“Having the support and commitment of a respected firm like Barnes & Thornburg means a lot to us. It says a lot about their loyalty to Fort Wayne and the impact this building will have on our entire community,” said Tim Ash, CEO of Ash Brokerage.
A fixture of downtown Fort Wayne for 30 years, Barnes & Thornburg is one of the largest law firms in the country, with more than 600 attorneys and other legal professionals nationwide. Their approximately 30 Fort Wayne employees will occupy the south half of the Plaza’s sixth floor, which was built for commercial lease.
Barnes & Thornburg is scheduled to move in to the Plaza mid-August, while our approximately 250 Fort Wayne employees are planned to move downtown by the end of May. Ash Skyline Plaza also includes a city-owned parking garage, which is now open for monthly parkers and will be open for public parking soon.
Each of the street-level retail spaces will open at separate times, as construction and details are finalized. Occupants include:
The remaining commercial occupant on the north half of the sixth floor will be announced soon. Stay tuned!
