Stranded European travelers set up in new Downtown co-working space

April 20, 2010 05:53PM

The Hive at 55, the Downtown Alliance’s shared workspace at 55 Broad Street, welcomed 11 stranded employees from a Denmark-based creative media agency today as they waited out the lingering volcanic ash cloud that has paralyzed European air travel this week. The workers, who wrote on their blog that they had traveled to New York City for last week’s “99 Percent” conference at the Times Center, set up shop at the 4,000-square-foot space that was set up last year with financial support from the city’s Economic Development Corp. and landlord Bill Rudin. The Hive, which was intended for the media industry, has space for upwards of 30 people and offers a kitchen, lounge and conference room in addition to desks and private offices. Membership ranges from $25 per day to $500 per month. TRD
