LEDC @ WeWork

Written by

After calling Adams Morgan home for more than two decades, the Latino Economic Development Center (LEDC) relocated its DC office at 2316 18th Street NW to the WeWork Wonder Bread Factory in the Shaw neighborhood at 641 S Street NW. The move comes on the heels of recent changes to the organization.

“Our organization is growing and changing. As part of smart growth efforts, we are excited about LEDC’s new move.” said Marla Bilonick, Interim Executive Director. “We are looking forward to working in a beautiful and efficient work space at WeWork and to providing our clients with quality service in a functional and attractive environment. We are an entrepreneurial organization and joining other entrepreneurs in the dynamic WeWork space seems like a logical step.”

WeWork is a community for creators, transforming buildings into collaborative workspaces that provide infrastructure, services, events and technology so members can focus on growing their businesses. The move to the WeWork Wonder Bread Factory location is on trend with DC’s recent initiatives on creating and fostering collaborative work spaces.

In February of this year, WeWork established their first location in Chinatown and launched their second location in a repurposed Wonder Bread Factory, in March. The two DC locations are accompanied by 17 additional locations in New York City, SanFrancisco, Los Angeles, Seattle and Boston.

LEDC joins other non-profit members in the WeWork collaborative DC space. In addition to the DC flagship, LEDC has office locations in Wheaton, MD and a small business satellite office in Baltimore, MD.
