Downtown

We’re building a nationally recognized economy in Allen County, and quality-of-place amenities are critical in that effort.

More than 90% of Allen County business leaders agree that the revitalization of downtown Fort Wayne is the #1 factor that helps them attract and retain talent. With more than $700 million in private investment downtown over the last decade spurring additional investment throughout the community, Fort Wayne is now a leading Midwestern city for growth and positive domestic net migration.
