Come Be Inspired at Belk Place
Belk Place will soon be a hub for civic engagement and philanthropy in our region.
Belk Place will be a campus of civic amenities located in the heart of Uptown Charlotte. The campus will include the Luski-Gorelick Center for Philanthropy, the Levine Conference Center, the Robinson Center for Civic Leadership and the Sonia and Isaac Luski Gallery, as well as the soon-to-be renovated Carolina Theatre and an Intercontinental Hotel that will rise above.
Named in honor of a generous lead gift to the Carolina Theatre restoration from Katherine Belk and the late Thomas M. Belk, and the late Claudia and John M. Belk, the campus will celebrate the family's many civic contributions to our region.
A legacy of Civic Engagement
In 1927 a newly expanded Belk flagship store opened to great fanfare on Trade Street in Charlotte. Nine decades later, the Belk name is returning to Uptown. Belk Place will be our region’s home for philanthropy, civic engagement and thought leadership – all synonymous with the Belk family name.

The Luski-Gorelick Center for Philanthropy serves as FFTC headquarters and as a vibrant center for philanthropic activity.
The Sonia and Isaac Luski Gallery showcases an extensive collection of glass art and other artistic works. It is free and open to the public during weekday business hours
The Levine Conference Center features 16 state-of-the-art conference rooms for community convening. Meeting rooms are offered at no charge during weekday business hours to our local nonprofits, and are available for rent to other groups.

The Center is formally named for Sally and Russell Robinson, honoring two of our community’s most respected civic and philanthropic leaders.
Once restored, the Carolina Theatre will serve as a venue for speakers, community engagement events, arts & entertainment and more.
