FORT WAYNE – A new mixed-use venture is under way in downtown Fort Wayne’s SoCal district.

Scott and Melissa Glaze and David Corcoran are restoring a building at 821 S. Calhoun St. with hopes of establishing four apartments and likely a restaurant.

They expect the project to be completed by early summer.

The roughly 7,000-square-foot three-story building was built in the 1890s as a bank, but in recent years it has housed a brokerage firm and art gallery.

Scott Glaze said workers have restored a metal-plated ceiling and the building’s red sandstone facade.

“We want to do it right,” he said, declining to disclose an investment amount. “We want apartments on the second and third floors and retail on the main floor.”

Glaze also is CEO of Fort Wayne Metals and owner of JK O’Donnell’s restaurant downtown.
