The units will be located above 24,000 square feet of retail, which could include restaurants, a drug store, coffee shop or other specialty stores.
Fort Wayne Mayor Tom Henry is among those who have reserved a unit.
Fort Wayne, Ind. -- Accompanied by his wife Cindy, Mayor Tom Henry today previewed the Harrison Square condominium model that was recently completed in Martin Goldstine Knapke’s office.
While several reservation holders signed contracts prior to the model’s build-out, the Henrys’ tour will officially kick off the contract phase of the project’s development. In January, the Henrys’ reserved their place in line with a $1,000 deposit.
“Cindy and I are thrilled with the progress of Harrison Square, and we are excited to be a part of it,” said Mayor Henry, “Harrison Square signals new energy, new opportunities and significant private investment in downtown Fort Wayne. Barry Real Estate has been a tremendous partner in this catalyst venture. Our only regret is that we’re not higher on the reservation list.”
Christened The Harrison, the condominium component of the Harrison Square mixed-use development will feature 62 luxury residences in its initial phase. The units start in the $150,000s. The interior design features hard surface countertops, stone floors in the finished bathrooms, wood floors in the common spaces, Grabill cabinets, 9-foot-8-inch ceilings, and stainless steel fixtures. Every home will be prewired for FiOS (HDTV and high-speed Internet) and have dedicated underground parking.
While The Harrison is more than 100 percent reserved, reservations will continue to be taken. The process consists of a $1,000 fully refundable deposit and an agreement that asks prospective tenants to indicate their preference among remaining units. Formalization of contracts is done in the order that each reservation was taken.
South-facing units at The Harrison will feature views of the ball field, those facing north will have a vista of the downtown skyline. All units will have access to an indoor/outdoor roof deck overlooking the ballpark for game-day events and concerts.
Condominium owners will also enjoy an all inclusive membership to the Wizards’ new fieldlevel fitness center where they can watch games through the glass outfield wall or workout with the team. The residents will have sole access to a secure underground parking garage where they will have dedicated spaces for their vehicles. Keycard entry will also carry them directly to their floor.
The residences will sit above approximately 24,000 square feet of retail, which could include restaurants, a drug store, coffee shop or other specialty stores.
To view The Harrison model, interested parties should visit the office of Martin Goldstine Knapke located at 2020 East Washington Boulevard, Suite 400, Fort Wayne, Indiana (located at the southeast corner of Grant Street and East Washington Boulevard, one block east of South Anthony Boulevard).
