Our flagship hive opened in May 2009 in the heart of Beacon’s Main Street in the iconic Telephone Building. In June 2023 we relocated into a completely gut-renovated 4,000 sq ft space down the street (6 Eliza St).
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 plant-filled flagship features an open, airy communal lounge and kitchen with huge storefront windows facing Eliza St. It’s dotted with a sofa and lounge chairs and work tables and borders multiple meeting rooms and privacy pods — available to both members and non-members. The lounge also functions as an event and meeting space.
There are 14 private offices (aka resident studios) throughout and a separate desk den with 10 resident desks and even more large windows.
Over the years we’ve drawn members from Beacon and surrounding towns — Newburgh, Fishkill, Cold Spring, Cornwall, Garrison, Wappingers Falls, Pawling, Poughkeepsie and beyond.
Why is BEAHIVE spelled funny?
It’s a cute reference to Beacon, NY (Bea-hive, Bea-con…).
The original Beahive opened in 2009 in the heart of Beacon’s Main Street in the iconic Telephone Building.
Our all-inclusive “resident studios” are suitable for 1 to 4 or more people and include 24/7 access to shared lounges and open coworking spaces, kitchen, meeting rooms, equipment, and amenities.
We have 14 studios in our flagship and another 7 in our Cold Spring annex.
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 thoughtfully designed space, 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.
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).
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.
COLD SPRING ANNEX
Opened in early 2022 our annex 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.
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.
