Square Design

As Harrison Square moves forward, we at DFWB would like to begin looking into the next stages of the project.

The following link from the News Sentinel provides some introductory information...

"Greg Leatherman, deputy director of community development, said at Monday’s meeting Fort Wayne-based GME consulting firm would provide geotechnical testing services for Harrison Square and Fort Wayne-based Engineering Resources Inc. would provide civil engineering.

Also, Fort Wayne-based Hoch Associates will help design the development’s parking garage, which will serve the development’s hotel and baseball stadium, as well as the Lincoln Financial Group."

Hoch Associates

The following is a conceptual design from Hoch Associates for "a mixed-use parking, retail, entertainment, and residential complex for a downtown urban setting."

Feel free to comment on the parking garage design, share ideas about what design features you believe would contribute to a successful Harrison Square project. Even better, provide your design ideas: Sketchup, Photoshop, MS Paint, back of a napkin, anything will do.
