The HiVE is a 9,000-square-foot collaborative coworking and event space focusing on sustainability and creativity, located in Vancouver’s historic Gastown area. The space occupies the 2nd floor of two interconnected heritage buildings and was retrofitted to provide a comfortable and healthy open-concept work environment featuring brick walls, high ceilings and large windows.
“In a panel of coworking space operators, Melissa Hope from HiVE Vancouver spoke about the specialization of shared workspaces. She gave examples of workplaces focused on architecture or female-focused. While trying to cater to everyone is never a good business plan, the diversity of options means there is something for everyone.”
