WeWork is planning to open another space in Chinatown

Located around the corner from its first D.C. location, it will be the coworking giant's eleventh location in the area.

WeWork’s latest expansion in D.C. will give the coworking giant a second location in one neighborhood.

The company recently signed a lease to take the top three floors of 777 Sixth St. NW in Chinatown, according to a release from Transwestern, a real estate firm which represented landlord Bentall Kennedy. The announcement indicates that’s enough room for 900 desks. An opening date hasn’t yet been set.

WeWork’s initial location in the District is around the corner at 718 Seventh St. NW. The new location will be its 11th in the D.C. area. As of last year, D.C. was the company’s second-largest market outside of its hometown of New York.

“WeWork has been successful at their nearby 718 Seventh St. location, and adding another Chinatown location at 777 Sixth St. was a logical choice,” said Zach Boroson, Vice President of JLL, which represented WeWork.

The new space comes after WeWork announced that its D.C. space near the White House would be the first location outside of New York for Flatiron School, a coding academy it acquired last year. News also came last week that Georgetown University is set to open a dedicated space for students within that facility.
