The protection and preservation of our environment and community is a core value at Livingston Place. We are proud to bring you our corporate responsibility platform that serves to improve the environmental and social performance of our buildings. The resources listed on this page have been created to help tenants understand our sustainability program, and how you can help make your workplace a clean, green and more enjoyable space to work.

Alveole Beehives

As part of implementing QuadReal’s sustainability commitment, Livingston Place hosts thousands of bees in the two beehives  installed on the building rooftop. With this sustainable initiative, we are proud to take part in the great movement for more eco-conscious cities.

Urban beekeeping has increased as a response to a significant and constant decline in domestic honeybee colony numbers in North America. Bees pollinate more than 130 varieties of fruits and veggies around the globe – that’s a third of our food supply.

Our thousands of bees pollinate the urban flora that surrounds during the summer. At the end of the season, we harvest the honey, which we share with our community. During winter months hives are covered for hibernation and the bees will comfortably stay in the warmth of their hive, where they’ll maintain an internal temperature of up to 35 degrees Celsius!
