The news came Thursday as Fort Wayne Mayor Tom Henry and the project developers announced the signing of the development agreements for the building. The site is expected to take up nearly a full city block bordered by Wayne, Harrison, Berry and Webster streets.
The building includes office space for Ash Brokerage, condominiums, first floor retail space and an underground city parking garage.
