The 30,000 square foot former WeWork location in Washington D.C. is situated on the H Street corridor and plans to open in September, when many companies plan to return to the office. The three-story space takes up 10% of Industrious’ expansion across the Washington D.C. area
With this new space, Industrious has 350,000 square feet of space in the market, with two more additional locations in the works.
According to Maury Stern, principal at Insight Property Group which has helped Industrious with the transaction, the inclusion of the coworking space will complement the Apollo’s amenities. They include a Whole Foods Market, restaurants, an on-site cafe, a rooftop pool, fitness facility and more.
The space is getting a routine set of renovations, but Industrious is also redesigning it to include 77 private offices.
“The vast majority of our members are private, closed-door members,” said Peri Demestihas, director of real estate at Industrious. “People are comfortable with the private offices where they know who they are working around and have their own health protocols, they were kind of safer during Covid protocols and now you have a little more control with them.”
