WeWork, the New York-born chain of coworking spaces, announced last week that the company has chosen a location for its ninth space in D.C. — 80 M Street SE near the Navy Yard metro. The new space will be WeWork’s first outside of Northwest Washington, D.C. (or the NoVA suburbs).

In his comments as keynote speaker at the Washington, DC Economic Partnership Annual Meeting on Nov. 18, WeWork President and CFO Artie Minson announced the space, saying that is represents WeWork’s continued investment in the District, regardless of the uncertainty surrounding the incoming presidential administration.
D.C. is WeWork’s second largest market, Minson said at the meeting.
The Navy Yard location will be 68,673 square feet spread over the first three floors on 80 M Street near Nationals Park and is slated to open in summer 2017.
Thus far, the vast majority of D.C.’s coworking spaces have been clustered in the Northwest quadrant of the city, as you can see in this WDCEP map of over 70 such spaces. That is slowly changing, though, what with this new WeWork space and Brooklyn-born coworking company The Yard’s D.C. debut near Eastern Market, also coming in 2017.-30-
