The LIFT Orlando mobile classroom introduces a rare partnership between downtown business leaders and urban neighborhood residents and the physical developments brought about by that collaborative work. Currently under construction, LIFT Orlando’s first development, Pendana at West Lakes, is a 200-unit high-quality, multifamily development designed for residents of all income levels to come together and enjoy as neighbors.
LIFT Orlando is also building The Community Campus at West Lakes. This complex will house a cradle to career pipeline in partnership with the existing schools and boldly address the educational, health and wellness needs of the community. The Campus will include a world-class Boys & Girls Club facility, neighboring a state-of-the-art Early Childhood Education Center, and an innovative new Health and Wellness Center across the street from LIFT Orlando’s three phases of new mixed-income housing.
LIFT Orlando will serve as a “community quarterback” for the Purpose Built Community that will remove barriers to opportunity for children and families. This approach will offer high-quality early childhood education, after-school programs for children, access to healthcare services, fitness, and nutritional resources and community support programs – all within a walkable neighborhood community.
