A new co-working and flexible office space has opened in Crystal City.
Hana, a subsidiary of the real estate company CBRE Group, announced on Thursday that it has opened a new location at 2451 Crystal Drive — a stone’s throw away from two of Amazon’s temporary office spaces for HQ2 employees.
The opening announcement comes one year after it was first reported that property owner JBG Smith would be partnering with Hana.
With the National Landing spot, Hana makes its debut on the East Coast and establishes its third location in the U.S.
CBRE has established other flexible working spaces in Dallas and Irvine, Calif. Three other locations are expected to open in the first quarter of 2021: New York City, Philadelphia and Berkeley Heights, NJ.
Hana has initially opened one floor totaling more than 39,000 square feet. The floor includes private office suites and conference and events spaces, in addition to a traditional co-working spce.
“JBG Smith has worked with Hana to deliver a flex solution that meets the unique needs of the building and National Landing area by providing plug-and-play workspaces, on-demand meeting rooms and overflow accommodations,” said Hana CEO Andrew Kupiec in a statement.
In a statement, JBG executive David Ritchey said Hana’s approach, and its abundance of amenities, complements the other co-working spots in Crystal City while addressing “the need for flexible, ‘on-demand’ office space solutions in a post-COVID-19 business environment.”
The opening also comes amid the announcement that co-working rival WeWork will be closing its Crystal City location, which is just a block or two away.
Other existing co-working spaces in Crystal City include Accelspace and Eastern Foundry.
