Connectivity and collaboration are major themes of the campus design—i3 is 100 percent wireless, highly flexible, and contains a variety of settings that enable mobility in the workplace — each employee has an assigned workstation but are encouraged to work anywhere on campus where they feel most comfortable to collaborate with their peers indoors or outdoors. The buildings include over 65 private huddle spaces, a multitude of meeting rooms with a variety of styles, and several quiet zones for concentration. Key sustainability attributes include on-site fuel cells, a bio-filtration system, green roofs atop all three buildings, and recycled water for cooling towers and irrigating the site.


    WeWork’s mission is to build more than beautiful, shared workspaces and services for entrepreneurs, freelancers, startups, small businesses and large enterprises – they want to build communities. Strategically located near the bustling Gaslamp District, the WeWork 600 B Street location offers a prime address in the center of downtown San Diego. Here you’ll tour the 85,000-sf, six-floor workspace that features private offices, collaborative workspaces, event space, phone booths, an outdoor terrace, a stage and bar setup, conference rooms, printing stations, onsite community management, and onsite parking and bike storage.
