While it may appear that goats were the industrious workers transforming this property, we now have contractors onsite to further our plans. We aim to preserve, salvage, restore and reimagine this stately six-floor property. The end result, slated to debut in 2019, will include hotel rooms, restaurants, a brewery, bars, gardens and good times.
It’s a monumental task; the Elks Lodge sat empty for more than 20 years. It had its fair share of temporary guests, some of whom had creative whims with cans of spray paint. Artists are echoing these graffiti sentiments in the custom pieces being designed for the space. In the same vein, damaged and neglected woodwork and molding is being replicated in the spirit of the Elks’ original works. Plans also hint at the fun to be expected: a game room, a secret bar, a music venue with restored stage, and a tropical bar. The roof is being restored to its original shape – so you can look forward to raising the roof, so to speak!
