MakeOffices to Open Flagship Coworking Space in Clarendon on June 1

MakeOffices, the Arlington-born coworking company that recently expanded to Chicago and Philadelphia, will be opening its new flagship location in Clarendon next month.

The 40,000 square foot space, on the second floor of the 3100 Clarendon Blvd office building, is set to open June 1.

“Clarendon is called home by many young entrepreneurs and high-achieving professionals, and MakeOffices gives them the place to meet across the table to share ideas and grow their businesses,” said MakeOffices CEO Raymond Rahbar.

The new office — the company’s second in Arlington, in addition to its original Rosslyn location — will be MakeOffices’ largest in the D.C. area. It will have 135 private offices, 454 desks, 10 call rooms, eight conference rooms, two wellness rooms, a relaxation room and five audiovisual booths.

“Its centerpiece is a large communal area comprising of a kitchen and event space that can host 70 seated and up to 150 at a reception-style event,” notes a press release. That kitchen will offer complimentary coffee, tea, fruit and, yes, a selection of three beers on draft. Also free: office-wide WiFi, conference room rentals and printer access.

The 3100 Clarendon Blvd location affords views of the Clarendon Metro station, easy walks to restaurants and bars and even a direct underground connection to the Clarendon Metro station. (That connection was sealed off while the high-security Defense Intelligence Agency was the building’s office tenant.)

MakeOffices is competing with the likes of WeWork in the booming coworking sector.

Like WeWork and other, smaller competitors, MakeOffices offers its members flexible month-to-month leases that allow small companies to grow and large companies to host teams without the need to build out an office or sign a long-term lease. Thanks to copious amenities, collaboration among members and other factors, coworking spaces have developed a reputation for producing happier employees than traditional offices, with their typical rows of cubicles and lack of beer.

Despite its large size, MakeOffices expects its new Clarendon location — which is still under construction and just beginning to host hardhat tours — to fill up quickly. (ARLnow.com is among the companies that will have an office there.)

Pricing for a single desk in the space starts at $300 per month, while private offices start at $700 per month. (Offices with a view cost a bit more.) Potential tenants can schedule a tour online.
