Where you'll be

Located at the urban rooftop apiary at the Cotton Factory. The former site of the Imperial Cotton Co. Mill built in 1900 is a prime example of adaptive urban reuse. It has been transformed into a creative industries complex, with space for workshops, studios for artists and office space for creative professionals. Many are drawn to the building by its unique aesthetic and its historic charm.
