The HIVE MISSION is to design and build an affordable, sustainable, inhabitable work of art as a community. By redeveloping an open inner city property and up-cycling the humble and strong steel shipping container, we propose to create a dynamic village for thriving cultural exchange and enterprise. Inspired by artists, creative professionals, and environmentalists, we will work in partnerships with individuals and organizations to experiment and discover the next generation of responsible building and living practices. We plan to offer an increasing variety of tenant uses, including office, studio, retail, restaurant, entertainment, and residential opportunities. We hope to replicate or adapt HIVE in other locations around the world. HIVE is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization.
