Uber Technologies, Inc. Key Developments

Uber Technologies Inc. Plans to Relocate into D.C. Headquarters

Uber Technologies Inc. is planning to relocate later this fall into a much larger D.C. headquarters, less than two years after it moved into its current space near Dupont Circle. The company signed a lease earlier this year with Bentall Kennedy for just shy of 73,000 square feet at 1717 Rhode Island Ave. NW, a roughly 157,000-square-foot office building next to the Cathedral of St. Matthew the Apostle near Scott Circle. It is planning to relocate from about 14,000 square feet at 1875 Connecticut Ave. NW. It was also structured so that Uber will have room to grow, initially occupying about 55,000 square feet but with plans to fill out the full 73,000 square feet over time.

Uber Reportedly Plans To Raise As Much As $1.3 Billion

Uber Technologies, Inc. is looking to expand that funding round to as much as $2.5 billion, the Financial Times reports. In August 2015, Uber announced it had closed a $1.2 billion funding round for its China branch.

Uber to Expand to 100 Additional Cities in China

Uber is speeding up its expansion plans for China, as it aims to enter 100 additional cities in the country over 2016. The company entered the country over a year ago, bringing its ride-hailing service to major cities including Beijing and Shanghai.
