

WeWork joins Jellyfish as tech-oriented tenants at Wills Wharf. The digital marketing agency recently became the first tenant to sign on for office space at Wills Wharf, which is expected to open in 2019. Along with office space, the building will also include retain and a Canopy by Hilton hotel.

“We welcome WeWork’s unique and creative energy to Harbor Point,” said Louis Haddad, President and CEO of Armada Hoffler Properties, a Harbor Point developer. “WeWork will only help to further enhance the sense of connection and community in an already dynamic environment.”
