Last month we announced a new hive in Peekskill, less than 2 months in the making. And now, just under 2 years in the making (or 6, depending on how you look at it), we can announce…
We’re returning to Kingston!
We first opened a hive there in late 2009 and then closed it in early 2012. This time we’ve partnered with RUPCO, a housing and community development nonprofit.
We’ll be in The Lace Mill, a $16 million renovated 112-year-old, 70,000-square-foot building once known as the United States Lace Curtain Mill, now an affordable housing complex for artists.
“We are bringing to fruition the concept of creative placemaking by creating homes where people can live and work and helping to transform Midtown into a place where people want to be,” says Kevin O’Connor, RUPCO’s CEO.
BEAHIVE Kingston will grow our community and our physical presence to 4 hives, stretching 100 miles along the river from Peekskill to Albany through the Hudson Valley.
We expect to accept members late summer. Stay tuned as we finalize the launch plans.
