TransitScreen celebrated its recent move on Thursday night. The smart cities company sought out the new headquarters after outgrowing previous space in 1776, Technical.ly DC reported last month. It’s now part of a new incubator program.

As guests mingled at a restaurant below, communications manager Rachel Karitis, gave us a tour of the office on 1725 Desales Street.

The new office space features a lobby – complete with, you guessed it, a TransitScreen – as well as a meeting room, kitchen, and open floor office. Across the street is the Mayflower.

“There is a parking garage, too,” said Karitis. “But none of us drive.”

Most importantly, the new digs have space for TransitScreen’s 14 full-time employees in D.C. It also contains space for 10 to 20 more people, according to CEO Matt Caywood. The growth comes as the company is adding more partnerships for its real-time display of transit options in a given area.

The new office space is owned by Gould Properties, a local real estate company. TransitScreen leases their share as part of an incubating program for mid-level startups that are too big for traditional incubators, but not big enough for a downtown office.

Having just finished the move-in process, attendees at the celebration were happy. Caywood said the lease is for several years, and represents “a commitment to being in D.C. and being part of D.C. Tech.”
