“The Harrison” Is Moving Upward, Possible Major Restaurant To Be Announced In The Future

Mayor Tom Henry announced Tuesday morning that financing for the Harrison retail/residential development in downtown Fort Wayne has been completed, construction is formally underway and a campaign to market 44 upscale apartments in the building has been launched.

So far three businesses have committed to locating in the Harrison.  A Three Rivers Federal Credit Union, Law offices of Carson Boxberger and O’Reilly’s Irish Bar.  Negotiations to bring a major restaurant to the development are ongoing according to developers.

The Harrison is part of the overall Harrison Square development first announced in 2007 by then Mayor Graham Richard as a means to revitalize downtown Fort Wayne.  Several of the components related to Harrison Square, Parkview Field and a Courtyard by Marriott Hotel and a parking garage have been completed.

The Harrison retail/residential development was originally intended to contain condominiums and it has seen several delays.
