WASHINGTON, May 11, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- MakeOffices, an innovative platform where the workplace meets the sharing economy, announced today its newest "collaborative collisions" coworking community at 3100 Clarendon Blvd. Opening on June 1, MakeOffices' new location is at the center of Clarendon's bustling shopping and entertainment district, and conveniently located above the Clarendon Metro station. The 40,000-square-foot space will be MakeOffices' largest open location in the DC area, contributing to the company's mission of providing runway for rapidly growing companies to expand.
"All roads in Arlington County lead to and from Clarendon, whether you're looking to live, work, or play," notes MakeOffices CEO, Raymond Rahbar. "Clarendon is called home by many young entrepreneurs and high-achieving professionals, and MakeOffices gives them the place to meet across the table to share ideas and grow their businesses."
MakeOffices' Clarendon coworking community features 135 offices and 454 desks, 10 call rooms, eight conference rooms, two wellness rooms, a relaxation room, and five audiovisual booths. Its centerpiece is a large communal area comprising a kitchen and event space that can host 70 seated and up to 150 at a reception-style event.
The urban village atmosphere of Clarendon is in perfect harmony with the collaborative energy infused in every MakeOffices community. Arlington's original downtown has become the hub of the city's shopping, dining and entertainment scene, featuring a mix of single-family houses, townhouses, high-rises, storefront retail, rooftop bars, restaurants, and high-end grocery chains. The 3100 Clarendon Blvd. building is a midcentury, pear-shaped design that features curved offices and gathering areas. MakeOffices' renovation pays homage to this design history with updated state-of-the-art technology and spaces that promote productive collaboration. The design creates an optimal coworking environment conducive to getting work done privately as well as networking with like-minded professionals. Bold rooftop signage will herald MakeOffices' presence in the community.
