THE HARRISOn mixed-use project completes fort wayne’s harrison square development, the centerpiece of downtown revitalization plans.
The Harrison (pictured above) is the last phase of the Harrison Square development which includes Parkview Field (home of the Fort Wayne TinCaps) and is a vital component of the city’s downtown revitalization efforts. The mixed-use development will offer Fort Wayne an upscale urban living option in a one-of-a-kind setting.
The third and fourth floors of The Harrison (click here to download a brochure) feature forty-four luxury apartments ranging from one to three bedrooms with amazing views into Parkview Field or towards the Fort Wayne downtown skyline. The first floor features retail and restaurant space with the second floor occupied by commercial offices. The Harrison (scheduled for completion by February 2013) is the final component of the Harrison Square development which seeks to drive activity and economic growth back into the downtown area.
Despite the poor economy that hampered the initial phases of the project, a new public-private partnership including the owner of Whitley Manufacturing, have backed the project which celebrated a cake-cutting event on January 31st.
The New York Times profiled this unique approach to downtown revitalization in a feature article last year.

They are being trucked over from the construction plant in Marysville, WA (Whitley-Evergreen). If the weather cooperates and they all arrive on schedule, a crane will be brought in the week of December 26th to lift them on to the foundation…Once the building is assembled on the foundation, crews will begin hooking up utilities and doing the interior and exterior finish work. The District hopes to take possession of the new Science Wing in early March.
