Virtru, a data security and privacy company, has opened its new headquarters at 1801 Pennsylvania Ave. NW in Washington, D.C. The company had signed a lease for the 17,000-square-foot space in November 2022.
Virtru’s new headquarters, called the Hub, is designed to act as the focal point of the local cybersecurity community.
“Innovation has always been at the heart of Virtru’s mission, and the Hub builds on this commitment,” said John Ackerly, co-founder and CEO of Virtru. “We designed a space that can uniquely function as a collaboration center for the District’s thriving cybersecurity community. Cybersecurity is a team sport: We need to bring many partners and customers to the table, and we look forward to facilitating those conversations across the private and public sectors.”
The Hub occupies the entire fifth floor of the 13-story office building owned by Pembroke Real Estate, and is almost twice the size of Virtru’s previous space at 1130 Connecticut Ave. NW. Having acquired 1801 Pennsylvania Ave. in 2006, Pembroke recently made several capital improvements to the building, including a revamp of the lobby; the addition of a lounge and coffee bar; as well as the fitting of floor-to-ceiling windows along the Pennsylvania Avenue corridor.
“We’re proud to have incredible companies like Virtru that are choosing to grow and expand right here in the Capital of Innovation,” said D.C. Mayor, Muriel Bowser. “At the heart of D.C.’s comeback is how we bring people back together to live, work, and play, and we’re using every tool at our disposal — including the Vitality Fund — to attract and support employers that will help us bring the people, fill the space and create a thriving downtown D.C.”
