More Housing for Downtown Fort Wayne
By Kevin Leininger
The success of one downtown housing development has sparked a similar but even larger project in a vacant warehouse at 102 W. Superior St.
Indianapolis-based Real America Development bought the former Graphic Packaging International plant and will convert it into ground-floor shops and 66 loft-style apartments, according to spokesman Jeff Ryan. The company is currently converting the “Randall” building at 616 S. Harrison St. into 44 apartments, and that project has proven so popular that there are 100 people on a waiting list – an indication, Ryan said, that the market for downtown housing remains strong.
