Prince William County has awarded co-working space provider Brickyard $400,000 to open a new location, only its second, at Neabsco Commons in Woodbridge.
The Board of County Supervisors has approved an agreement between Brickyard and the county's Industrial Development Authority that will deliver a grant to be used for office equipment and tenant improvements. Brickyard, the brainchild of Ann Orem and venture capitalist Paul Singh, opened its first location in Ashburn in 2016.
Singh is no longer affiliated with Brickyard.
Orem, Brickyard's managing director, said in a release that Prince William was chosen for its talented workforce, educational institutions, large veteran population, robust infrastructure, strategic location and "supportive business climate." Its specific location, 2700 Neabsco Common Place, is adjacent to the Northern Virginia Community College Woodbridge campus and the Regional Center for Workforce Education and Training.
The 7,110-square-foot space will include 14 flex desks, 10 dedicated desks and 20 private offices. Brickyard will also provide dedicated desk space, at no cost, for a county employee and an employee of the Flory Small Business Development Center.
Memberships at Brickyard start at $149 a month for access to a workspace and conference rooms during normal business hours, while $299 a month nets you a dedicated desk and all-day access. The top membership of $1,199 a month gets you a private office.
Brickyard Woodbridge is expected to open next summer.
