Second Spaces opens for entrepreneurs and businesses in Washington DC.

Second spaces to open in washington

After Spaces NoMa, Spaces Thomas Circle is the second location in the US capital, and it’s moments from the White House.

At first glance, Washington DC is a magnet for traditional industries. The legal firms and governmental bodies of the US capital lean towards using conventional rather than flexible office space. But, despite the prominence of these types of companies, the US capital is on the brink of a flexible working boom. And Spaces Thomas Circle has launched right on time – bringing a vibrant new option for Washingtonians seeking dynamic flexible working space.

According to real estate and investment management firm JLL, Washington DC ranks seventh among the top ten US cities expected to see a surge in demand for flexible working in 2019. This is down to the large number of non-profits, political advocacy groups, freelancers and new tech companies setting up shop in the North American capital – all of them seeking flexible working space.

Spaces in the heart of DC

Spaces has chosen Thomas Circle district for its second location in the US capital – an area known for its landmarks, shops and excellent restaurants. As well as being a short stroll from the business activity of Downtown, it’s just around the corner from the White House.

“Spaces Thomas Circle is the first co-working space of its kind in DC,” says Donald Eib, Area Sales Manager for Spaces. “With more than 200 private offices and just over 5,000 square feet of collaborative space, we have a bit of something for everyone. Thomas Circle is just a few blocks away from the White House but also close enough to Downtown – so you’ll never miss your favourite happy hour again.”

Washington, start your collaborations

The new Spaces is designed to be conducive to collaboration – from its glass-walled office space to the inviting 12th-floor café deli. Active types will love the state-of-the art gym with Peloton bikes and the bamboo floor yoga studio, which make it easy to combine fitness and career goals.

But the cherry on top has to the be… well, the top of the building. “We offer a penthouse deck with views of the Washington National Monument, which is perfect for taking in the Fourth of July fireworks,” says Eib.

A wide aim for greatness

Expansion into the greater DC area is definitely on the cards for Spaces. “With Thomas Circle as our second DC Spaces – our fifth in the DMV (Greater DC) area – I think we will see a shift from the more traditional offices to a more open concept in the next few years,” says Eib. “We are also working on city-wide networking events to further expand the collaboration efforts.”

In the meantime, Spaces Thomas Circle will build on the buzzing community of entrepreneurs that want to be in the heart of the US capital – building connections and basing their business right where the action is.
