The D.C. area’s most beautiful coworking locations, mapped

View as Map

There's a certain point where working in coffee shops or a garage just doesn't cut it anymore. That's where coworking spaces come in.

Nowadays, the nation's capital has more options than ever before for flexible working. In 2015, there were approximately 50 coworking locations in D.C. In 2016, that number increased to more than 70, and it continues to grow.

To help the working people find spaces that don't just work well, but look great, Curbed put together this map. With some of these spaces, expect amenities like fitness centers and complimentary coffee and tea. With all of them, anticipate well designed offices and meeting rooms.

The mapped points have been listed geographically, from the most northwest to the most southeast.

Curbed DC reached out to DC Workspaces, Flex Office Space, OpenGov Hub, and Halcyon Incubator for inclusion. They did not respond by the time of this article's publication.
