The interactive, immersive, and integrated workplace experience offered at the home of the first WaveOffice location starts from the moment you walk in the door. Named after the connectivity embodied within the design, The Hub at 1615 L Street intentionally utilizes nearly every inch of its 420,000 square feet to embolden customers from the beginning to the end of their workdays. Carr Properties has always been focused on creating an all-encompassing experience rooted in connection, balance, and wellbeing. Today, we are highlighting how those tenets shine through at The Hub to give WaveOffice customers the resources necessary to thrive in every aspect of life.
Nestled amongst the hustle and bustle of Washington, D.C.’s Central Business District, The Hub’s convenient location between the L Street and 16th Street thoroughfares fosters a sense of connectivity both within and outside the building’s walls. With a perfect Transit Score of 100, The Hub is only three blocks away from Farragut North and Farragut West Metro stations, giving customers easy access to the city’s expanses. The neighborhood hums with activity as Farragut Square attracts food trucks, yoga, and other pastimes for the lunchtime crowd, and cafes and delis line L Street to give customers a plethora of dining options within walking distance.
However, the fun is not limited to the streets. Customers are met with a sprawling lobby that includes a bar and café operated by Michelin-star chef Nicholas Stefanelli, soft seating amongst lush greenery, and a technology lounge with A/V capabilities. Workspaces are strategically placed along the open corridor and nooks, giving customers varying degrees of privacy. At The Hub, stepping away from your desk is easy and enjoyable, and the lobby ensures your productivity never skips a beat.
There is always somewhere to work away from your suite, as The Hub’s communal spaces expand upward onto the third, fourth, fifth, and sixth floors with more than enough room for all. The third floor boasts a library that is continuously refreshed with the latest books and board games. A large conference-style table allows the entire team to collaborate with ease, while individual chairs offer customers seclusion if they wish. The fourth floor is optimal for individual focus time with high-top seating, the fifth floor is perfect for a call with private booths, and the sixth floor is ideal for a lunch with multiple sets of two-person and four-person table and chairs – all with outlet stations to keep your devices charged and keep you moving.
If that was not enough, the reception area of the sixth floor WaveOffice suite is decorated with comfortable seating and chairs, verdant plants, and speakers lightly playing . The kitchen is only a short walk away with craft coffee options, a Bevi machine, and all the kitchen appliances necessary for meals in the office. Communal tables allow for WaveOffice customers to create a sense of community and network amongst one another, ensuring that lunch does not have to be a solo ordeal, if you do not want it to be.
However, we know that not all conversations are communal. That is why multiple soundproof phone rooms line the WaveOffice corridors, giving you confidence that any confidential discussion remains only in the ears of the desired recipients.
At The Hub, there is a place for every meeting. Two conference rooms within the WaveOffice suite sit up to 12 people and are fully equipped with A/V technology, giving your team the space to collaborate when needed. Plus, an online reservation system enables you to book each conference room at the drop of a hat. For larger meetings, The Hub offers a reservable conference center for up to 120 guests, equipped with A/V technology, restrooms, coatracks, and a counterspace with a refrigerator.
Wellness is just a walk downstairs, as the first floor houses the state-of-the-art fitness center and spa-quality locker rooms with showers and towel service. Cardio and strength equipment provide excellent variety for individual workouts, while the yoga room is often scheduled with fitness classes available for the entire building.
If your idea of wellness is centered around fresh air with a view, you might find yourself upstairs. The rooftop terrace is activated with high-top seating, lounge chairs, soft seating, and worktables – all within sight of the monument and the bustling Central Business District.
However, we know that time can be a luxury in the workday – and not every day has the time for a break on the rooftop or fitness center. With Sweetgreen Outpost on the first floor, The Hub offers customers free Sweetgreen delivery through the Carr Experience App – so even on your busiest of days, you will not go hungry.
This is just a glimpse of what Carr Properties’ The Hub has to offer its WaveOffice customers. With an incredibly central location, lively lobby, newly renovated terraces, and flexible private suite options, The Hub’s WaveOffice gives customers the resources to thrive both in and out of the workplace and companies the space to build their brand identity with confidence.
