News release from the City of Fort Wayne:
City proposes new location for Cindy’s Diner
(December 12, 2013) – The City of Fort Wayne has a proposal in place for a new location for Cindy’s Diner.
Later today, the Board of Park Commissioners will hear plans to locate Cindy’s Diner at West Berry Street and Maiden Lane in a portion of the parking lot of the Community Center, which is part of the Fort Wayne Parks & Recreation Department.
Today’s meeting of the Board of Park Commissioners begins at 4 p.m. at the Foellinger-Freimann Botanical Conservatory, 1100 S. Calhoun St.
Pending approval and weather conditions, the move for Cindy’s Diner would likely occur in the February timeframe.
In September, a $71 million development in downtown that includes a new national headquarters for Ash Brokerage and a residential development led by Hanning & Bean Enterprises was announced. Cindy’s Diner is currently located in the project area.
The new development would be bordered by Wayne, Harrison, Berry, and Webster streets and utilize nearly a full square block. It’s anticipated construction would begin in April 2014 and take nearly two years to complete.
