“The entire D.C. metro area has seen a meteoric rise in startups looking to call this area home base,” Michael Beretta, a vice president at Spaces’s parent company IWG, said in a prepared statement. “As a result, we’ve seen an increase in demand from businesses of all sizes that are looking for flexible working solutions.”

The Loft features three floors of office space with 14-foot ceilings above two levels of retail, per the release. Spaces will occupy 66 percent of the building across two floors and open later this year.

Tom Boylan, a senior vice president of Meridian Group, called Spaces “one of the world’s most innovative coworking companies,” in a prepared statement. “Spaces specializes in building creative workspaces, and The Loft will be a perfect home for this dynamic company.”

Terry Reiley, Anna Faktorow and Rosanne Richards of CBRE (CBRE) represented Meridian Group in the deal while Jennifer Ziegler and Jake Katz of JLL represented Spaces. The brokers did not return Commercial Observer’s request for comment.

Located within walking distance of the Greensboro Metro station, the first phase of The Boro, spanning 1.7 million square feet, will be featured nearly 700 residential rental units and 260,000 square feet of retail, including a Whole Foods and Kerasotes ShowPlace ICON Theaters, Commercial Observer previously reported. At full completion, the development will comprise more than 1,500 residential units, 1.9 million square feet of office space, 350,000 square feet of retail and a 250,000-square-foot hotel.
