ALX Community opening third coworking space in Old Town

ALX Community is expanding with the September 1 opening of a new coworking office in Old Town.

More than a third of the 15,000-square-foot office at the Atrium building at 277 S. Washington Street has been booked, and among the tenants are the city’s tourism bureau Visit Alexandria, which is leaving its office at 1 Prince Street.

“We have found that the need for collaborative, flexible mixed-use space is growing, and we’re thrilled to be able to offer that,” ALX Community co-owner Kelly Grant told ALXnow. “We want to be known as the best local coworking space in the area.”

The new location includes meeting spaces and a rooftop lounge with 360-degree views.

The company, which is the only dog-friendly coworking office in town, launched in the spring of 2019 at Founders Hall (106 N. Lee Street), which ended up getting rented out by Compass Realty. The second location at 201 N. Union Street opened not long after, and is now nearly booked, Grant says.

“What we have learned during the pandemic is that we all need to be at an office every day,” she said. “I’m honored that people think so much of our community to help it grow.”
