The Wharf has slowly but surely been solidifying its reputation as a destination since it opened in Southwest DC this past October, with a fancy new music venue, restaurants galore, and high-end shops and apartments. Now there’s another attraction: a really big coworking space.

MakeOffices just soft-opened a massive new 43,880-foot coworking space at 800 Main Avenue, SW. The Arlington-based company launched in 2012 and has locations in DC, Philadelphia, and Chicago. The Wharf location is DC’s eighth and largest location, occupying the second and third floors overlooking the main entrance to The Wharf.

Designed by architecture and planning firm Gensler, the space features 99 offices total, in addition to 48 bullpen desks, and a variety of specialty spaces, including seven conference rooms, ten call rooms, six audio-visual rooms, five team rooms, and even a recording room. The location is also furnished with two wellness rooms and two relaxation rooms. Pricing ranges from $325 a month for an open desk to $850 a month for an office.

MakeOffices is the latest in a string of new creative coworking spaces to land in the District, landing after initial renderings of The Wing, Georgetown’s highly anticipated women-only coworking space, went public last week. Other co-working spaces include popular giants like WeWork and homegrown businesses like BUREAU, Locale, and workFlow.
