FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WANE) The future of the new and improved downtown Landing could be up to the city’s residents.
The Fort Wayne Downtown Development Trust Inc., which has purchased seven building and two parking lots one block area on Columbia Street known as ‘The Landing’ in an effort to re-energize the area, has opened a survey to residents. The goal of the trust to learn what residents would like to see most in the area.
The Landing Outreach Survey will be available through Sept. 25. It asks questions like, what type of restaurants residents prefer, what sort of bars would be attractive and what kind of retail shops would be most frequented. It ends with an area to write-in a suggestion for “one big idea to happen in the Landing.”
The survey takes roughly 2-3 minutes to complete.
The city has planned for The Landing to serve as a retail and entertainment complex, with 110,000 square feet of space currently available for first floor entertainment and upper floor residential units.
Mayor Tom Henry has said The Landing project will offer residents another location to “live, work and play.”
