FORT WAYNE - The developers of a $34 million redevelopment project in downtown Fort Wayne have announced a new partnership. Cincinnati-based The Model Group says it is working with Cunningham Restaurant Group to bring a "new and unique" restaurant experience to The Landing. 

Details of the restaurant concept will be announced at a later date, however the developers say it will be unique to Fort Wayne. The restaurant and bar will be located at 123 and 131 W. Columbia Street and include a large patio that will connect the two buildings.

"The goal has always been to attract local entrepreneurs to The Landing and pair them with excellent regional dining and entertainment operators to ensure long-term success and vibrancy," The Model Group said in a news release. "CRG fits that bill as a top-tier Indiana-based restauranteur with over 20 years of experience anchoring great urban spaces all across the Midwest. We are thrilled that they have chosen The Landing to introduce themselves to Fort Wayne."

Construction on The Landing began in early 2018 and work is expected to be complete this summer. The development will feature 60,000 square feet of retail and office space, as well as 70 apartment units.
