Brickyard coworking to open new space in Prince William County
Friday, October 5, 2018
The Prince William Board of County Supervisors is pleased to announce Brickyard, Northern Virginia’s coworking community provider, will open its second location in Neabsco Commons, Woodbridge, Virginia. Brickyard will receive $400,000 towards office equipment and tenant improvements through a new public-private partnership agreement. The brand new location marks the first of its kind in the County and is expected to open in summer 2019.
Recognizing the County’s robust federal contracting and defense technology sectors, as well as an emerging entrepreneurial class they have sparked, Brickyard identified the unmet need for those businesses and professionals to be physically accessible to their clients, while also providing flexibility to operate remotely. Its new Neabsco Commons location, with easy access to nearby federal installations, proximity to Interstate 95 and U.S. Route 1, will provide the ideal location and venue from which small businesses and entrepreneurs can operate effectively.
“We are excited to welcome Brickyard and look forward to a long-term partnership of growth and success in the County,” said Corey A. Stewart, Chairman, Prince William Board of County Supervisors. “This reaffirms our continued pledge to provide a dynamic and diverse business community that supports small businesses, encourages entrepreneurship, drives innovation and generates new opportunities,” Stewart added.
Ann Orem, Managing Director Brickyard said: “Brickyard is more than a workplace, it’s a community that fosters connection and collaboration amongst its members, that provides resources and amenities to fuel the growth and success of the individuals and businesses it serves.”
“When we were considering where to locate our next facility, Prince William County was the obvious choice. The confluence of its talented workforce, enhanced by its cutting-edge educational institutions and its large military veteran population (the county and environs is home to over 180,000 highly trained military veterans); its strategic location; robust infrastructure; and supportive business climate, makes a compelling business case and is frankly the secret to its success,’ Orem added.
“We are delighted to welcome Brickyard to Prince William County and specifically to the New Woodbridge,’ said Frank Principi, Woodbridge Magisterial District Supervisor. “Strategically located between the nation’s capital and the state capital, Brickyard’s newest coworking community space provides convenient access to both cities – and everything in between, delivering a new infrastructure, innovation and integration for anyone in the process of starting or growing a business.”
“We believe Brickyard will be an excellent addition to our already successful project, Neabsco Commons, which is uniquely suited to meet the modern and community-orientated working lifestyle of today’s marketplace,” said Michael Collier, President, Uniwest Companies. “The favorable blend of co-working space, retail, residential, and nearby hotel accommodations, all within walking distance to one of the nation’s largest community colleges and regional workforce training center provides a strong foundation for a dynamic ecosystem set to spur further economic growth.”
