The developers of the $440 million Electric Works mixed-use innovation district in downtown Fort Wayne have selected two firms to help secure new tenants. RTM Ventures says JLL's Indianapolis office will serve as its national leasing partner and The Zacher Co. in Fort Wayne will serve as local and regional leasing partner.

The leasing teams will include real estate experts who will work to identify and engage local, regional and national top-tier commercial and office prospects, according to RTM Ventures. They will work with partners such as Greater Fort Wayne Inc., the Northeast Indiana Regional Partnership and the Indiana Economic Development Corp. in an effort to support the region's economic development strategy.

"Electric Works is a truly transformational redevelopment project, and we are honored to be an integral part of this exceptional team moving forward," said Traci Kapsalis, senior vice president with JLL’s Indianapolis office. “Our team recognizes the unique potential of the Electric Works development to attract top firms from around the country to Fort Wayne and the ability to positively impact the regional economy."

RTM Ventures is looking to add to a growing list of tenants for Electric Works, which includes Fort Wayne Metals, Parkview Health and Three Rivers Music Theatre, among others.
