Behind the Buildout: The Making of Workbar Arlington, Vol. 2

alt= "workbar arlington"

It’s beginning to look at lot like a coworking space in the historical building at 1167 Massachusetts Ave. Impressive stonework gives style and structure to the ample front yard, and the newly fleshed-out interior is quickly coalescing into  Workbar Arlington.

Newly checked off on the To Do List is the external lighting, stonework,  insulation,  and the floor troughs for power boxes.  Stay abreast of  our progress, including an interview with the mural artist, on the Workbar blog. Until then, here are the latest photos of the work(bar) in progress.

Whenever possible, the charismatic accents of the building have been left intact. Here, a touch on the ceiling.
