In early 2011, Locus Development agreed to loan SiTE:LAB the recently-acquired Junior Achievement Building, a long-vacant 25,000 square foot commercial/office building in the heart of downtown, until renovations commenced in 2012. The first project undertaken in the space, SiTE:LAB/Praxis, featured dozens of installations, projections and performances, and was open to the public for one night only in conjunction with the ArtDowntown event sponsored by Dwelling Place. It was attended by several thousand people.
