Why This Matters

A catalytic downtown revitalization project will create a renewed sense of shared purpose and collective empowerment that supports diverse, homegrown economic opportunities with a social benefit.

For LIFT WC, the Elks Building is more than just a renovation project. We aim to create a renewed sense of connectedness to bring community together and the resources and relationships necessary for innovation under one roof.

This is not a new concept and communities all across the United States are currently doing similar projects. Check out a few of them below:
