A Special Day for Downtown Fort Wayne

The Ash Corporate headquarters was dedicated at 1:00 PM on June 1, 2016! The 95,000 square-foot facility is part of the new $70 million Ash Skyline Plaza. Just before Memorial Day, Ash Brokerage moved over 200 personnel into the new campus and has the capacity to expand to almost twice that size. This signature mixed-use development is transforming downtown Fort Wayne: Truly making Fort Wayne Greater!

The first floor of the complex houses 21,000 square feet of retail space, drawing people in from the city streets. These spaces, also designed by MSKTD, include tenants such as a Lake City Bank, an executive-style fitness facility operated by the YMCA, “The Golden” restaurant, and “The Find” gift shop, among others.

A fun share from our friends at Sweetwater celebrating the grand opening of their beautiful new retail store… a special guest in town approved!

(for those of you not familiar with late 70’s/early 80’s power-pop – it’s Rick Nielsen of Cheap Trick; for those of you who are – “Surrender, Surrender”  will be going thru your head all day).

Great job Sweetwater design team!
