MakeOffices is continuing to expand in the D.C. area. The coworking company opened its ninth location in Glover Park, a northwest D.C. neighborhood which is home to American University and the U.S. Naval Observatory.

The MakeOffices at Glover Park location has 30,000 square-feet of coworking space with 57 private offices and 40 dedicated desks. This expansion will be MakeOffices’ fourteenth location overall, as the company also has a presence in both Philadelphia and Chicago.

The coworking company has been on the move lately, opening its flagship location at The Wharf in February and it is now looking at renovating the Dupont Circle location to bring the space up to new standards.

It also comes as players like Industrious, The Yard and Spaces are expanding in the D.C. area

For MakeOffices, the new location is “a true diversification of our growing portfolio,” said MakeOffices CEO Zach Wade in a statement about the new location at 2201 Wisconsin Avenue NW.

“It is the most residentially-located MakeOffices space to-date, yet it strategically serves as a creative hub for aspiring entrepreneurs and startups coming out of nearby Georgetown and American University,” Wade continues.

MakeOffices’ other eight office locations are in high density areas like Tysons Corner or K Street. The company sees bringing the concept to the Glover Park neighborhood as a way to lure people from their home offices and a way to break into the “surban” market—or rather, a suburban area is highly walkable and offers access to retail shops alongside its housing.

MakeOffices teamed up with Gensler to design the interior space, as it did for the location at The Wharf. The Glover Park space also has four conference rooms, four team rooms, five AV booths, and a designated recording room. The location also features two wellness rooms and a relaxation room, with two massage chairs it acquired from local startup Restin.

The Glover Park location has onsite parking, and through its “passport program,” members can use any of the other eight locations in the region.
