Flex by JLL has opened a 39,000-square-foot coworking location in Arlington, Va., under the Orchard Workspace by JLL brand. The flex office provider will occupy the space at a 398,329-square-foot building owned by JBG SMITH.
JLL Property Management’s Flex by JLL team will manage and operate the space, that will feature team suites for up to 50 members, private offices accommodating between one and 35 people, virtual office plans and meeting rooms. Members will also have access to building amenities, such as an on-site child care center, sport club, cafes and dry cleaning facilities.
Completed in 1990, the 11-story building has 40,000-square-foot floor plates and is LEED Silver certified. Other tenants at the property include Huntington Ingalls Industries and U.S. General Services Administration, according to CommercialEdge data.
Located at 2451 Crystal Drive, in Arlington’s Crystal City neighborhood, the property is off Highway 1, roughly 5 miles from downtown Washington, D.C., and 4 miles north of Alexandria. It is also directly adjacent to the Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport and surrounded by numerous retail options.
Demand for coworking space is still strong
The addition of this location expands the company’s footprint in the region, joining the one in Reston, Va., and with plans for further growth in the area, Head of Flex and XM by JLL Jacob Bates stated in prepared remarks. In a recent interview, Bates told Commercial Property Executive that demand for enterprise-grade flex office space is expected to keep growing in the near future. He also mentioned that 93 percent of JLL’s corporate occupier clients use coworking spaces.
