For Young DC Companies That Are Over Co-Working, 1725 DeSales Offers Room To Grow With Style
Office space should not get in the way of innovation.
When overbooked conference rooms and a limited number of private offices become a distraction, shared office spaces can start to hinder growth. While co-working fulfills a need in the startup market, once those companies stabilize, expand and pay for more square footage, value starts to flatten, Entrepreneur reports.
Moving comes with its own complications. Commercial real estate leasing has not kept up with the times, remaining a difficult, time-consuming process. Combined with expensive custom build-outs, smaller teams are often stuck in co-working spaces, unable to get a place of their own.
1725 DeSales is a post-co-working opportunity that blends convenience with an exciting vibe, cool design and great food downstairs.
Gould Property Co. has created a space specifically for businesses that have survived the startup phase and are looking to expand their operations. In pre-built innovation labs, DC's brightest entrepreneurs can forge their own brand identity steps from the White House, in the coveted Golden Triangle Business Improvement District.
For commercial brokers, 1725 DeSales presents a compelling solution for delivering premier and affordable space for their clients. Gould’s newly launched fast-lease program allows brokers to quickly close a deal.
Tenants could sign a lease and move in all on the same day.
Coming from shared offices, new tenants will be stepping out of the shadow of large co-working brands to design a workspace that reflects their companies' individual personalities. To make that process easier, 1725 DeSales offers an interior branding program: Art of the Office.
Each tenant receives a consultation with Citizen Creative, a graphic design firm specializing in large-format graphics and interior branding signage. After finalizing the image idea, the design team coordinates production and installation of the graphics, from logo designs on the floor-to-ceiling glass entry to personalized wall graphics at reception and in conference rooms.
In between building a world-class brand, tenants can take advantage of a world-class restaurant concept.
Le DeSales is the brainchild of Michelin-starred chef Raphael Francois, offering modern French cuisine and signature cocktails from Lukas Smith of Cotton & Reed Distillery. Le DeSales is Francois' first U.S. restaurant, and represents French food with a youthful, rebellious twist.
Steps from Le DeSales and the tech suites, tenants have access to downtown DC's best bars, shops and dining venues.
Between the Farragut North and Dupont Circle metro stations, 1725 DeSales sits on a prime location that hosts 85,000 professionals every day. Clients can take advantage of the 24/7 valet parking and explore the neighborhood.
The Golden Triangle has become a nexus for the growing DC tech scene. 1725 DeSales is at the center of a district that places downtown Washington on par with Boston’s Route 128, Austin’s South by Southwest and Silicon Valley's startup cultures.
After raising venture capital funding, a strong corporate identity is essential for a young company's continued success. For DC teams of 15 to 20 staff looking for 2,500 SF to 3K SF to grow and further define themselves, 1725 DeSales represents the next step in their journey.
Gould is hosting an open house on May 4 at noon. Le DeSales will be open to attending brokers. RSVP by April 28.
