The Brooklyn-based company has nine locations in New York, as well as one space in Philadelphia, one location in Boston that opened in November.
A party dubbed ELECTRICD is planned Thursday night, Dec. 7, to officially open the space.
The expansion comes amid a series of coworking openings in D.C. this fall, including a new Spaces in Rosslyn, cove’s latest space in Dupont Circle and the entrance of Philly-based Benjamin’s Desk to the local market via merger with 1776.
