The Beehive is SoLa Impact's Opportunity Zone (OZ) business campus and is the nation's first of its kind. The campus is comprised of 92,000 square feet of commercial space located only ten minutes south of downtown Los Angeles. With six unique and architecturally beautiful red-brick warehouses. This project will transform the local neighborhood and economy in the true spirit of the OZ legislation as the nation’s first OZ business campus.

Among current Beehive tenants are the first Black-owned craft brewery in California, a Black-owned and designed art gallery for South LA emerging creatives, and a state-of-the-art Technology and Entrepreneurship Center to develop the future tech leaders of South LA. The Beehive is also home to the creative office space of SoLa Impact.

Join us on March 31 for an in-depth tour with SoLa Impact's Director of Construction George Ashdown and Director of Community Engagement April Sandifer.
