Jefferson Point has received approval for $3.5 million in reimbursements for a new road, and officials have released a rendering depicting the outdoor shopping mall’s intended improvements. Our partners at WPTA-TV report the project will also be funded in part by the Fort Wayne Redevelopment Commission.

The announcement follows a resubmittal of the plan earlier this month. 

Representatives from the developer said the project will be underway this summer.

“We are excited and grateful to the Redevelopment Commission for partnering with us on such an exciting revitalization project at Jefferson Pointe. Along with upgraded lighting, new paving, and refreshed paint and landscaping, a new, interior main street will provide better access and convenient parking to shops in the courtyard while maintaining a pedestrian-friendly environment. Overall, our goal is to create a more vibrant and appealing environment for our guests while also attracting new, best-in-class merchants. We look forward to getting started on those improvements starting later this summer,” said Jeff McMahon, managing partner at RED Development, in a news release.

Jefferson Pointe first floated the idea of a bisecting street in 2018 as a means of increasing the number of businesses and visitors at the property.
