In partnership with Alvéole, The Crossing Clarendon is excited to announce our Honeybee Hive.
Located on the rooftop of our Cheesecake Factory building, we look forward to raising awareness of the honeybee contribution to our urban environment.

The Crossing Clarendon existing hive will be producing honey just in time for Thanksgiving. We look forward to sharing the sweet reward of their hard work with the greater Clarendon Community.
What about stings?
Don’t fret! Bees really aren’t interested in human beings. They have one goal, and one goal only: to collect nectar and pollen from flowers within a 3 mile radius of their hive, and bring it back to ensure the colony’s development. Plus, bees die when they use their sting. It causes them to lose their stinger and a part of their abdomen - meaning they really have no interest in doing so, unless they feel their colony is threatened.
Take flight with Alvéole!
Our project is realized in collaboration with Alvéole, a social beekeeping company. Since 2013, Alvéole has partnered with hundreds of companies and schools on beekeeping projects. Each hive creates greater ecological awareness, allowing city dwellers to reconnect with nature and adjust their sense of responsibility towards the environment. This season, discover the ties that bind us to bees and the flora and fauna that surround us, right here in the city.
