Bell Works is the reimagining of the historic former Bell Labs building in Holmdel, N.J. Today, the building is one-of-a-kind destination for business and culture, complete with a blossoming ecosystem of technology, traditional offices, retail, dining, hospitality, and much more.

Bell Labs is responsible for some of the most monumental innovations that impact the way in which we work and live today. Throughout much of the twentieth century, Holmdel’s Bell Labs building served as a research facility for more than 6,000 workers. Not only was it one of the great economic drivers of the region, but it was also a hub for technological advancement.
