Our flagship hive opened in May 2009 right in the heart of Beacon’s Main St in the artisan-renovated, iconic 1907 Telephone Building.
As pioneers in the coworking movement we’ve leveraged our years of experience to create a warm, comfortable, inviting, productive place to work, meet, collaborate and socialize.
Our main coworking space is a wide-open, first-floor loft with exposed brick walls, maple floor, soaring ceiling, and nine large windows facing south, east and west. There’s a mix of communal desks and tables, and lounge areas with a sofa and armchairs. It also functions as an event and meeting space.
When the sun is shining it floods the space with natural light (which, studies show — surprise! — improves productivity, sleep and vitality). And all that light feeds a whole bunch of plants sprinkled throughout (because — surprise! — plants are good for you, too).
Upstairs we have a handful of private offices (which we call resident studios), a couple more resident desks, a full kitchen, and a light-filled meeting room — with more plants! — available to both members and non-members.
Over the years we’ve drawn members from Beacon and surrounding towns — Newburgh, Fishkill, Cold Spring, Cornwall, Garrison, Wappingers Falls, Pawling, Poughkeepsie and beyond. See our current members and our 2009 Founding Members.
In May 2019, exactly 10 years after our founding, we swarmed a second Main Street location with 7 private studio offices on the top floor of a charming 1880s building.
Just an 8-minute walk from the flagship with all its amenities and vibrancy — and a 10-minute walk from the train.
COLD SPRING ANNEX
Opened in early 2022 and much like our Beacon annex, this one is focused on resident studios. We have 7, all with windows.
We’re in the entirety of a one-story building just off of Main St in the village of Cold Spring, a 15-minute drive down Rt 9D from our Beacon flagship — and a 10-minute walk from the Cold Spring train.
Our all-inclusive “resident studios” are suitable for 1 to 5 or more people and include 24/7 access to shared lounges and open coworking spaces, kitchen, meeting rooms, equipment, and amenities.
We have 19 studios spread across our flagship and the Beacon and Cold Spring annexes.
MEETING + EVENT SPACE
We’re more than a member shared workspace. We’re also an event and meeting space, available to rent.
Because of the dramatic features of the building, the hive of activity happening within, and our community focus, BEAHIVE is a truly unique venue for workshops, group meetings, events, and film and photo shoots.
DAY PASS / $25
Just passing through and need a place to work for a day (or two or three)? You’re welcome to buy a Day Pass and get access to communal spaces (by appointment). Contact us first to make sure we can accommodate you.
If you love us as much as we know you will and decide to become a member (within a month of your Day Pass), we’ll roll the cost of the Day Pass into the membership fee.
We encourage potential members to schedule a visit, check out the space and the other members, and then choose the membership plan that works for you.
