Best Coworking Space

Eight stories above Wilson Boulevard is a 20,000-square-foot office space for people without offices. Specifically, it’s a place where entrepreneurs, gig workers and small startups can pay a modest rent (open desk memberships start at $250 a month) for access to modern conference rooms, workstations, office equipment, private VLAN and Wi-Fi networks, and a place to think. Bonus: the light-filled hub also provides concierge services, a rooftop terrace, bike storage, locker rooms, showers and coffee. Site director Julie Manning contends the Ballston location—which opened in June and is one of nine TechSpaces nationwide—could be part of the solution to Arlington’s ongoing office vacancy problem. “Flexible space is a huge positive because it starts the circle of life [for small companies],” she says. It’s a point of pride when a startup outgrows the coworking environment and relocates to larger digs. “I think it’s really important to keep these…growing companies within Arlington.”
