FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WANE) One of the final steel beams of the Ash Skyline Plaza was put into place Monday, a milestone in the construction of the major build.
In a special ceremony at the central downtown construction site, representatives of Ash Brokerage, the City of Fort Wayne, Weigand Construction, MSKTD and Associates and Hoch Associates signed the final beam. It was then lifted into place on the top level of the southeast corner of the building.
The $98 million project is still months away from completion, of course, though officials said it remains on target, with the parking garage set for completion in December and the retail, commercial and Ash office spaces figured to be completed May 2016.
Some 100 people are working on the site currently, officials said, a number that will nearly triple when work moves indoors over the winter.
The building will house Ash Brokerage headquarters, a city-owned 1,077-space parking garage, street-level retail space and additional commercial space.
