“Harrison Square is bringing new energy and new investment into the heart of Fort Wayne,” said Mayor Tom Henry. “This catalyst project is only one facet of our collective vision for a thriving community, but we’re already seeing its power to generate new ideas and excitement throughout the region. We are pleased to welcome our private-sector partners as they share the progress story of this centerpiece venture. We encourage everyone to attend.”
Harrison Square is a signature private-public initiative in the community’s efforts to strengthen downtown Fort Wayne and foster new opportunities to live, work and enjoy the core of the community. The new community gathering place is expected to spark significant economic growth and new jobs, and enhance Fort Wayne’s role as a regional leader.
The $120 million mixed-use development features 30,000 square feet of street-level retail space, 60 residential condominiums, a new 250-room Courtyard by Marriott hotel, state-of-the-art, multiuse ballpark and a 900-space parking garage. Harrison Square is unique in that all of the project components will be completed simultaneously, affording maximum impact. Future phases are anticipated to provide an additional 120 condominium units and 60,000 square feet of retail space.
