Request a quote to see for yourself. ALX Community is located in the heart of Old Town on the Alexandria waterfront – if we were any closer to the water, we’d be swimming. With vibrant nightlife and historical attractions just steps away – you won’t find a more centrally located event space than ALX Community.

Testimonals

It’s impossible to have a bad day if you work at ALX because it isn’t just a community workplace, but a workspace that cares about the community. I feel like I can represent ALX everywhere I go in the community, whether through volunteering or chamber events. ALX is not for profit; it is for people. Specifically, our people. People who call Alexandria home, regardless of if you’ve called it home for a week or for decades. People really care about you here.
Brian Comey, Compass Real Estate
This place is just plain fun! It is hard for me to break away and allow myself to have fun. ALX has provided a positive fun environment and offers fun events. It has really been helpful in me having a more balanced life. As a sole proprietor, it is easy to feel isolated. Being at ALX I feel like a part of a larger community. It is nice to have other like-minded, ambitious, creative and kind business people around. Seeing and being around other people is energizing. Everyone is very respectful of boundaries yet at the same time very open and kind. It is fantastic to be part of a professional and dynamic community of business people. The networking that occurs is so organic. No-one seems to be out for themselves. Everyone wants to know what can I do for you, how can we work together. It has been fantastic!
Jeanne Griffen, Owner of Jeanne Griffen Interior Design
From our very first day at ALX, we've commented on the positive impact our membership is having on us and our business. This is a true community - they live up to, and FAR beyond, their name and the promises they make. The entire ALX team is wonderful - they make us feel like they care about us and our business. Jeanne and I are pleasantly surprised by the work environment, the friends we've made and the contacts we continue to generate.

I've also hosted several meetings on-site, in both my office and in conference rooms. I'm always confident that the ALX team will support me, that the space will look fabulous when guests arrive, and that their experience will reflect well on our business and on ALX. 
Sue Santa, Partner at Jeanne Griffen Interior Design
I love my membership. I have always had to commute to an office and rush hour isn't as fun as you think. I am now working at a remote job and I get to walk to work. It's so freeing and exhilarating walking to work and actually liking the office and people. There are new faces every day and seeing friendly and happy dogs makes me smile. I never expected my membership to give me the opportunity to attend great workshops and network. When my job gets stressful, I know ALX Community will be there to brighten my day.
Christine Milot, Manager of Acceleration Partners
I love ALX Community because it suits my needs precisely. I drive into DC from Alexandria every day to my downtown office and I finally reached the traffic breaking point! How many hours of good work time were lost in that commute? Minutes from home, I’m at ALX Community where I can set up every Friday and get all of my work done.

The sound proof phone booths are great for calls, there are conference rooms should I have meetings, and best of all, there are great people working at ALX Community so I never feel like I’m isolated working alone from home. Plus, compared to some other spaces I tried, nothing measures up to ALX Community's modern design and amenities. This has been a great decision for someone like me who needs a co-working space one day a week to avoid the DC traffic gridlock!
