Fast-growing WeWork is confirming that it will open a coworking space operation in Raleigh.
In an announcement published on its website, the company, which already has operations worldwide, said it will open an office at 1 Glenwood Avenue.
“[F]loors of coworking and private offices” will be offered, the company, which recently raised $500 million in investment capital, says.
No opening date nor pricing information is yet available.
WeWork says its plans call for “accommodating a community of 1380 + members in approximately 81,000 square feet.”
WeWork will work with Heritage Properties, the developer of One Glenwood, the company added in an announcement.
“We’re honored to have an innovative, forward-thinking company like WeWork choose One Glenwood,” said Ryan Blair, Vice President of Development and Acquisitions at Heritage. “It validates the project and the intent behind our design to create a modern, amenity-rich, collaborative office building in one of the city’s most desirable neighborhoods.”
Interested parties can “book a tour” to see what is coming.
WeWork will enter a market where competitors American Underground, HQ Raleigh and other sites have flourished.
“WeWork empowers forward-thinking companies from every industry to do their best work—and this new market is no exception,” the company’s announcement reads.
“We have locations in some of the most creative and business-driven neighborhoods around the world. Our shared office spaces offer everything you need and then some, from high speed internet and support staff to unlimited micro-roasted coffee and custom art. Plus, community events like thought leader talks and member happy hours connect you with collaborators in your city and beyond.”
Space for one worker to 100 employees will be available with month-to-month leases offered.
WeWork spaces are known for their wide variety of amenities.
