From Hive to Table

As part of Block 21’s ongoing effort to advance the commitment to green building infrastructure, W Austin forged a unique partnership with the local non-profit Central Texas Bee Rescue (CTBR), installing ten hives on the building’s 37th floor rooftop - the first ever apiary on a downtown Austin high-rise building. 

Transforming a barren rooftop into food-producing real estate, the hives will produce enough honey for W Austin’s TRACE Restaurant to integrate into food and beverage menu offerings and will eventually be incorporated into a variety of treatments in the property’s 4th floor AWAY Spa, drawing on honey’s healing and restorative properties.
