Riverfront Development

Provided by the City of Fort Wayne

  Fort Wayne Mayor Tom Henry unveiled a $70 million plan Wednesday that would develop the property on the northeast corner of Superior and Harrison streets -- the city’s “premiere riverfront property” -- into a mixed-use development.


Under Henry’s proposal, the site -- next to the brand new Promenade Park -- would include 225 apartments, a parking garage of 900 spaces, and 60,000 square feet for offices, retail space and “flex space.”

With riverfront development construction underway in Fort Wayne, the City and the parks department are left to decide on the promenade’s aesthetics. During a meeting of the parks board on Thursday, a sculpture was chosen to serve as the promenade’s centerpiece.
