WASHINGTON — The co-working space landscape keeps getting more crowded in Washington. The latest entry is New York-based Bond Collective.
Bond Collective, which bills itself as the leader in luxury shared office space, is opening its first location outside of New York and Philadelphia at 609 H St. in Northeast D.C. It will open in the first quarter of 2019.
Its 30,000-square-foot space at developer Jair Lynch’s new H Street location will cover two entire floors with floor-to-ceiling windows, common spaces, bistro kitchens, coffee bar, working nooks and lounges.
It also includes conference rooms that can be reserved by the hour.
“We are thrilled to bring our design and hospitality-focused brand to a new market in Washington, D.C., which is known for its entrepreneurial drive and is home to some of the most successful companies in the world,” said Bond Collective CEO Shlomo Silber.
“We cannot wait to become a resource for the community and businesses to build their brands within a professional environment,” Silber said.
Other amenities include a rooftop deck, fully-equipped gym and locker room, and bike storage.
Prices range from $350 a month for standard coworking space to $900 a month for private offices. Conference rooms can be reserved for $50 an hour.
Bond Collective members also have access to its other locations in New York and Philadelphia: There are three locations in Manhattan, two in Brooklyn and one in Philadelphia.
Arlington-based coworking company MakeOffices recently announced pans for its 15th D.C.-area location in Foggy Bottom near George Washington University. Competitor WeWork is opening its first location in Maryland on the campus of the University of Maryland College Park this fall, its 12th location in the area.
Demand for coworking space in D.C. has soared. Commercial real estate firm JLL said the various players now account for more than 1.8 million square feet in the District alone, and many of them have waiting lists that span several months.
