Living Social Seeks New Space

Living Social makes a lot of headlines around these parts - it was only last week that we reported that their future headquarters at 918 F Street had been cited for improper permits. We've now learned they are already looking for new digs.

The Washington Post reports that Living Social is looking for 350,000 square feet (that's over ten times the size of Filene's, which will be vacant soon) to fill with ball pits, skeeball, (and of course some work space too).  Right now the outfit is split over three separate buildings here in Penn Quarter.

There have been reports that suburban counties have tried to lure Living Social's massively expanding footprint beyond the beltway, but CEO Tim O'Shaughnessy has confirmed they'll be staying within the District.  We are liking Penn Quarter's new designation as "Silicon Hill," and we hope Living Social won't go far.  Maybe City Center can make space for them?
