Washington D.C. has one of the fastest growing coworking markets in the U.S., with over 80 locations that stretch 2.3 million square feet. Here are some of the most notable firms that have opened up shop in the nation’s capital.
WeWork leads the pack as the fastest-growing provider in the area. It recently leased an entire building at Rhode Island Avenue. It is also planning to open a new location at Meridian at Anthem Row, marking its 16th location in the metro area.
Premier Workspace has leased the fifth floor of a building on 2001 L Street, its second location in D.C.
Novel Coworking has acquired an entire 12-story building in Dupont Circle for $73.6 million.
San Diego-based firm CommonGrounds Workplace also leased its first D.C. locations as part of its national expansion.
In addition to the numerous coworking locations that are expected to open, the D.C. metro area had a strong quarter of venture capital funding for startups.
