Transforming the former Fort Wayne General Electric campus into a new multi-use space is the focus of a $500,000 investment in Electric Works from The Community Foundation of Greater Fort Wayne.
The 39 acre Electric Works includes 18 historic buildings and 1.2 million square feet of multi-use space, including office, education and retail.
“There is no doubt that Fort Wayne continues to stay relevant by advancing bold and transformative projects. The Community Foundation sees this as another opportunity to invest in the future of Fort Wayne and the region. Similar to our support and participation in the Riverfront and The Landing projects, we want to see the momentum continue.” said Brad Little, President and CEO of the Community Foundation of Greater Fort Wayne.
Phase 1 of the project deals with 712,000 square feet at a cost of $248 million. More information on Electric Works can be found here.
