Cove shuts down K Street location

Borderstan first reported the news. We talked with the chain's city manager to learn more.

Local coworking chain cove shut down operations at its K Street location this week.

A first sign seen on the door of the space (and subsequently posted to Twitter) was vague as to whether this is a permanent state of affairs, but local blog Borderstan also noted that the location at 1990 K St. NW is no longer listed on cove’s website.

“Unfortunately I can confirm the sad news that cove K St has been closed,” D.C. city manager Robby Goldsberry told Technical.ly in an email. “We spent the summer making a series of improvements to coves across the city — upgraded workstations, more call boxes, and separate focused and social sections for different kinds of work styles — and ultimately decided that we didn’t think we could bring our K St location up to our standard for the best member experience possible.”

This is something we wrote about in November — how cove is attempting to diversify its appeal by creating social space as well as quiet space.

“We’ve learned a tremendous amount from operating our first downtown location,” Goldsberry continued, “and its closing will enable us to focus on future growth and locations that deliver the full member experience. We are excited to extend cove’s offering to new neighborhoods and communities in 2017.”

It’s also worth mentioning that, even with cove closing, the K Street corridor is hardly a coworking desert. WeWork and MakeOffices both recently opened locations along the famous strip.
