WASHINGTON — Arlington-based MakeOffices continues its expansion in the D.C. region, with a new location at 2000 Pennsylvania Ave. NW.

It will be MakeOffices’ 10th D.C.-area location and 15th total.

The Pennsylvania Avenue MakeOffices will take just over 40,000 square feet on the building’s seventh floor. Construction begins early next year and will open in mid-2019.

MakeOffices was founded in Arlington in 2012. It has since expanded to Chicago and Philadelphia.
It competes with several other co-work space companies in Washington, including WeWork and The Cove.

“This is a significant location for us, as it creates synergies between our successful K Street, Dupont Circle, and Wharf locations in the D.C. market and further enhances our ability to pursue regional enterprise business,” said MakeOffices CEO Zach Wade, referring to the upcoming Foggy Bottom location.

MakeOffices recently opened its ninth D.C.-area location in May in Glover Park.

It also has co-working spaces at The Wharf, K Street, Dupont Circle, Logan Circle, Bethesda, Reston Town Center, Clarendon and Tysons, and a total of five others in Chicago and Philadelphia.

The Foggy Bottom addition will bring the total amount of office space MakeOffices leases in the D.C.-area to more than 340,000 square feet.

The Washington Business Journal recently reported that competitor WeWork leases nearly 533,000 square feet in the District, making it the largest private commercial tenant in the District.
