Going Fast


"Ft. Wayne, IN– Just eight hours after doors opened for reservations on the Harrison Square condominiums, 31 people had rushed to secure their place in the development. There are 62 condos in the first phase of the project. Chris Schoen, CEO
of Harrison Square condominium/retail developer Barry Real Estate, announced Thursday at the groundbreaking ceremony that the long awaited condos would be open for reservation Friday morning, joking that “we’d need to set up
tents.” It turns out he may have been right.

“We have been overwhelmed by the demand,” said Bill Martin, President/CEO of Martin Goldstine Knapke, “it confirms everything we suspected about people’s desire to be a part of this exciting project.”

Units at “The Harrison” will feature hard surface countertops, stone floors in the bathrooms, wood flooring in the common spaces, Grabill cabinets, 9’8’’ ceilings, and stainless steel fixtures. Every unit will be pre-wired for FiOS (HDTV and high-speed Internet). The units are also a mix of one bedroom, one plus den, two and three bedrooms and range from the $150,000’s up to the $300,000’s. The first person who submitted a reservation will have the first choice of units upon signing a contract. The second on the reservation list will choose second and so on.

To make reservations, interested parties should visit the office of Martin Goldstine Knapke located at 2020 E. Washington Boulevard, Suite 400, Fort Wayne, Indiana (located at the southeast corner of Grant Street and E. Washington Boulevard,
one block east of South Anthony Boulevard). For directions or questions, please contact Mike Brita at (260) 467-1400. Reservations consist of a $1000 fully-refundable deposit and an agreement that will ask prospective tenants to indicate
their preference among available units.

South-facing units at the Harrison will feature views of the ball field and north-facing units will have a view of the downtown skyline. All units will have access to an indoor/outdoor roof deck overlooking the ballpark for game-day events and concerts. Condominium owners will also enjoy membership in the Wizards new field-level fitness center, where they can watch games through the glass outfield wall or workout with the team. The residents will have sole access to a secure underground parking garage where they will have dedicated spaces for their vehicles. Keycard access will also carry them directly to their floor. The residences will be positioned above approximately 25,000 square feet of retail that could include multiple restaurants, a drug store, coffee shop, and wine bar."
