Brookfield Place collaborated with For Five Coffee Roasters to bring customers a Limited-Edition Honey Oatmilk Latte, made with honey sourced from BFPL’s ten rooftop bee hives!
Brookfield partnered with Alvéole, who helps bring nature into cities across the globe and to make urban agriculture a normal part of city life. Bees are a vital part of our ecosystem and urban communities. Providing a safe place to build their hives on our office property rooftops benefits not only the bees themselves, but also our communities. Bee colonies flourish in urban areas as they require an environment that fulfills three criteria: the absence of pesticides, an abundance of water and floral resources, and a temperate climate. Alvéole assists businesses, schools, and various organizations meet their engagement and sustainability goals by bringing bees to their building. The Brookfield Place office property rooftops are a ideal, safe place for our pollinators to call home.
In New York, our partnership with Alvéole has delivered 10 hives at Brookfield Place and 2 at MetroTech in Brooklyn, which contribute over 600,000 honey bees to the city’s ecosytem. With an additional 24,000 eggs being laid each day, our friendly pollinators are just get started – and so are we! Our program is rapidly expanding in markets across our portfolio.
