Washington DC Co-Working
Our nation’s capital is also one of the world capitals for people who are looking to make every minute count in their new home. DC people—be they transplants or old-timers—have never had more options when it comes to finding their own little spot inside the beltway to hit the grindstone and accomplish something big. This is all thanks to the co-working space industry, which is making big moves in the DC area.
What Are My options?
It should come as no surprise that the co-working juggernaut WeWork has made DC one of its major bases of operations. WeWork DC today runs 11 locations in the city, running from the very heart of the District and Arlington, to Tyson in Virginia.
At these co-working locations in DC you can opt for a dedicated desk, which is all yours and is set aside for you at the location. If that’s not to your liking, you can opt for a “hot desk,” which is a guaranteed work spot somewhere in the location anytime you come in. You can also get yourself a private office, which are usually priced at a certain amount per person per month.
Industrious also runs 2 popular co-working spaces in the DC area—one in the city at Thomas circle and another up in Bethesda.
If you’re a little further out in the DC area, Launch Workplaces runs 5 co-working spaces in Maryland, including in Bethesda, Edgewater, Gaithersburg, Rockville, and Towson.
Simply put, DC has a ton of co-working locations to choose from, you just need to find the shared office space that works for you.
What Are the Prices Like?
The rates for a co-working space in DC depend on location and—perhaps even more so—the amenities you require. The price for a dedicated space will always be higher than a shared space, and a private office is always going to be on the highest section of the spectrum.
Take a look at WeWork DC for instance. A “hot desk” at the Tysons, Va. location will cost you only $300 per month, while that same set up at the “White House” location on G street will run $350 per month. If you’re looking for a hot desk at the Wonder Bread Factory location on S Street NW, it’ll cost you $390 per month. A private office can also vary in price from $670 per person per month at the M street location, to $1,520 per person per month at the White House location.
At Industrious, the options are a bit more limited—the only option is a shared space desk at $450 per month. When it comes to a private office though, the downtown location stars at $780 per month for one person, as opposed to $693 for one person at the Bethesda co-working location.
With Launch Workplaces, the prices are much different at various locations. For instance, at the Edgewater office, offices start at $500 per month, and conference rooms are $30-50 per hour, while at the Gaithersburg location, private offices start at $950per month and shared desks at $200 per month.
When looking at the price tag, it’s wise to keep a few more considerations in mind. For instance the commute. A few dollars a day here or there won’t make much difference in you’re stuck in traffic both ways. In addition, you really have to click with the place. After all, if it doesn’t feel right, there’s only so comfortable you can expect to feel there.
What Does My Co-Working Space Provide?
Feel free to separate the world into 2—inside your co-working space, and the outside world. Co-working spaces in DC take you out of the noise and mayhem of the rat race and allow you to set up in a quiet, productive environment that is designed to help you maximize your production.
These spots also tend to have a beautifully-crafted aesthetic that will have you whipping out your phone to get some pics of your current location. It’s the furniture, the art, the aspirational and stylish surroundings full of fresh coffee and refreshing beverages that you have to go check out for yourself.
