The City of Lynchburg has made significant investments in its downtown urban core by improving amenities, attracting anchor developments such as The Virginian Hotel, and adapting and reusing former industrial space for new uses. While many cities across the country have lured software and tech businesses downtown, Lynchburg’s Advertising, Marketing, and Design Services and Architecture and Engineering Services cluster serves as a foundation for a unique, urban, creative workforce. Already, companies like 434 Marketing, Wiley Wilson and CJMW Architecture are helping make the City of Lynchburg a dynamic place to live and work. We anticipate that the sector’s entrepreneurs and workers will continue to be drawn to Lynchburg’s cultural amenities, walkable downtown core and opportunities to connect—all of which position the City as an exciting hub for creative professionals.
