Industrious Takes Over DC WeWork for New Flex Office at The Apollo


Workspace provider Industrious has partnered with Insight Property Group and J.P. Morgan Global Alternatives to operate a new flexible office space at The Apollo, a mixed-use community in Washington, D.C.

The workspace, which was once occupied by WeWork, will total a little more than 30,000 square feet at the 431-unit building, which includes 90,785 square feet of commercial space. Industrious will span three floors of the building and feature 77 private offices and suites, conference rooms, plus multiple cafe and lounge areas.

Located at 810 7th Street NE in D.C.’s vibrant H Street Corridor, the building is situated near Capitol Hill, Union Market and Union Station. The building is owned by institutional investors advised by J.P. Morgan Global Alternatives and Insight Property Group.

“As Industrious continues to expand to meet the ongoing demand for flex in D.C., we’re adding key locations to ultimately create a strong regional network that our members can seamlessly move throughout,” Peri Demestihas, Industrious’ director of real estate, said in a prepared release. “We’re incredibly excited to join the H Street Corridor with our newest D.C. location. It puts us at Main and Main in a really exciting neighborhood, where we’re thrilled to provide an engaging new workspace environment.”

The new space expands Industrious’ footprint in the Washington, D.C., region to more than 350,000 square feet. In May, Industrious partnered with Piedmont Office Realty Trust to open Industrious Clarendon, a 40,000-square-foot space at 3100 Clarendon Boulevard in Arlington, Va. 

Retail tenants in The Apollo include Whole Foods Market, The Wydown and Fancy Radish.

The new workspaces will be available in September.
