Hines employees at Santa Clara Towers have partnered with Alveole, the urban beekeeping company, to contribute to the building’s sustainability goals and bring a unique element to the property. The hives will generate approximately 60 pounds of honey that will double as a fun tenant relations opportunity – tenants will receive gift baskets with a jar of honey, candles and soap all produced on site.
Property Manager Tatiane Martins said, “The decision to bring in the urban beehives came organically as we are passionate about sustainability and the opportunity to engage our tenants in our sustainable practices. The experience has certainly challenged us to BEE brave!”
The LEED® Gold property is raising the bar as the only building in Santa Clara to produce honey.
