FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WPTA) - As construction moves along for the Electric Works development, officials say they are looking for feedback on the project’s future.

Progress on the campus is easily spotted while driving along Broadway just south of downtown Fort Wayne. Building 19 along that road has all new windows installed and debris around the area has been cleaned up.

Building 31--which includes Fort Wayne Community Schools’ STEM-centered “Amp Lab”--will be the first to open. Union Street Market, which will eventually host an anticipated 13 food and beverage vendors, is slated to open in October of 2022. It will occupy Buildings 20 and 22. At the end of March, officials said 15 businesses have been announced for the market, including Conjure Coffee, Bragg-A-Lot Sweets & Drinks, Brooks BBQ & Chicken, and Honey Plant.

As crews continue with construction, officials say they are looking for the public to submit their ideas for the future of the Electric Works, saying they have already taken some residents’ ideas into consideration. They say to submit your ideas here.
