WeWork will open its Crystal City location in early November, according to an email sent out by the company to its member network.

“This November, WeWork will open six new locations – including our very first Portland space in the historic and beautiful Custom House,” the email stated. “We’re also adding new spaces in cities we already know and love: Times Square and Penn Station in New York City, Crystal City in Northern Virginia, Aldgate Tower in London, and Sarona in Tel Aviv.”

Earlier this year, the communal office developer and Vornado/Charles E. Smith received approval to convert Crystal Plaza 6, a vacant office building in Crystal City at 2221 S. Clark Street (map) into two floors of co-working office space with 216 micro apartments on the upper floors. WeWork representatives would not confirm to UrbanTurf as to when the residential portion of the project will open.

As the floorplan below shows, most of the residential units will be studios, ranging in size from 300 to 315 square feet. There will be several “neighborhoods” scattered throughout the building, which will consist of expansive common areas, commercial-grade kitchens, and dining areas, key aspects of the WeLive concept that WeWork is launching in DC and New York.

Because Crystal Plaza 6 is eventually slated to be torn down as part of a long-term development plan for the area, the residential and office uses are ways to utilize the building for the next 20 years or so.
