The flexible co-working space WeWork has opened its doors in Ballard in the new development on the corner 15th and Market.
Spread over the 5th and 6th floors of the new building, WeWork joins Target, Polyclinic and Equal Exchange Coffee at 1448 NW Market St. The workspace is large, with over 1,508 total desks available in the 76,500-square-foot space.
Each WeWork is unique, and the designers chose to incorporate Ballard’s maritime and Scandinavian history into the interior fixtures and art. The community bar is lined with buoys, and the neon signs in the lounge are “abstractions derived from the shapes and patterns of maritime flags,” WeWork interior designer Raechel Schofield said.
WeWork Ballard is the 18th location in the Puget Sound area, with three more spaces set to open in the near future.
