Today, I had the amazing opportunity to go on a tour of the soon to be Electric Works campus in Fort Wayne. This is the historic GE campus that is located just south of Fort Wayne. This 33 acre campus is going to be revitalized in the next few years. These old buildings will soon be house markets, educations, eateries, breweries, and lofts.
It is hard to see the potential through the old chipping paint and the dust, but you have to be creative. We walked into buildings and I envisioned a market like Seattle. I envisioned people carrying fresh flowers in baskets, fresh produce from local farmers, and kids running around and playing in fountains. I could see our alums opening small businesses and shops that will be the talk of the ton. I could see art galleries from local artists. I could see new entertainment and visually appealing architecture.
Thank you for giving us this opportunity Fort Wayne. We can't wait!
