After years of requests and off-and-on exploration, we swarmed a hive in Newburgh in January 2021.
Our home: the Wireworks building at 109 S. William St., an ambitious, multimillion dollar rehab of a former spring factory built in 1895 that sat empty for years.
Our developer partner is BOM Newburgh, a complementary team that includes Baxter, a premier Hudson Valley real estate developer and general contractor; Mapos, an award-winning NYC architecture and design firm; and Sisha Ortuzar, an award-winning NYC restauranteur and hospitality advisor who lives in Newburgh.
BEAHIVE is sandwiched between a retail space and artist studios on the lower level and bi-level loft apartments above, an ideal mission-aligned project that will bring traffic and energy and have a positive impact in the city.
Spaces for work + community + possibilities
We were pioneers in the coworking movement, and we’ve leveraged our decade-plus of experience (and that of our partners) to design a warm, comfortable, inviting, productive space to work, meet, collaborate and socialize.
Our main communal room is an open, airy space with original wood floors and huge windows facing the street. When the sun is shining it floods the space with natural light (which, studies show — surprise! — improves productivity, sleep and vitality).
Throughout we have a mix of wide-open coworking spaces, resident desks, communal desks and tables, lounge areas, personal privacy booths, meeting rooms and event space, kitchen area, sofas and armchairs. High-speed Fios fiber feeds a high-performance Ubiquiti UniFi Wi-Fi network throughout the space.
The building has a courtyard (with gazebo!), bike rack, elevator, smart lock access, security cameras (exterior and interior), and is ADA accessible.
We draw members not only from Newburgh but surrounding communities — Cornwall, Montgomery, New Windsor, Walden, Wallkill 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.
MEETING + EVENT SPACE
Because of the thoughtful design of our space, the hive of activity happening within, and our community focus, BEAHIVE is a truly unique venue for workshops, group meetings, and events.
We have two private meeting rooms, and our large communal area can be rented out for larger group meetings and select events.
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.
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.
