Douglas Development Corporations is taking over three former WeWork locations in Washington D.C. to expand its new flexible office concept The Mark.
The locations are expected to open this summer and feature brand new flooring, furniture, servers, wireless access and security systems. Additionally, users of The Mark will receive access to a concierge, networking events, a fully-stocked kitchen and more.
“The Mark is not only a solution for those looking to break free from their home offices or larger companies rethinking their corporate office spaces but also a place to learn new skills and interests, interact and support other members and companies and forge fresh relationships and ideas that move this community forward,” said Artur Samofalov, director of development for The Mark.
The Mark is just one operator that is taking over shuttered coworking spaces in the Washington D.C. region. Launch Workplaces is also taking up former MakeOffices locations in the area.
The coworking industry in the D.C. region is clearly revamping its offerings. MRP Realty recently launched a new hospitality program called Heyday Properties to improve services for office tenants. Its dashboard features tools similar to that of a hotel app, such as desk-side food delivery, staff to help plan meetings and catering, and more.
