‘WeLive’ in Crystal City is ‘Beta Testing,’ Preparing for May Opening

WeLive, the residential venture from co-working company WeWork, has been getting lots of national press attention this week.

Most of that attention has been focused on WeLive’s recently-opened lower Manhattan location. But the company has a second location, here in Arlington, that’s preparing to officially open in just a few weeks.

WeLive Crystal City, located in the floors below WeWork at 2221 S. Clark Street, is currently home to some intrepid “beta testers.” The space will be “formally launching” in “early May,” the company told ARLnow.com earlier this week.

WeLive has been compared to college dormitory life, with its shared, furnished living spaces — each with “beds and couches, towels and linens, and everything in between,” plus a bathroom and kitchen — and array of planned social activities. But private apartments with three or more bedrooms are also offered.

Other features include premium cable, HDTVs, high speed Wi-fi, a laundry room, a communal chef’s kitchen, a yoga studio, a full-time community concierge and housekeeping team and “all the coffee, tea, and beer you can drink.”

“WeLive is a new way of living built upon community, flexibility, and a fundamental belief that we are only as good as the people we surround ourselves with,” WeLive says on its website. “We know life is better when we are part of a community that believes in something larger than itself. From mailrooms and laundry rooms that double as bars and event spaces to communal kitchens, roof decks, and hot tubs, WeLive challenges traditional apartment living through physical spaces that foster meaningful relationships.”

The Crystal City WeLive is offering pricing well below that of the Manhattan location, at least through the end of April. A bed in a shared living space starts at $875 per month, while a private unit starts at $1,795 per month.
