WeWork will be opening its first Baltimore location in 2020 at Harbor Point. The coworking space provider will take two floors at Wills Wharf, currently under construction, and is expected to accommodate a community of more than 1,100 members.
“WeWork is thrilled to contribute to an innovative and thriving technology sector as we execute our first lease in Baltimore at Harbor Point,” said Nicole Mozeliak, WeWork’s General Manager for the Mid-Atlantic. “We look forward to playing an active role in the Charm City’s growing economy and attracting new talent to this community of unlimited potential.”
At Wills Wharf, WeWork will join the digital marketing agency Jellyfish, and Baltimore’s first Canopy by Hilton hotel, located on the top four floors. The 12-story, 330,000 square foot waterfront building will feature 236,000 square feet of class A office space.
“This is an exciting announcement for all of Baltimore, not just Harbor Point. Introducing dynamic new entrants, like WeWork, to this market helps Baltimore to grow and spurs continued positive development,” said Michael Beatty, President, Beatty Development Group. “We’re thrilled that WeWork is making an initial entry to Baltimore, and honored that they selected Harbor Point as hopefully the first of several locations throughout the City.”
“We welcome WeWork’s unique and creative energy to Harbor Point,” said Louis Haddad, President and Chief Executive Officer of Armada Hoffler Properties. “WeWork will only help to further enhance the sense of connection and community in an already dynamic environment. We are excited that WeWork has chosen Wills Wharf for its first Baltimore location.”
Wills Wharf is a joint development by Beatty Development Group and Armada Hoffler Properties.
