Plan Commission approves riverfront multi-use project

November 20th, 2018

By Dave Gong | The Journal Gazette

In a unanimous vote Monday, the Fort Wayne Plan Commission approved a primary development plan for a $61 million downtown riverfront project. 

The project, which is under development by Riverview FW LLC, calls for about 228 apartments on five floors, a 13,000-square-foot deck with a pool and about 20,000 square feet of retail space on the ground level.

Riverview FW LLC is a spin-off of Continental Property Group, a Wayzata, Minnesota-based company. The project also calls for a 1,000-space, five-level parking garage. 

Plans for the project were unveiled last year and the existing building at 124 W. Superior Street, which was formerly occupied by Smurfit-Stone Container Corp., was razed. In early January, the site became the temporary home for the former Cambray and Associates building while it was being relocated from its original location at 312 S. Harrison St. 

The site stretches from South Calhoun Street to the east and South Harrison Street to the west. A Plan Commission public hearing regarding the project was held Nov. 5. 

According to reports filed by Department of Planning Services staff, the development's approval is conditional on submission and approval of a secondary development plan, a site lighting plan and a signage plan. The developers must also continue to work with the city of Fort Wayne for streetscaping and landscaping efforts.
