“WeWork is excited to officially open its doors in Decatur at 120 West Trinity Place,” Errol Williams, WeWork vice president of the Atlantic region, said in the release. “…We were drawn to Decatur’s dynamic environment from day one, and we look forward to providing the city’s purpose-driven workforce with flexible workspace solutions that will allow companies to pivot and grow with ease.”

WeWork 120 West Trinity Place features lounges, conference rooms, and private offices. In addition to WeWork’s amenities such as high-speed internet, business-class printers, private phone booths, meeting spaces with conferencing A/V, on-site staff, and more, this location also offers bike storage and a wellness room. “In response to COVID-19, WeWork has reimagined the workplace with enhanced cleanings, modified layouts, upgraded HVAC systems, and helpful signage,” according to the release.

“One of the primary goals of our ‘Open for Business’ campaign has been to spur economic growth by attracting new businesses to Downtown Decatur, so we are thrilled to celebrate the opening of WeWork,” Chris Sciarrone, chair of the Decatur Downtown Development Authority, said in the release. “At a time when COVID-19 has led many to reconsider what an office should look like in 2020, this will give forward-thinking businesses the opportunity to have a flexible, physical footprint in Decatur.”

The building was constructed on a 4.7-acre site once owned by DeKalb County but acquired by the Decatur Downtown Development Authority (DDA) in 2013 with hopes of redeveloping the location. Atlanta-based developer Cousins Properties purchased the property from the DDA in 2016 and began construction on a mixed-use development with 329 housing units, 18,000 square feet of retail and restaurant space, a parking deck and the four-story building. WeWork and the City of Decatur announced in 2019 that WeWork had leased all three floors of office space at the mixed-use development.
