The City of Fort Wayne is starting the second and third phases of the Riverfront Fort Wayne project.
Next phases focus on planning and design for downtown riverfront development beyond the first phase, which is the design and construction of Promenade Park.
The city contracted landscape architecture and urban design firm DAVID RUBIN Land Collective to lead the second and third phases of Riverfront Fort Wayne.
The firm’s experts joined leading focus groups with local residents to learn about their vision for the riverfront. Focus group topics include zoning, downtown living, youth involvement, historic preservation, neighborhood involvement, the environment and more.
Land Collective and its team of engineers, architects, planners and economists will work for the next 12 months to deliver three items: a comprehensive riverfront neighborhood master plan, analysis and recommendations for infrastructure to serve new private development and manage the floodway, and schematic designs and construction documents for further public improvements along the river’s edge.
