Neighborhood productivity space cove opens third location, on Capitol Hill

cove, the neighborhood space that's part co-work, part coffeehouse and all productivity, opened a third location last week. Located at 910 Pennsylvania Ave. SE, cove Capitol Hill spans two rowhouses and features a "comfy conference room" with couches and comfortable seating in place of a large table and boardroom chairs.
"It's House of Cards meets cove," says Adam Segal, cove cofounder, of the new location. 
As with the Dupont Circle and 14th St. locations, members of cove Capitol Hill sign up for a monthly plan (starting at $24 for 8 hours) and scan in and out of the space. "At cove," Segal explains, "you're not a member of a space. It's an extended community. You can use any location."
The company recently rolled out cove for groups, which allows team members to pool their hours and add and drop members as team member come and go. The group plan sounds a bit like a family wireless plan, but Segal says "there's no penalty if you go over your hours. You're locked in at a specific rate." 
Segal says the cove team built the group plan model with its customers in mind. "We talk to the person sitting next to us [at cove]," he says. "We get fun requests all the time. We like to develop with the community."
Some of the fun at cove is being a neighborhood partner. cove Capitol Hill has partnered with several local businesses in the area: Capitol Hill Yoga will host a class at cove during the day. Peregrine Espresso will offer 10 percent off when patrons use a cove cup. And a deal with DCanter wine boutique is forthcoming.
Want to get in on the fun? cove is hiring. They need two people for "ops-related" work, but as Segal explains, "you'll get your hands in everything, interacting with the community, making cove a great experience. We'd love to get awesome D.C. people who want to be a part of a startup and get hands-on experience."
cove Capitol Hill is open for business but will hold a formal neighborhood launch Wednesday, April 30 at 7 p.m. Segal requests RSVPs for the launch, which potential cove users can do online by signing up for a trial membership.
