American Tobacco Campus


Oh how we love American Tobacco Campus (ATC) for their support since the beginning! In her final year at NC State, Leigh-Kathryn kindly asked ATC if they would house a beehive on their rooftop-- and so Bee Downtown was born. The campus is iconic, and what most locals think of when you hear the phrase “Downtown Durham.” It houses the Durham Bulls Stadium, Durham Performing Arts Center, the YMCA and the Power Plant Gallery.  It is not shy of delicious restaurants or modern and hip apartments either; you can find a plethora of both throughout the bustling campus. Currently The American Tobacco Campus in Durham has seven rooftop hives. While the campus sponsors two hives in the ATC apiary, they have opened up their rooftop space to local companies and organizations that would like to have hives at their apiary as well. Companies/Organizations that have hives at the ATC rooftop apiary are Runaway Clothing Company, Bull Durham Beer Company, Hope Valley Garden Club, Burt's Bees and HoneyGirl Meadery.

Location: 318 Blackwell Street, Durham NC 27701
Number of Company Hives: 2
Number of Community Hives on the rooftop: 5
