MakeOffices‘ recent D.C.-area expansion will continue into 2019. The McLean, Va.–based coworking company is planning a new location in Foggy Bottom.
According to the company, the 40,000 sq. ft. space will be located on the seventh floor of 2000 Pennsylvania Ave. It will have 90 offices, as well as 50 open desks. The location is expected to open in mid-2019, with construction starting early next year.
The coworking space is part of a larger project to revitalize the building, which also includes retail and restaurant offerings dubbed “The Shops at 2000 Penn.” George Washington University selected MakeOffices owner MRP Realty and Westbrook Partners and completed a long-term lease deal last month, the Washington Business Journal reported.
MakeOffices CEO Zach Wade said the location will provide opportunities to tap into bigger businesses and organizations located nearby. Being located near George Washington University, which sets up the potential for a “university-to-coworking pipeline to help fuel current and future entrepreneurs.”
“We’re thrilled to serve the corporate, professional services, non-profit, legal, media and creative companies, as well as those who do business with the nearby IMF and World Bank, all of whom covet this location with its unparalleled access to D.C. and the surrounding markets,” Wade said in a statement.
