🚨 You need to know

The Motley Fool Inc. has been one of the big staples of Carlyle’s office space, but the Washington Business Journal reported the investment firm is scaling down its Alexandria headquarters.

The firm is located ta 2000 Duke Street and leases 114,000 square feet, but the Washington Business Journal said its dropping to around 34,000 feet — reducing the office down to a single floor.

Remote working is apparently the reason behind the office downsizing. The news comes after a similar downsizing was announced last year for the nearby U.S. Patent and Trademark Office.
